Transat AG2R

Here are those images with heavy weather. Pity we cannot see how they had coped with the really bad weather. On these images the wind is about 20/25K. On the previous night it blow 35/45K

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Two days working to refloat a J/35 that sunk in the stupid way! Tomorrow I will finish. Very tired.

Sorry for the off topic.

Benetau Figaro II

and while we wait for more great images of the Ag2r Transat, some nice images of Thomas Ruyant sailing a Benetau Figaro II. A great boat that shoulf be at the end of its life as a solo racer. Soon many will be found cheaply for sale and this is a great offshore boat that can easily be modified for cruising.

Believe it or not the top guns that sail these animals are complaining that the boat is not powerful enough. I guess that today it is possible to do better. This is a great design but already with some years on it.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paulo,

Can't wait on your review of this new baby. Can't find any tests yet, and they should be interesting.

Hi!

The Salona 35 has basically the hull from the 34. A new designed cabin top, a new keel, a new interior, two well set-up and many improvements some of them that I asked to be designed for "my" 38, like the bowsprit and the instrument pods.

A better boat I bet, even if the 34 was already a great boat. Regarding a review, as I have not sailed it, I will have to wait for the reviews from those that have sailed it and has I have nor been in Dusseldorf this year, I cannot judge also those interior modifications, except by the photos and that is not the better way. I will have a better idea when they post the 360 photo on their site.

For someone that is really interested in the boat nothing like charter the 34 for a week, have a factory tour and a visit to the 35 interior and maybe a short test sail.

The 34 tests on Video: They are in Italian but they all say very well about the boat:

Re: Interesting Sailboats

New edition of the "Ocean Racing Magazine"

OCEAN RACING : 100% SAILING, 100% RACING !

It is for free (by now). You have just to log in.

This is an English version of "Course au Large". to have the French version you have to pay and a lot. I guess that most French don't read very well English

I guess they are trying to get English readers to make it as expensive as the French version....well while it is free it is a shame to miss it. Great photos there and great articles.

Vor 70

Difficult tactic decisions ahead. They are going to get upwind sailing. Hard to say who had the advantage. I will bet on the group that is more to the East. We will see.

Soto 40

I have posted recently about the 37ft Solaris designed by Soto Acerbal and I said that it was a great cruiser. I know that many in this forum will consider that an extreme racer. Let me show you a racer by Soto Acerbal, the Soto 40, weighting almost half and having a not very different ballast with a similar beam. I have already talked about the boat and show some movies but these images are beautiful, from PalmaVela 2012, Mallorca, Balearic Islands

Trimarans are expensive but this one is not as expensive as the Dragonfly 35 even if its interior is simpler and less well finished.

For about 200 000 some lucky guy will have a boat that has cruising capacity, an incredible sailing performance and a boat that can fold in two ways: For transporting in a trailer and laterally (see the movie) to fit in the marina on a monohull place.
And it is also a looker. I will be waiting for a video of this one sailing, I bet it will be interesting.
