Re: Interesting Sailboats

Yes Chimbatete, the Tarac is a beautiful boat and that video is a nice one, thanks for posting.

Regarding the Salona 34 you are exagerating on the price:

But if you or your family is interested in one of those to take to Canada I guess you can have a new 35 almost for that price, I mean with a huge discount.

....

JonB, I did not know the Morgan 27 but it seems a very modern boat for its time and I can understand what you mean: They probably represented the same approach separated by 35 years, but the hull and the underwater appendices have little in common. Take a look:

Yes, I figured the Comet would be a lot lighter and have much more radical fins - actually I was surprised the Comets keel shape was as similar as it was to the Morgan - I would have expected a deeper, more vertical, bulbed keel, not a swept fin. I was just surprised that such a contemporary boat could be so reminiscent of a 40 year old boat. I think their target market is (was) probably much the same as well - generally younger and after performance far more than comfort.

Thanks for the pics - I like it a lot.

That is the swing keel:



The boat can also come with a foil with a fixed torpedo keel, the kind you would expect on this boat

Outstanding the speed that this boats can return to its feet after being capsized, even with a lot of sail out That was a double hit, if the boat had a lot of inertia (a lot of weight for the same RM) and was still capsized when it was hit by the second wave, the story could be other. We can also see clearly the boat going sideways and rotating dissipating with movement the wave energy (look at the clouds) otherwise than with a rolling movement.

Other impressive image. Great racing:



Volvo Ocean Race 2011-2012 | Race Data Center

Groupama is holding on in the lead making no mistakes. At almost the same speed and second now is Puma, at about 50NM. More big wave and high winds on the next 6 hours.

Camper is out of the race: It is going to Chile to repair the bow damage. Lots of damages in the bows. It seems the designers have to review the calculations on that point of the boat. The guys from Grupama said that the damage on their bow happened when they were falling from 8m waves...not once, but many times

Re: Interesting Sailboats

And another big race that is almost there is the "Spi Ouest". It is a classical on the French coast and this years's is the 34th edition. All kinds of boats racing there and hundreds of them, professionals and amateurs all having fun together:

Have a look at one of the past editions:

Re: Interesting Sailboats

As it was expected more great images of the VOR:




Groupama is holding on going at a mad speed and turning South as much as they can looking for big winds trying without success to go away from Puma. Both boats have leaved Telefonica behind and maintain the 50NN distance between them.

Just click on the weather button and look what kind of wind they are after

Volvo Ocean Race 2011-2012 | Race Data Center

If they can make it they will leave Telefonica behind but they can break on that conditions. Telefonica is betting on that and is going more to the North with less tempestuous conditions but with less speed.

Crazy race this one betweem Groupama and Puma

We were out this weekend and saw for the first time a new First 45 in the flesh. Most impressive looking ride. I think this was a lower tech version, aluminum mast, wire rigging, but appeared to have the joystick system. Great looking boat, though.. I think the proportions really come into sync at this length.

Only thing was the cockpit layout was such that the driver is pretty well out of the trim picture.. but I suppose this boat is meant to be properly crewed up.
