The big and the small racing boats.



Regarding the smallest offshore racers, let me remember that the next moni Transat will be raced on 13/10/2013 and limited to 84 racers. They have more than 100 pre inscriptions. The 100th is from an American, Jeffrey MacFarlane with a proto. They have 18 different nationalities. It seems that finally an offshore solo race becomes truly international and not a French affair.

Welcome. It seems you are new around these parts otherwise you would already have heard about David Raison's Mini. Yes it has a funny bow but I guess that you are going to see more soon

David Raison won with that boat the last mini big transat, from France to Brazil beating the crap of 90 other mini race boats, at an average record speed of 7.53K.

David Raison besides a racer is a NA and after the race made and even more funny boat, an aluminium pocket cruiser (22ft). The boat is fast, tough, with a lot of interior space....and strange

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Thank you for the welcome, even if it was sarcastic. I haven't really kept up with the news when it comes to the Mini Transat, so thanks for the links and explanation

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Hi One,

I don't think there was no sarcastic comment there. Paulo's English is a lot better than our Portugese. See! But sometimes it may come across that way to us N. Americans.

Hell Paulo, that little revolution is an ocean bob sled. Another Russian Sputnik,
How much do they cost? If I was 22 I'd buy one just to sail once across the Atlantic one time then sell it. I'd bring 25 bottles of cheap wine, 5 ounces of herb and have a ball. What a wonderful little boat, far better than any 22 footer from the old days. Did you see how they did the boiler work? That was an amazing process. I wish I spoke French I would have loved to hear what the NA was saying. Heck if I was not doing something different and I had not much to do I would buy one of those little space ships and sail her to the BVI's and I'm now over 60.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Hi One,

That must explain it then.

What do you think of these mini's? Hard to get use to looking at them but they really work.

I think it's absolutely great! I do think something like that prammy thing is not for me, as I like going to weather. The designer even admitted to "banging" slowing him down. I think there'd be a lot slamming into waves with that bow. But it wasn't really designed for that. Some of the other minis are more up my ally.
