Not a great fan of that one. Maybe you can skip fancy restaurants and find someone that really now how to prepare the fish. They eat it always with a white sauce and the thing tastes always the same. For eating fish I never found better than Portugal.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Good post on the J/122
Typical Johnstone design being narrow and light. Well put together with all the go fast systems on board. Sails well to her numbers and usually write up there with the other fast 40's. I'm talking King 40 and more. Scarce boat to find used, when you do they are dear around $350K loaded.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paulo,

No the eateries in Brittany are not so good, maybe too close to the other side of the channel. But there is a little fish monger in Treguier with a beautiful display one of art and fresh seafood to die for. Every time I'm town I go to see him just to look at his display and now we will do are own cooking. Did I ever tell you I'm the master of North Atlantic sea food? No sauces, no foolishness, just what is needed to give the flavor of the beauty of the soul, maybe sole.

On a kinder note they do have a good Pizza place in Treguier, fresh veggies and other toppings, very nice thin crust and good cheap house wine just right for a long lunch.

I like the wine, don't know about the fish but I take your word on it. Regarding the fish here the best and bigger ones are very expensive and even so they send it by air mail in special containers for the best restaurants in all world, from New York to Japan. I found that some years ago and I was really dumb struck. What kind of world is this where there are people dying by lack of food while others special deliver fish by airplane across the world to satisfy the taste of some guys?

Rm 1360

I have talked a lot here about the RM 1260, European Family boat of the year but very little about their new model, the RM 1360.

Like the 1260 the RM 1360 is heavily based on a previous model (1350) and is just a better, more sophisticated and faster voyage boat.

This kind of voyage boats based on solo ocean racers hulls have been developed by several NA, the same that designed and developed Open 60's and class 40's for solo sailing and among them Marc Lombard. It is him that designs the RM line since the start many years ago.

The advantages of this type of hull shapes relates with an increased stability and a much easier sailing in what regards downwind sailing. The boat can safely go faster on autopilot with a lot of sail and the roll is very diminished. It sails with less heel and provides a very stable platform. These characteristics make the boat very adapted to sail and voyage in the trade winds with a very reduced or solo crew.

These hull shapes were developed to make possible solo sailors to master very powerful boats. More narrow hull shapes forms in absolute terms are faster but impossible to be mastered by a solo or short crew when sailed fast (while racing). It is understandable why they are used on fast cruising and voyage boats that are designed to be easy and sailed by a short relatively inexperienced crew.

This boat can have a twin keel with a draft of 1.95m and a mono keel with a draft of 2.45m. The performances are not very different and in some points of sail are just close to 0 so in fact the Twinn keel is much more appropriated for cruising.

This boat will be fast, light, with a big loading capacity and plenty of interior space and storage. The tankage is also big. It can be steered from the inside with the help of a joystick. It will also have, like the other RM, a big stability, lots of power and a good reserve stability.

The RM can have a cutter configuration for easy management of sails.

The boat can be beached (twin keel) for repairs or clean the hull and is made of marine plywood and epoxy, as all RM. It is easy to repair everywhere.

There are no perfect boats for anything but this one will satisfy the needs of many long range cruisers, including some that like to sail fast.

A very nice boat in my opinion, probably the best looking in RM line.

Artemis AC 79 accident

Contrary to what It was said (and I had quoted) it looks that the boat did not break up, at least before a nose dive, a similar accident of the one I have posted some posts before with an IMOCA trimaran.

Some movies showing a completely destroyed boat (it was brand new one) and the explanations about the sad accident itself:

Here is the same. Chile is the second salmon producer behind Norway.

J 105

We have talked a lot about Jboats lately, the American boats that the European like more than the Americans

Here you have a great footage of a J 105 very well sailed with a short crew:
