Chile has some of the best if not the best American wines. Portuguese are investing there. I have tried several among them this one:

VIÑA LOS BOLDOS

It is a great wine...and also belonging now to a Portuguese wine company that is modernizing production and trying to improve quality even more.

Back to boats, it seems that the bath tub bow is growing faster than what I would expect. Before it comes to 40class racers, such a well known and reputed NA firm as Reichel/Pugh is proposing a 90ft scow to attempt to beat the Transpac record.

That's the boat:



And there are other proposals on the way. Tison had already proposed this one in 2010 saying it would be 10% faster. I guess he is right:

Vor 70



A French victory but not a deserved one. I feel sorry for Telefonica even if it is good for the race. Now Grupama is closer

Re: Interesting Sailboats

It looks amazingly like a flattened sponge.

All in the eye of the beholder, no doubt, but a far cry from the stunning futurism of L'Hydroptère.

Well, I have to say that I don't like the look but these is the kind of research that makes the boat design knowledge evolve. Have a look at the underwater wet surface on this picture:



and you will see that the bath tube kind of bow provide a nicer and cleaner underwater shape.

This type of bow on the radical way it is proposed on these boats will have problems going upwind, providing a uncomfortable motion and it will not be suited to cruising boats but it will contribute to the knowledge in what regards bow design and to better and more efficient bows even for cruising boats.

I mean after this the idea that an absolutely sharp bow is the best and only way to get performance will not stand and we will begin to see more rounded bows.

As I have said the funny thing is that it is not a new thing. Older boats from other centuries, even the fast ones, had more rounded bows and ancient treaties recommended them as the right way to have a good and fast boat.

Regards

Paulo

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paulo, no doubt.
And, I am in no position to judge design considerations. Though your post did cause me to contemplate the Airbus, an actual bus, and the barge, in terms of bows. Oh, and Thor Heyerdahl's RA II Please check out the sea motion in
. Any thoughts, compared to modern yacht design? One of the more interesting sailboats, and sailors, to have roamed the seas ...
