Vor 70

Puma on light winds seems to be unbeatable. For the first time he has a significant distance to Telefonica (30Nm). Groupama seems incapable to make the same speed in these conditions.

They will have weak and some medium winds till Miami and I think that Puma is going to have its second consecutive victory in a row while Telefonica will consolidate the race leadership. Pity Groupama...we needed some more competition for the race leadership .

Salona 35

I have been trying to make a post on the Salona 35 but they have not have post any photos of the 35 sailing, not any news about the new 60. Their site seems to be a bit abandoned…are they having troubles?

Related with other subject I exchanged some emails with Nenad, the sales director and he told me their problem: They have 40 boats to deliver and have not time for nothing except making boats.

Well since they have no time to put decent photos of the boat sailing, let's see that new interior. It seems it can come in two versions, with white panels or with plain wood.


The one with white panels:











And for the plain wood interior....we have to look at a Finnish site. They have a 360ļ photo...while the shipyard has not yet one


Salona 35 tarjoaa vauhdikasta matkapurjehdusta



For more information he can hear what Nenad has to say about the boat:

Nice. As all really fast boats it does not appear to go fast....till you look at the wake or at the motorboat

It appears the wind is not strong but I cannot make a reading on those instruments. What was the wind force on that test sail?

Regards

Paulo

JPK 38 - new boat

And what a boat. I want one



The boat looks a lot better than in the drawings with very fine entries more rocker than you would expect on a downwind boat. I has one of those hulls that you look at it and say uau!!! that has to work, upwind and downwind. Even the considerable beam is not evident when you look the hull up in the air.

I really have the best impression about JPK, a former solo racer than many years ago started to make boats, first its own, then for friends and later as a boat builder. I bet this boat is going to increase the size of its shipyard that builds more for racers than for cruisers. I guess this are going to change.

The boat is very light (5000kg) it has a big ballast for that kind of hi-tech keel with a big draft (2.70m). That and the hull shape will make a boat with a huge stability, directional and in what regards RM. An easy and fast boat for solo or short crew sailing. A boat that would be a pleasure to cruise having fun while sailing. The boat has a version with a swing keel: a big draft that will be reduced to 1.30m for anchoring.



I have not seen yet the interior work but JPK makes very good solid interiors with an agreeable cozy feeling. I hope this one will not be an exception.

Guys, I am really impressed. This one will come straight to the short list of my favorite boats and contrary to the Xp 38 this one is "almost" affordable. I guess it will cost 20 or 30 000€ more than a Salona 38.

500Nm in 24 hours, a record for short crew sailing.

and some great images of a two year old unbeaten sailing record for a two men crew. On an Open 60 off course




edit: After all it is not the record anymore. It was beaten last year by Virbac Paprec another Open 60 with Jean Pierre Dick/Loick Peyron as Crew: distance: 506.333 nm; average speed: 21.1 kts in the Barcelona World Race 2010-11
