Re: Follow the ARC
Its always interesting reading what types of boats are entered in the ARCs and other blue water rallies.
On this site, you will find page after page of people comparing one blue water boat to another and when the question of a mass-production boat comes into the fray, then the fecal matter starts to really hits the fan.
But looking at the entries, one sees a bunch of Beneteau Oceanises, Jeanneau Sun Odysseyies, and other production boats that don't get as much respect as the Amels and Valiants of this world.
So its pretty educational to see what people on sailing forums consider blue water boats, versus the actual type of boats that are sailed in blue water.
