If we look only to the interior we would say that this was an old boat.

The boat interior really needs the work of a good interior boat designer, one used to light materials.

Not for Cruising...

Hi Together!

Not for cruising but definitely an interesting sailboat for having lots of fun:

Look this pic how I enjoyed the weekend on San Francisco Bay having the chance to join some great sailors on this new 33ft cat

Paulo,

Regarding that RM. I noticed the cockpit traveler. It would seem to divide the cockpit up making it impossible to provide a full cockpit canopy. It does look to be a fast boat, but man, the 70's called and they want their interior back.

That's a boat for guys that like to sail and travel far and also a boat to circumnavigate. You have to choose if you want a perfect control of the main or some more commodities.

Nevertheless the boat has a big bimini.

Regarding the interior, it is not from the 70's, it's a modern one. Well I have to admit I don't like it but lots of guys like that zen look. RM (with this one and the other models) is probably the brand that have grow more last year...unless it was Pogo

Well, we had 12-15 or 20 knots. The picture from us above has been taken by a sailing blog-author. Its cool steering such a machine with flying hull - the altitude is the feedback you get for how to steer...
At the same time I found it being much more relaxed than expected.

New Zealand sailors and designers are know by his quality all over the world but in what regards solo or short crew racing they are just at the beginning. More than 20 years after a famous duo circumnavigation of the Island they are doing it again and still in a very amateur way and that's one of the things that make it interesting. All sorts of boats and crews, including cruisers. I like the spirit




Movie:

http://www.3news.co.nz/Challenges-in...9/Default.aspx


Looking at the results from the first leg I saw that in real time the faster boat was a Tiller 10.6 with 7h37m beating much bigger and fast boats like the Krakatoa a well know Pogo class 40 (made several Hobart's) with 8h31m and a First 47.7 with 8h35m.

Well, what the hell is a Tiller 10.5?????


It is this one (photos from Katrina Webster):














Ok! Very nice boat, lots of form stability and I bet a long keel and lot's of ballast (more than the Pogo) but who is the designer and the builder?

First time I heard about the Tiller!

Auckland skipper David Tiller's self-designed and built 10.6m composite sloop, is also back for a crack at the race after completing the 1998 event.

Beautiful presentation for a new sailboat race, the AF offshore race in Sweden, lots of nice and interesting boats, a pleasure to look at:

Movie:


Qbrick - Web TV Professional


The race comes to substitute an old famous Swedish race, the Gotland race and aims at an even more international participation. It will start inside the capital, Stockholm and that should be a spectacle to watch.



Starting in Stockholm Saturday, June 30 and Sunday, July 1 through Sandhamn - around Gotland. Finish and prize giving takes place in Sandhamn on Wednesday 4 July.

KSSS has a long tradition of organizing international regattas and offshore races. After 100 years, Sandhamn been Sweden's most famous sailing center and Gotland Race, the world's greatest ocean races were sailed for the first staged in 1937. Now we are taking a big step for building a new sailing event Mitti Stockholm. All are welcome as participants or as spectators, along the shore or by boat along the island path. Event area will be open to the public from Thursday, June 28.


ÅF Offshore Race 28 juni - 4 juli :: KSSS
