Total time for us was just over 11 hours during 4 days.

Yes, they said on the boat tests that the Dufour 36 performance was fast...well, I have my doubts. I think that a top specs Salona 35 will be way faster.

The important is having fun and it seems you have a lof of it

I personally prefer racing and i am considering a 35-40 cruiser racer but decision is not foreseen to be easy
Welcome on board

What boats are you considering and what type of racing are you considering: Around the cans, offshore, with crew, duo or solo?

Indeed we did, racing is (almost!) always fun! The boat suits my brothers needs very well I think, I on the other hand find it difficult to settle with displacement speed...

I know you have posted about the SIG45, here is a new video:

Now that looks sweet!

Sig 45 and Vor 70

Great boat the Sig 45. Thanks for posting

Another great movie, this one from the VOR, showing that rough time I had already talked about:

I race around the cans and usually one extended regatta every year. We sail with crew but a short handed boat is really tempting since it can save you from considerable logistics issue. Last year i crewed on a SWAN 45 which had 12 crew, and it was a pain in the*** for the skipper to coordinate.
I like elan 350, however i did not understand the rational behind the placement of the mainsheet track.

Halberg Rassy 412: First images

The boat does not look as modern as the 372 and that transom that looked badly designed to me, is really badly designed.

The 372 has the same problem but not so visible. Strangely the 412 looks more massif on the transom and on the last 1/3 of the boat. It’s odd because a longer hull should contribute to make it a slimmer boat and that is not the case. Take a look, first the 412 then the 372:




I am not talking about the hull that seems to be modern and efficient. The boat uses high tech sails and it looks to sail well. It seems that HR continues its progression towards faster and better sailing boats.

Looking from forward the boat looks just great:



But the guy at the wheel looks like it is in the bath room, you know doing what.



The wheel is pulled back on the cockpit to provide a big space forward and that would not be a problem if the cockpit was open, but like it is the space for the wheelsman is too small:





The profile is typically Halberg-rassy, no ugly but a bit like if they wanted a aft cockpit boat to look like a center cockpit boat.





I guess the inconditional traditional fans will be satisfied and the ones that hoped for a more modern boat a bit disapointed. Even so it is a good looking boat except when you look it from the back.

What's wrong with it? It seems perfect for solo or duo racing:







A rigging set-up that is perfect for solo sailing would not be good for crew racing and vice-versa.

Some top boats can rig it for the type of racing you want to do. For instance, the A35 that is as good solo racing as crew racing....with different rigging set-ups. The same with the JPK 10.10.

Vor 70

Great racing by Groupama, Telefonica and also by Abu Dhabi that is following Telefonica. It seems to me that Telefonica and Abu Dhabi, more to the North are in a better position. They all have to turn North the question would be when.

Only Camper has given up to follow Groupama lead and had already turned North. Don't think it is going to work.

Next 12 hours will be very interesting with several options, more to the South, more to the North, before going North. It has not only to do with wind pressure but also with wind direction. I hope we will see different strategies. Puma would be the one that would gain more in not follow Groupama since it as already lost 41 miles and needs to recover them.
