Re: Interesting Sailboats

Never realized it was so easy to reef one of those . Just fold in the middle.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Telefonica is out of the race too. It has to do a pit stop in Ushuaia to repair bow damage:

Telefónica announced several days ago that they were slowing down to prevent further damage and skipper Iker Martínez confirmed on Tuesday that delamination to the bow, sustained when a huge wave crashed down on them last week, would make a stop necessary before the finish line in Itajaí in Brazil.

“As you can see, we've got no problems in terms of continuing to sail, but if we continue to violently crash against the waves like this the damage could worsen and we want to rule out the possibility of that happening," said Martínez, who is determined to go on and complete the leg.

“What we've done so far is to fix some battens to the deck at the bow to reinforce the section where the delamination has occurred, which is therefore weaker. The issue we've got is that nothing dries and so we've had to repeat the exercise a few times.

Groupama and Puma, the only survivors, are still going South, flat out in a mad race against each other. Will their boats hold out?

Re: Interesting Sailboats

As I have said before YachtingWorld Magazine is posting some videos explaining advanced sailing techniques. I find the movies very clear. I have already posted the first one but I will post it again with the other two, to be all together.

enjoy:

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Probably the small cruising cat I like more is the Edel. Funny that I never talked about them here. They are presenting new models, the 33 and the 42 but I think it is really an update of the previous models (the 42 was know as Helios 42).

These are not pregnant or fat cats but fast cats with small windage and a very good cruising interior.

I love then so much that if the Med marinas were not so expensive and I wanted only a boat for coastal cruising with some offshore medium passages I would have seriously considered the Edel 33.

I am not saying that the 33ft is not Ocean going capable and I am sure many have crossed the pond but everybody has their concept and limits regarding what they consider their threshold in what regards bluewater sailing and I would accept that with a 38ft cat and be really confortable with the 42.

But the one that has a price similar to a 40ft boat is the 33ft, not the 42 and it is always like that with cats: they are a lot more expensive than similar sized monos and even if they have more space for size, the same cannot be said in what regards seaworthiness, or at least, it is my opinion.

Back to the 33ft:









Don't miss the 33 slide show here. The boat has a really nice interior:

And regarding the 42 what can we say except that it is a beautiful boat. The first foto was taken by me in a Galiza marina, some years ago, because the boat looked just right, a perfect cruiser.

This is the old model, the Helios 42:







Take a look at this interesting test sail where several 42 cats are compared with an Oceanis 50. What is the only one that can do better than the Oceanis upwind? The Helios 42, off course

This is the new Helios 42 cruiser, a remake of Helios:

They say that the boat is made not to be expensive, back to the essentials they say.



But the real new one the one that makes me say UAU!!! is this one, the new Electric version of the 42. I guess they have preferred to maintain the more traditional old 42 for the more conservative ones and for the ones that like really modern things, they propose the new 42, electrical and all



Take a good look:

Nice images of Hanse 415 sailing, from the Yacht magazine boat test (on the last edition).

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Wind is the power of our boats...and here serves an art form. Amazing the way wind moves. I would have expected a much less kinetic effect. Nice

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Some new photos of the Bavaria Vision 46 posted by Yacht Magazine. They have already tested the boat and the test will come out on one of the next editions. I want to see if they say that the boat sails as well as it looks and it looks remarkably good for a boat with such a big interior volume. Great work by Bruce Farr.
