Re: Interesting Sailboats

One of the best places to sail in the World (I was born there) too bad not many can afford to sail there. Subic to Boracay regatta.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Not many boats, but great images. The TP 52 is really a very well balanced boat: it can go fast upwind and downwind. That beautiful cruising boat that I have posted some posts back (Equilibrium 55) is based on the TP 52 hull.

Take a look at these images. Pity the bad quality but even so they are fantastic: A Tp52 at full blast:

Paulo

Virgin Islands on a 31ft:

Cruising virgin Islands on a small boat, an Oceanis 31



Ok, it is a charted boat but I don't see any problem in going there in an Benetau Oceanis 31 with a good weather planning. Lot's of places to got shelter on the way.

Favorite boats:

Regarding cruising and occasionally racing and getting back to those images of those guys cruising happily on the virgin Islands on a 30ft cruising boat let me show what is my favorite boat on that size, all things considered, including price and suitably for cruising and racing:











If the intention was more racing than cruising or if I lived alone and had the extra money I would chose the A31 over this one. The A31 is hard to beat racing and is a very good offshore boat.

And what about the First 30? Yes, it is a great boat and I really don't know if it is better on the regatta field (that depends on ratings and I really don't care) but this one is a slightly better offshore boat, specially solo or with a short crew and their interior is also slightly better for cruising, with a big oven and a good galley. Both boats have a good storage and the Elan even has a wet locker.

The stability curves of both boats should be close and are very good. This one is from the Elan 310:



Off course both these boats are not the 30fts with bigger interior on the market and I would find them adequate for a couple with 2 kids cruising, or 3 adults. More than that and a Bavaria a Jeanneau or a Oceanis would be a better solution but then goodbye to great sailing fun and to occasional racing

Record:

and some great images of one of the longest standing sail records (5 years), belonging to Alex Thomson on the Old Hugo Boss (a bit more than 500nm in 24h with a duo crew). He also holds the solo 24h record. Hugo Boss is a Finot/Conq designed Open 60.
