Also on voile and voiliers this great movie about Yvan Bourgnon et Sébastien Roubinet and their incredible 3 days sail around the Horn and the Beagle (450nm) on a Nacra F20 cat with 6.2m.

They got 50 k freezing winds and survived to tell the story.

Movie:

Trois jours autour du Horn en cata de sport !

Hamnen tested the Dragonfly 28 sport. Lovely boat...for a price.

Lots of fun and speed with a great cruising potencial...for the size.

On the Transquadra that as most now is a solo or duo Transat for amateurs (more than 40 years old) the leading boat is an A31 and several other are among the first. I knew already that a A31 and the Jeanneau SF 32 can make about the same speed (at least on this race) as an A35 and be faster than for instance a First 40.7 or a Opium 39. I know that but I still find it amazing

Transquadra 2011

The Archambault A 31 is an incredible boat and with JPK the only one that can offer exceptional results on solo or short handed ocean races and on handicap crewed races while offering a decent cruising interior for coastal cruising or in a very spartan way even for offshore cruising.

The Transquadra offers a very interesting study to find boats that can be fast and seaworthy offshore while easy manageable solo or by a duo. The race goes on for many years, the guys that race are amateurs with more than 40 years old but they are experienced sailors, many ex top racers now in its 50's or 60's that come to have fun.

They are very knowledgeable about boats and the information that is gathered by them in what regards the most suitable boats to do this race is very precise.

The boats that go well are the A31, the A35, the JPK 9,6, the JPK 10.10 and the Sunfast 32.

I would say that it is as relevant as the presence of many of these boats on the lead of the race, the total absence of boats that would seem at first glance capable of a good results, like the Elan 350 and the First 30. Why there is no one racing with them? Well, certainly there is a reason and probably they are not competitive with the other mentioned boats.

Let's have a better look at the A31. The boat has a bulbed keel for this race but since on handicap races a non bulbed kell has better rating, they also make it with a non bulbed keel. Stupid ratings, cause the boat is more efficient with a bulbed keel.
























And a new interior they have presented this year at the Paris boat show:



And remember that amazingly this little boat with a good amateur crew on a Transat is faster than a 40ft cruiser racer, even a good fast one very adapted to solo sailing like an Opium 39 and certainly faster than the typical fast 40ft cruiser racer, like a First or a grand Soleil.

Archambault starts to have a well deserved world wide recognition and has dealers everywhere, including United States and Australia.

From a small one too really big ones

Some of the more radical sailing propositions, most of them with fixed wings and hybrid propulsion (wind and sun):

Just beautiful the new look of Hydropter:





New sponsor, big money, big campaign. The boat is now sponsored by a big French shipyard, a leader on navy ships, DCNS.

I had already said they were going this year to make an attempt on the trans-Pacific, from Los Angeles to Honolulu record. They plan for 2013 to beat the 24-hour absolute record (908.2 nautical miles) and the record around the UK, both belonging to "Banque Populaire V", the world's biggest racing trimaran and the one that has also the circumnavigation record.

For 2014 they plan to beat the transatlantic record and make it in less than three days. The actual record of 3 days, 15 hours, 25 minutes and 48 seconds belongs also to "Banque Populaire V".

So, it will be like David against Goliath. It will be interesting to follow.

kootenay is on a distinguished road
We were moored in North Sound VG the this week near the Yacht Kokomo III. 170 ft long and just simply beautiful. Would give at least one of my kids and my left leg for her. the same night woke up to the most incredible Fireworks show as well. Somebody spent half a million bucks on that show. I would guess at least I used to be in the Fireworks business.

Thanks for posting. Yes it is beautiful, a Ed Dubois design, but you would need all your kids to sail her not to mention do the anti-fouling

I have already posted before about "Black Pepper" that all carbon French daysailer that has impressed me on the Paris boat show. I would say that impress is a small word, I almost fall in love with the dam boat. I have posted some photos and it was enough to understand that it was a great boat but that would not explain that big attraction that we call love.

I guess that with the very good photos that Yacht magazine posted on line is easier to understand. I bet they are going to test that boat, it seems to me that they were as impressed as me
