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.

Better Know A Viperer: Ed Feo

altThose of you on the West Coast and maybe some of you from the East Coast have had the pleasure to meet and sail against Ed Feo over the past couple years in the Viper. Ed has been very active in the fleet and a great addition to the group. Many of you might not know this, and he is much too humble to mention it, but Ed is one of the best Karaoke singers on the West Coast. Look for him at the NAs in Houston, buy him a beer and challenge him to a round of karaoke!

What is your home port: Long Beach, CA

Viper owned: "Locomotion" US 104. This was the boat sailed successfully by Tim Carter. I named the boat "Locomotion" after my prior boat, which was an Andrews 45. I had a bunch of gear with the name on it, so it made sense to keep the name! The Andrews 45 was called "Locomotion" by its original owner. He liked the song by that title, I guess. Anyway-- its a good name for a fast boat.

How long have you been racing Vipers: I have been racing Vipers for a couple of years. I was introduced to the boat by Tim Carter. One screaming reach with the kite up and I thought-- "I gotta have one of these."

Ched's Perspective! Sail trim and tactics from the maestro at Newport
Written by Ched Proctor

After sailing the last two Viper regattas as crew I decided it would be fun to steer at the Bacardi Newport Regatta and get a different perspective. Kay and Karen were kind enough to offer up their Viper #98  and I quickly accepted. There were, as always, a bunch of things I learned over the weekend about Viper sailing...
