PCP will become famous soon enough
Some more information about the Transquadra:

First let me make a correction. Last edition had 239 racing boats.
The numbers I have posted on the last post are the ones that are already inscript for the 2011 race .

More than words I will post some videos. Look at the Guys...lots of them with more than 50 years old, some with more than 60, look at those happy faces .

That's the European amateur sailing adventure...the dream of every sailor that likes to go fast and away...to the horizon.

That's an amateur race, no professional racers, everybody older than 40 years ...but the best really go fast: The last video shows the fastest duo, on a 35ft boat, an A35 and he says that for three times the boat almost touched 23K.

Not bad for a fast small cruising boat with a pair of amateurs

By the way, have a look at this thread:

Interesting Sailboats

That's about a fast cruising boat that could (and will) go fast on this race. I bet that in the next one there will be several competing.
