Let’s just say — for the sake of argument — that Finn dinghies suddenly vanished from Earth. What then would all the big guys do? The answer from father-and-son sportboat purveyors Brian and Hayden Bennett — who themselves are too large for most 14-foot singlehanders — is the VX Evo. As the elder Brian says, the VX Evo is a “totally strict one-design for Finn-size sailors.” As the creator of the Viper 640 and VX One Design, Brian has been around long enough to know, however, that there are far more average Joes out sailing than hulky Finnster types. To broaden the boat’s appeal, therefore, he and his son have developed three different sail sizes (essentially 10, 9 and 8 square meters) that fit the two-piece carbon mast, which allows mixed competition. “We’ve worked hard to get the sail-to-power matrix just right,” says Brian, “to equalize competition so a lighter sailor can go against a heavier one.” Another scenario he envisions is two teens giving a bigger guy a run for his money.
