, posting from Croatia(zadar). This apartment has an internet conection.
I have already sailed the Elan 380. Tried to catch the 350 but I had dracon sails and the 350 had racing sails. No way
The guy that owns the 380(is a racer) told me that he had already raced with the 350 and that he had won every time in real time. But his boat had the racing sails out this time because he his going to cruise with the family. Bad luck
I would like to be in the water with both boats with the same sails to really see the difference.
Tomorrow I will go the Salona shipyard to see the new 41 and if I'm lucky after that I´m going to sail the 42.
Guys, the Cigalle is not a centerboarder but a fast deep bulbed keeled ULD aluminum sailboat.
Marty, the boat on the Andrew's movie is a OLEA. The Olea is a twin keel version of Bongo. Twin keel or single keel, both are fast and interesting sailboats.
A good and well designed twin keel has other advantages than a shorter draft for a similar performance
