Bavaria Vision 46

The first real boat test is available on line. It is from Yacht magazine and you have to pay 2€ for it but if you are really interested in a boat this and size and type I believe it will be money well spent. Their tests are quite good. For the little the say about the boat test one line I would say that my suspicion that this boat is different from the other Bavarias is confirmed.

They say:

A Cruising yacht with wow factor

No longer just cheap. Bavaria wants with the vision 46 to satisfy more demanding owners.


I will post some images of that test but I will try to post the ones that seem more relevant to me in what regards that difference, besides being a good looking boat and probably a good sailing boat.

We can see that contrary to what happens to some other boats the space for the Welshman is substantial, that the pods are not central and that they incorporate strong holding bars. It has a huge and neat space for storage and also a neat running rigging. We had also saw previously that the boat had a large galley and a big head.

This boat would be a very good boat for living aboard and if the sail performance is as good as I think it is it will be a slightly different approach regarding other mass production boat builders. The one that it will came close it will be the Jeanneau but this one seems more pointed to a more intensive use compared with the Jeanneau.

Open 60

While we wait for the in-port race in Lisbon we can have a look at the Open 60 race. They leaved Lisbon some days before the VOR 70 arrived turned around Ašores, turned around the Fastnet rock and are almost arriving to the leg finish at La Rochelle.

Europa Warm'Up

This is the last race, a kind of check up before the Vendee globe. We can take some conclusions: First that is worrying the level of breakage in boats that will have to go around the world non stop: Virbac Paprec after having won the first leg did retired on the beginning of the second leg due to an issue with the hydraulics which drive the keel rams. Groupe Bel dismasted near Ašores.

In 7 boats 2 retired in such a short race. That is a worrying sign for the next Vendee.

Regarding the positive signs he can see that Franšois Gabart, on Macif and Vicent Riou are in great form, as Jean Pierre Dick, at least till he had to retire. The performance of these guys and their boats is very close and they will be favorites on the next BIG race.

Hi Paulo, yes that is a nicer video! So I guess you also saw the video from Orn÷ Runt, last weekends race?


I couldn┤t find time to join my brother on this race, which was sad! They came in on 40th place in total, but won the Arcona 340 class. You can see his Arcona 340 in this film at 3:40 (now that┤s fun, a 340 at 3:40). Fastest keelboat I believe was, not surprisingly, the TP52 3h06m38s. Winner on corrected time (SRS) was a Finngulf 33 (3h55m21s), as usual! Fastest boat around the island was a Seacart 30 (2h34m24s). I┤m always a bit amazed at how these small multihulls can be quicker than a big and extreme (and probably very expensive) TP52 with a huge crew!

The Kiwi 40FC is indeed a cool boat, Farr yacht design can create fast Class 40s as well! When will the cruising version be available?

Aren┤t the newest class 40s quite similar though? One might think the difference in performance has more to do with the skipper than the boat, or what do you think Paulo?

Yes, but I left it for you to post. I have to say that there are at this time of the year plenty of races around, but the Swedish make the best movies

//Mr W
When a top designer makes top racing boats to top crews, specially for ocean racing they maximize the boat performance to a given set of performances. If the crews are of equal value if the boat finds more time with the sailing conditions for which its performance are maximized it will win. However these are small differences and the crews has to be of equal value.

Riechers had won the race with a boat that is maximized for downwind "normal" transat conditions and I think that it has to do with having a very good boat but mostly with the fact that he is one of the best 40class skippers. The NZ designed boat with two rookies come second not only because it was well sailed (as most of the other boats) but because it is an overall better boat on other conditions than downwind with medium or strong wind.

As I said if those where the prevalent conditions I believe Mare and Riechers would still be the winners but on the second post we would not have the NZ designed boat but one of the French boats.

Mare is a beautiful boat and I would like to see a cruising version of that one. The boat even had a great view to the outside from the boat interior, one that permits you to keep an eye on what is happening around when you are on the interior.

That is a Sam Manuard boat. I have a big admiration for this guy. He is an ocean racer that also designs boats. He is good on both counts but specially designing boats. He is a passionate guy.

Regarding your boat and regarding the boats you are considering I think you would not lose your time having a conversation with him regarding your boat and your needs. Among the big French racing community they can get you a nice hull, mast and rigging not for much (considering weight, performance and quality) and they can point you to someone that can get you a practical interior at affordable price. I bet he would understand exactly what you want and would be able to design it.

The Reynolds cat's certainly deserve a post. Randy Reynolds has the bad luck of being born in the USA in time sailing and particularly sailing performance boats have a low demand. If he was an European certainly its boats would be in production and his name would be a familiar one.

The boat posted above, the Reynolds 21 was an incredibly advanced boat for its time. 50 of these boats were produced between 1978 and 1979, more than 30 years ago. Reynolds designed that boat when he was 22 years old

After some years dedicated to windsurfing, in 2000 he tried to produce an innovative and fast 28ft trimaran but other than the prototype (that was able to do 19k speed in 22k wind) no other boat was made. Then he made the R33. Some boats where made, the boat is very difficult to beat racing but the production still remained almost confidential.



Now he has a new 44 cat design with real cruising potential, a bit like a Pogo is to the other cruising monohulls, I mean regarding other cats. This one will be an easy 20k boats. I hope some of you guys can see the potential of the boat not only for racing but also for cruising. I guess Reynolds deserve that.

Hunter 22 and Astus 20.2

Two new boats tested by Yacht magazine and with a test movie to have a look:

The Hunter 22, an inexpensive daysaler from Hunter, a boat that sails well and that has in price its main advantage:




Movie:

And the Astus 20.2, the little sister of the Astus 22. I like a lot the Astus 22 and the idea of a coastal fast and inexpensive foldable camping boat. The 20.2 has the same program but it is even less expensive (20.480 €).

They are planning a bigger boat for next year, one that would be more than a camping boat. It sure looks good
