However - for serious long distance sailing, e.g. a circumnavigation, may be a Pogo is not robust enough? What about loosing lightweight rudders at high speed due to drifting objects like turtles or so? And will a carbon mast be as reliable and forgiving like a more conventional one?

Ocean: The OVNI has the lifting keel and the Cigale has a Centerboard as I recall. As for lack of speed, compared to the 22kn that was mentioned a few posts ago, sure you won't hit that in an OVNI but look at the stats I mentioned. She's stiff and has plenty of sail area so should be responsive, especially for a cruiser.

MyOcean....Ovni too slow ? You're a hard man to please, they'd be well fast enough for me and as for the Cigalle I don't need no leefting keel.
I realise it could come in handy sometime but in general I'm afraid I don't think they warrant the expense and possible maintenance hassles.

tdw: Enjoy the beer and the boat. Better'n work anyday

I will admit to being born on Pill Hill in Seattle, above Charbucks HQ, which was a sears building at one time. Tulleys as I recall is down there in the old Rainer brewery. Two great building of old, not some drink type establishments that taste absolutely horrible!

Well its coming up to 0500 in Sydney, a sliver of waning moon rising in a clear starry sky as dawn approaches. After a few weeks of pretty ordinay weather it looks like we are in for an absolute corker of a weekend. Predicting 10 -15 knots of wind and mostly sunny, temp 50 - 60 fahrenheit. Not bad for winter eh ?

Right now the Wombet is still fast asleep, but as soon as she stirs from her slumber, we'll be on our way.

10 - 15 knots my arse. Ha. Barely a puff all weekend. The only things moving near where we moor were really light weight things, mainly without a lump of diesel engine to shift.

Oh well, never mind. That cockpit locker and the lazarette really did need to be emptied out, repainted and reorganised. Oh yes, and we got the new Rocna shipped and stowed.

Still and all it was a lovely weekend, we had plenty of food and grog on board, good reading matter and nice music. Company was pretty good as well. (hey she might read this, I'd better behave.)

Normal weather for the weekend, lets put it that way!LOL

We had a signwriter in the sky...he was trying to write "Come Back to Jesus" but before he had finished the "to" disappeared, then "Come Back" went. I can imagine his reaction, as he looked over his shoulder "Jesus".

What though ? That religion is nowt but a passing puff of smoke ?

Now be careful...I'd hate to have to move this glorious thread to OffTopic. Paulo would have me beaten up if I did. He's only been a few days and we have damn near trashed the place already.

Of course is a horse of course, or some such riddle dee dee diddle rhyme of some sort!

I would not expect anything less of a fuzzy wombat to mess the place up whilst I is gone!

So with that, have not gotten any new sailing rags for the month of august, to know what is or is not new. ALtho the Jeanneau 409 I mentioned last month or so, does have some specs at the main jeanneau site, along with what appears to be some sailing.......

Now to wait and see what the rest of the line does......

altho I still am lusting for a sunfast 3200..........
