Paulo,

In that Transquadra clip (post 2204), there's a quick glimpse of someone marking the spreaders with tape. Do you know the reason for doing this?

Thanks for making living on the hard a bit less painful.

Regards,

The guy is putting a foam protection to prevent the mainsail to be harmed when put hard against the spreader while running downwind, or at least is what seems to me.

And talking about the Transquadra, the front pack is just arriving:



Unless they broke something the victory on the duo crewed boats is not going to escape to Chanu and Peclard on a A35 but for second is a hot race with 3 boats very close, an A31, an A35 and precisely the JPK 110 that is on that movie.

Great race for all of them specially for the Franco Spanish team on the little A31 that is a big contender for the victory in compensated time. Well, anyway the boat name is Vitoria and that means Victory in Spanish

On solo big fight for the victory between a JPK 10.10 and a SunFast 32. Those two, Vicariot and Hamon made a fantastic race leaving all the other Solo sailors behind and are among the best duo crews. In fact they are 6th and 7th on a global classification. Chapeau

Tomorrow we should have movies of them coming to port.

Regards,
If you mark the spreaders at, say, 2 inch intervals it's easier to estimate clearance between a headsail and the spreader tip..it's a sailtrim aid.

A very efficient tuning trick, that of course only works with non overlapping headsails .

Please keep us updated Paulo.
I'm certainly not the only one being very curious about your final choice!

I leave tomorrow for Italy. I have already saw the boat and I like the condition as well as the owner. The survey is just to see if everything is all right as I hope it will be. You can see the boat here:



Well, there is more boats on that race,I will give you some clews:

1- Ir is not the Alfa-Romeo
2- It is a 40ft boat (a bit bigger)
3- It is a 2007 boat
4- The boat is still in production
5- It is a relatively fast boat
6- It has a good cruising interior

Let's see who is going to hit the nail first

I will be all week in Italy, I will go with my daughter and I will be showing her some of my favorite places so I will not post, or just post occasionally.

It is your thread, your's and of all that have been posting or are following almost every day. Post at will and try not to post ugly boats

Regards

Paulo

Just a last post with the movies of the two first duo crews to arrive at Martinique, on the Transquadra.

The first team was as expected Chanu and Peclard on a A35 and the second to arrive, winning that hot race for 2th, the French/Spanish team, Pintos - LemiŤre on the small A31, Chapeau to both teams:


Arrivée du 216 Thinkanalytics por overlapprod


Arrivée de 233 Victoria. Pintos Ager - Lemière... por overlapprod

The three first solos have already arrived. Fantastic race from the three that come separated by 3 hours, each of them separated by 1 hour. If we consider a single classification the first solo arrived in 6th , the second in 7th and the third on 9th. The first one was Vicariot on a JPK 1010 , the second was Hamon on a SunFast 3200 and the third was Peraud and he has made a fantastic result with an older boat, a JOD 35, a 1991 design by Daniel Andrieu. The Jod is also a jeanneau and curiously Daniel Andrieu is also the designer of the SF 3200. Chapeau to Daniel Also

..... I missed something along the way, Paulo.. I thought a Salona was in your sights.

So I'm going with the X-41 (WAG)

Yes, but in the end a problem with tax (VAT) made it impossible for me to buy a new boat, that in that case would have been a Salona 38. The budget was not enough, so I had to turn to the used market and probably was not a bad idea because the market right now is bad for selling but good for buying.

No, it is not a X-41. That is a fantastic boat but the interior is very poor for crusing. The one that was a good cruising interior is the X-40.

Regards

Paulo
