Tokyo / Japan

Postby k_kirk » Tue Mar 11, 2008 7:37 pm

Hi Everyone,

I have been admiring the MPS and the class contributions on this forum for a long while. Bought the K6 DVD as well and I think I'm sold. I want one. Here's the catch. About to move to Tokyo for a few years due to work commitments and would like to find out if the class exists in Japan at all. Ideally I would like to go for a test sail before turning desire into reality. Please let me know if you sail your MPS in Japan or know of people. Not even sure if any was sold to Japan yet. Please let me know.

Many thanks,
KK

Hi Rick,

You're right. There's always a first and I don't mind being the one. Its quite exciting actually. You might have seen some of my older posts in Y&Y under same user name as here. I am currently based in Singapore and sail a 29erXX. I am most likely going to bring the 29erXX to Tokyo as well. My problem is that I often find myself looking for a crew and hence the desire for a single hander. Long term I also want to build a SwiftSolo but the Japan assignment is putting that dream on hold. So MPS seems to be the bill for me as I will have limited time & crew.

I am also looking for sailing venues and came across a club south Tokyo with some RS800 & RS700 action going on so perhaps thats the direction to go rather than look at acquisition. Not knowing where I will end up after Japan I am a little vary of buying yet another boat but will do if I have to.

Should I talk to Dave @ Ovi then for pricing including shipping etc?

Regards & Thanks,
KK

We do in fact have atleast one MPS in Japan that I know of.
We supplied one to Takao Otani last year who is also the Musto Importer for Japan.
If you drop me a mail I will forward your details on to him.
Regards,

Chris.

Super! Thanks for the information. I have his email address. He is also involved with the 9'ers and so his name / email was passed on to me. I will get in touch with him. Most appreciated.
