Welcome to the Viper 640 Class

The Viper 640 is a high-performance one-design sport boat.
At 21 feet long and only 748 lbs, it combines the stiffness of a keelboat with the acceleration and planing abilities of a dinghy. The design mandate was "Simple, Clean and Effective".  The Viper has a precise and exhilarating feel on the helm, a spacious cockpit for 3 people, strict one-design class rules and ease of launching by ramp or hoist.

Day 2 Viper 640 North Americans: Kicking It In To Gear
Written by Class Admin   
Thursday, 10 October 2013 21:24

HOUSTON, Texas. (October 10): With a better forecast than yesterday, Viperers kicked it into gear for Day Two of the 2013 Viper North Americans in Houston. The forecast called for a building sea breeze and cooler temperatures, and sure enough, by the end of the day Vipers were planing downwind at 14 knots in 18 knots of wind.

Day two of the Viper 640 NAs started off less than promising with about 6 knots of pressure. Malcolm Gefter pulled a horizon job in Race 1, favoring the left. Jay Golison finished in 2nd with Brad Boston and Jason Carroll finishing in 3rd and 4th, respectively.

With the breeze building steadily, the second race was changed to 3 times around, although some teams did not get that memo – on the second run, the top 5 boats each sailed through the finish line with no horn before turning up to sail backward to the leeward gate, causing a large reset in the scores. Luke Lawrence was able to sneak in and snatch first place since the top 4 boats had unknowingly crossed the finish line too early. David Chapman, Peter Beardsley and Gefter finished in the top four.

2013 Viper North Americans - Day One Press Release
Written by Class Admin   
Wednesday, 09 October 2013 19:40
HOUSTON, Texas. (October 9): Thanks to all the hard work over the past couple of months, the newest location of the North Americans, Houston, has gotten underway. A total of 29 boats made the trip to the Republic of Texas, with boats representing 14 different states. Racing began today and will conclude on Saturday, October 12th.

After months of waiting, the fun finally started. The first race started with light winds of about 5-6 knots and was windward/leeward twice around. Malcolm, Gefter and crew (Wilem van Waay and Victor Diaz De Leon) took and early lead in the first race but Jay Golison and crew (Steve Flam and Ched Proctor) were able to edge out and take first place.

Breeze built from 5 to 8 knots throughout the day as a cold front from Tropical Storm Karen provided some relief (84 degrees) from the typical Texas heat. Winds were shifting from 90-130 degrees but on average competitors saw about 115 degree wind angle.

David Chapman who has been sailing Fer De Lance with Glyn Locke and Ian Nicholson, showed the match racing circuit a bit of Viper talent when he won the Chicago Match Race Center Invitation A event last week. He had to snake past the #1 ranked World Match Racing Circuit skipper and tactician along the way.

David "Chappo" Chapman aka "The Closer" got talent!

From the Regatta Report: "The penultimate Grade 3 events in the 2013 season of the Chicago Match Race Center ended with young Australian talent David Chapman winning the Invitational A event (Sept 26-27). Chapman topped a field of eight teams from four nations.
