RM 1260: Maiden voyage on a new boat

Nice video for several reasons: a Rm 1260 chasing a Jeanneau 409 (also a fast boat). We can see that the Jeanneau is marginally slower and sails with more heel with gusts having more effect on stability while the RM is rock solid and could probably take more sail.

On autopilot the RM would have no trouble in keeping the course on these conditions while on the Jeanneau they would probably have to take some sail down. The Jeanneau is much more closer to the limit than the RM.

Also interesting in what regards to show the visibility from the interior to the outside: nice in what regards looking at the scenery but very useful to be inside with bad or disagreeable weather keeping an eye on the sails and on the horizon.

also interesting this comment by the owner and sailor:..."you do not hear the hull/rigging making any noise."
