New Boat: Soto 30

I have already talked about it and the first one is on the water, the small brother of the Soto 40, the Soto 30.

For being a great boat it only needs to be about as good as the bigger one. It looks really great and Soto Acerbal is becoming a heavy height NA even more so now that he moved to Europe, Barcelona, more precisely. Lots of commands and many nice designs have already been made by him and not only racers like this one.

Pacer 27

Taking about great little boats, the Pacer 27 is one of them. I have alreadt talked several times about the South African Pacer yachts and the last time to say that the Pacer 310 will be made under license in Europe.

One of their greatest success is the Pacer 27 a little offshore boat that can piss a lot of bigger boats, not to mention the sailors aboard them.

The Pacer 27 Sport is a new generation trailer sailer which offers very exciting sailing and top speeds at a fraction of the cost of boats twice it's size.

Designed by Alex Simonis and Maarten Voogd.. our brief was for a boat which would perform offshore the South African coast (Cape of Storms), and still be great fun on inland waters. It was also important to have a small interior capable of sleeping 2 adults and 2 children for those family units where dad races hard, but still wants to be able to treat the kids to a night or two on the boat.

To make the boat into a One Design class which enjoys good fleets no matter where the sailing venue may be, it was important to ensure that it could be easily slipped and towed. The retractable keel and removable cassette type rudder means that the boat sits low on it's trailer, tucking in behind the tow vehicle, and it's low mass means it can be easily pulled by a 2.5ltr car or light van.

The rig is easily dropped or raised, with just 3 persons, and will take about 40 minutes from arriving at the waters edge to launching the boat.
..
Top SOG measured to date was during Table Bay Week 2006, with North Sails' Rick Nankin driving the boat, at 24.5knots. Exciting? We think so. Rick's comments were that the boat was totally in control at the time -and we have had similar comments from owners, such as Antony Wentworth from Falsa Bay Yacht Club where they enjoyed a fantastic run from Cape Point back to the club, with the bag up and maintaining speeds in the top teens whilst 100% in control in a bumpy sea.

..So, if you are looking for a reasonably substantial boat, one which can be towed far easier than most, and one which will bring a smile to your face every time you jump on board, then this is the boat for you. Naturally, you will also WIN RACES.

Dragonfly 28 sport

Hamnen had already tested the boat but now they have made a more complet test...and the boat was sailed on the limit, heeled like a monohull...but at another speed. Nice

Very well played by Puma, nobody will be able to take its second consecutive victory.

They will have very weak winds near Miami but the two other boats on the front of the race have chosen the same option and that seems a mistake to me.

I guess that Groupama and Abu Dhabi have chosen the faster road going East of the Bahamas but Groupama has 125Nm of retard and that’s too much, probably they will not even be able to catch any of the three leading boats….but they are going to win miles on the leading trio or at least is what I think

I was right about Groupama (won 40Nm over the night) and maybe they can catch Telefonica but wrong about Puma. I don't know how Camper have managed to recover so many miles on Puma, going the same course but with a difference of only 13K to Puma and 450Nm to go, with a difficult last hundred miles (very weak and unstable wind) everything is at stake.

We have a hot race again

Puma versus Camper and Telefonica versus Groupama. who would say that Groupama could be back on the race? They have a disadvantage over Telefonica on weak winds but as this is a tactical race from now on we can count on Cammas to put a good fight.

Don't miss the next 24 hours, it is going to be interesting

I hope you can have a finish like the one on the last leg...and may the best win

Meanwhile Camper is still recovering miles. More 3 since the last post. They are now at only 8Nm but Puma has already show us that is capable of a great finale.

Regards

Paulo

Transat Ag2r

This one is also very competitive:

Transat AG2R La Mondiale 2012

With Morvan leading, as usual, but lots of boats very close.

Unfortunately the wind has not been strong and the images are nothing special.

Instead have a look at these interesting images: Same boats other race (solo), with all coming to port almost at the same time.
