Classic boats:

Another beauty saved. 16m Old Ruby (62 years old) re-baptized as "Taifun" is now a school boat for the cadets of the German federal navy. Lucky guys

Nice boats but a bit dated especially the Route 66.

Regarding Nordic boats that are one that I love and never posted about, the Landmark 43, a Mark Mills design and a beautiful boat:













http://www.landmarkyachts.com/Custom..._43_202_DP.pdf

http://www.landmarkyachts.com/Custom..._43_202_SP.pdf


Mills says about the boat:

Mills Design Ltd. is very proud of the Landmark 43, our latest high performance IRC Cruiser/Racer. This design builds on our unparalleled experience with winning dual purpose IRC designs both custom and production to offer true performance cruising comfort and outstanding results on the racecourse.

This design reflects not only our devotion to high performance design, but also our aesthetic drive to create dynamic high performance yachts of stunning visual appeal.

The hull has been drawn to offer the highest performance across the widest set of conditions compatible with production yacht weight controls and suitable interior volume for a performance Cruiser/Racer….

The waterline length has been set to extract some benefit from IRC’s treatment of overhangs, particularly aft, without going to the extremes of a custom racing design. This ensures a good balance of performance with positive rating attributes. The other performance factors comprise a fine entry for performance in a chop, a narrow waterline beam for reduced frontal drag, and a stern section with a flat run but not overly beamy sections to provide controllable speed offwind without an undue rise in wetted surface area for consistent pace in lighter conditions.

To achieve our weight targets the hull, deck, and interior construction are foam cored epoxy/E-glass laminates. This makes use of the higher materials properties of an epoxy laminate including greater stiffness and resistance to blistering…

The loads generated by the deep keel and bulb however are best met with an anodized alloy keel grid which offers the stiffest solution to static loadings as well as the best force distribution for unusual dynamic loadings such as a grounding…

The bright interior with 3 double cabins and large galley and nav station trimmed with wood is as comfortable for an extended family cruise as it is for racing around the buoys. The spacious head with access both from the forward cabin and the saloon ensures complete amenity.

Attention has been paid to light and ventilation below with careful hatch and portlight placement. In addition to the main hatch and foredeck hatch there are twin small hatches over the head and forward cabin spaces, and a square hatch in the coachroof centrally over the saloon. In the aft cabins there are opening portlights in the cockpit seat fronts.

Sail handling has been arranged with a shorthanded sailing in mind, with all halyards leading back to the cockpit and features items such as the batten slider system on the main and the roller furling jib which have been included in a manner that has minimal impact on the racing performance of the design while improving the shorthanded utility of the sail plan.
...
This design represents the next generation of IRC Performance Cruiser Racers, and reflects our commitment to creating beautiful, fast, and reliable performance yachts.

Beneteau: Sense line versus Oceanis lne

Yachting world has tested the Sense 55, the Oceanis 41, 45 qnd 48.




What they say in this movie confirms what French testers for French magazines had said, the Oceanis, particulatly the Finot/conq designed boats, sail better but the Vista 55 sails pretty well, without much heeling.

After reading the full test on the magazine I will post more about it, if they say more

Solo non stop circumnavigation on a 40ft mass production boat:

Tomasz Cichocky has finished without problems in 312 days its solo non-stop circumnavigation on a 40ft Delphia...and Jesus... not a word in English (except on the Delphia site) about that, not an English video on you tube...OK, I know the guy is Polish as the boat, but that is a pretty unusual feet taking in consideration that the “Captain” is an old salt, more than 50 year’s old.

Well, it is done, sailnet is the first to report that in English. I wish to send congratulations to the Captain. Really that is a big seamanship feat, not only in what regards seaworthiness but also in what regards boat autonomy. It had been done before but very few have managed to do that on a mass production 40ft boat.

Chapeau to the Polish Captain and to Delphia.

What a great race !!!


One thing makes me wonder: Why Abu Dhabi has not yet won a leg and has bad results on Ocean sailing? Groupama obviously has a problem sailing with weak winds and is the better boat with strong winds, but Abu Dhabi seems to sail well with strong and weak winds and as already won several in port races, so why are they not competitive offshore?

WE HAVE A RACE!!! with Telefónica losing big time to Groupama and Camper and Puma winning over Telefónica and staying very close.

This race looks like it is going to be exciting till the finish
