Re: Interesting Sailboats

Speaking of Archambault, I bet I'm not the only person who thinks the upgrade from the Mumm (Farr) 30 to the M34 for the Tour de France la Voile was a terrific one. Check out this video shot in 25 knots, gusting to 30. In the old days, you'd see Mumm 30's crashing left and right, downwind. The M34 just takes off like a rocket on rails.

If you look at the hull shape it's sort of in a transitional mode between more conventional sport boats and the newer generation of hard-chined, broad transom racing machines like the Farr 400, McConaghy 38 and Soto 30.

We deal in lead, friend.
