Re: Interesting Sailboats

I must say I am surprised how Elan can send a totally naked, not even teak in cockpit, boat to shows and test and on top of it having it 1000 - 1500 kg above "normal" weight.

In the video I was impressed by the clean wake, I guess due to more rocker/higher chines. Speed not that impressive though, they are speaking swedish and norwegian and saying 20 knots of wind and 9,5-9,8 knots of speed with code zero or gennaker. In the end they hit 11, 8 which is nice, though.

Regards,
Anders
