Some top boats can rig it for the type of racing you want to do. For instance, the A35 that is as good solo racing as crew racing....with different rigging set-ups. The same with the JPK 10.10.

Hi Paulo

It's a lovely boat and it seems to be fast. However, the mainsheet track is placed at the right place, but i did not figure out why it's 20 cm above deck level. I saw the tracks of salona and they are perfectly fitted at deck level. It is quite possible to stick your foot in this track. Beyond this, it's a great boat.
I have a question regarding solo or crew rigging. Does this actually exist? For instance, i saw azurre, another sexy boat which although it claims to be short handed it has runners which means another 2 crew for gybing.
