Talking about Salona, a test on the 41 by a NZ sailing magazine:
I love that boat and I know what I am talking about. I sailed one for a week
And regarding Salona, the 35 has won its first victory on the Hamble Winter Series while the older 34 continues to win, this time in Finland and with incredible results in real time too. The boat was only beaten, and not for much by a X35 (a race boat) beat two other X35, a Finnflyer 36, a A40 and a Finngulf 41 among others and I mean in real time
because in compensated it was way ahead of everybody.
That should be a hell of a crew and this was not a short race, they had taken about 16 hours to finish it.
