LOL paulo and melissa! re the awards being good bad or otherwise! Please note my first line,

"Be it you agree, or do not agree, there is this years BOTY winners from Cruising World announced this morning."

The Tartan.........they seem to be suckers for them! That thing is a C&C 121 with a different deck and sail plan from what I can tell! An 8 yr old hull getting BOTY!LOL What the he!! are thee thinking!

Part of the problem/issue if you will, is many of the major European brands do not sell here NA, so the "BETTER" boats if you will do not show up, so they do not get rated, hence why I can see where "MUCH" of the world does not follow or worry about how well CW/SW votes boats in for BOTY!

I have not personally been on the Jeanneau as of yet, other than knowing a few that have, it appears to be well thought out and sails well for what its intent and application is. "Is it the Best?!?!?!?" like ALL things great and small......maybe/maybe not!

She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
