Linjett 34 sail performance

I looked a bit better at the Linjett sail performance and the best way to do that is through the handicap rating tables.

On Sweden they use an handicap called Lys. The bigger the rating the faster the boat.

I found the Lynjett 34 rating and some other known boats, American and European, not many because they race mostly Swedish boats. I guess I was right in saying that the Lynjett 34 is a bit slower than the Arcona 340 and in saying that the Lynjett is a fast sailboat, a performance cruiser.

The Lynjett 34 rating is between 1.23 and 1.25

Comparing with old performance cruisers or modern mass production cruisers:

C40 - 1.20.... HR 36 - 1.15....Dufour 385 - 1.21.....Arcona 36 - 1.22....

Najad 371 - 1.09....Sweden Yachts 390 - 1.24.....Swan 36 S&S - 1.13....

Swan 371-1.20 .....Swan 411 - 1.25....C&C 33 - 1.13....

Comparing with modern performance cruisers:

Dehler 34 (2002) -1.25....Arcona 340 - 1.29.....First 36,7 - 1.29....J/92 - 1.26.....J/105 - 1,29
