For the ones that are imagining what the hell is the EYOTY, it is this:

MOVIE:

EYOTY: Europas Siegeryachten 2012/13 - Yacht TV - Segel Videos von Europas größtem Yacht Magazin

Regarding the Seascape 27 I heard that the boat performed normally on the tests but that is a category that should be subdivided: they call it special boats and in special boats enters everything that is not a cruising sailboat: Day sailers, race boats, week-end cruisers. It does not make sense. How can a race boat like the J70 that won that category this year, be compared with a fast week end cruiser like the Seascape 27?

That was a very confusing category with two boats nominated missing the rendez vous (A27 and Code 0) and one nominated in substitution winning the contest (J70). Besides all boats in the contest being great sailing boats even in what regards winning what they said makes not a lot of sense to me:

"Each category featured some exciting matches. The B/One and the J/70 were locked in a tight battle, with the Farr-designed Bavaria being mostly on the winning end in light air under 8 knots. But on tight reaches when the breeze was up, the J/70 pulled even or ahead."

For what they say it was a close match. Being the Bavaria One a boat that costs 1/3 less than the J70 how it can be explained that the trophy was delivered to the J70?

Anyway the J70 is a great boat but it seems to me that this year in that category they were all great boats, including the two that did not make it to the tests, one because the boat was damaged in a crane accident the other because Archambault was in deep financial trouble (not anymore).

"The other candidates proved that in the past months and years designers and builders have managed to develop boats with a high degree of refinement."

Landmark 43

Some posts back we revisited the Landmark 43. Let's see some movies of the boat sailing beginning with a very curious one where the boat is finishing a race side by side with another Mills design, a King 40:

Ovni 52

The new OVNI 52 is on the water. The boat is impressive and was already sail tested by Voile Magazine. They were impressed. This boat is the first of a new line called Evolution that was really needed face to the more modern aluminium boats produced by Boreal and Allures. Well, not anymore, this boat is really a breakthrough in what regards centerboarders design. I am very curious in what regards sailors acceptance.

They don't say the ballast and the centerboard has really a small surface, kind of a dagger boar really, but a deep one. The design is from Marc Lombard and is strongly influenced by the hulls of solo racers. It looks like a big and more elegant Figaro II.

I can't wait till I have reliable reports about sail performance of this boat, specially upwind. I have no doubt that Marc Lombard knows what is doing but it is absolutely amazing that such a small area centerboard can be enough to track the boat upwind. The idea that you need a keel with a considerable lateral area is obviously wrong. On the Open60 when the keels are canted they track upwind also on a very narrow daggerboard. Marc Lombard is using his vast experience designing that kind of boats and the hydrodynamic knowledge that he acquired to use it on another type of boats.

This is one of the most innovative boats around, it looks like a Cigale with a centerboard/dagger board.

The interior seems to be great and the big dingy garage is one of the most interesting features. Many boats of this size can carry a small dingy, the Bavaria 56, only if it is folded. This one can carry a BIG dingy fully inflated.

Poetry in images: Onne van der Wal

We all like great boat movies and many are amateur ones. The best are made by professionals, many unknown but some stand out and are well known. Among those there are poets that make poetry with images and one of them is Onne van der Wal. Have a look:






To see the second movie click on " Grenada Sailing Festival Workboat Regatta 2012 on Vimeo" It worth it.

I agree about the odd class the Seascape was in, but in the end three pretty similar boats were compared. I would have also thought, that the Seascape could give both the J/70 and the B/one a run for their money. But no mention of performance!?!? B/one and J head to head, where was the Seascape?

Yes you are right even if they were comparing two racers with a fast day sailer, weekend cruiser. I find that odd too, but that was not a comparative test.

Anyway it would be nice to have global impressions about all the boats and the way they have performed but they don't do that and that's a pity.

However in what regards speed:

"First race done! We where inited to Skagen Invitational which is a two legg race. The first leg is the same as the Helly Hansen Skagen Race. That was 120 nm with upwind! We managed to keep both a Archambeau 31 and a First 34.7 behind us on the water but with a ranking similar to most 40ft. boats we ended 20 in the shorthanded class. Among the 20 boats in the Invitational race we placed 2nd behind the class 40 "Solo".

But on Saturday we had the second race from Skagen in Denmark to Smøgen in Sweden whitch was a steep downwind leg! And that was perfect! Finished ahead of both X-41, XP 38 and a First 50 on the water!

The positions was then changed and we finished 1st both on he second legg and overall!

A good start of the season for us in a race were we didn't know the boat and tested all sails and different combination!

But it's great fun to pass a First 50 when they are working their ass off to manage the genaker and we are running by autopilot and watch them work!"

The Nordic guys were impressed and there were only two as crew:

http://www.seilmagasinet.no/id/40228



Skagen race is a big Nordic race with fast boats and good crews.






I bet this transom and particularly the "see you!" is a bit provocative when letting behind a fast 50fter

On this year the conditions were tough for a small amd light boat like the Seascape 27, but it was precisely on these conditions ( the movie is from the downwind leg) that the boat beat the crap out of much bigger boats.






Some great movies of the last edition edition:

Jpk 38

..
Sorry, I had given you a wrong information, or at least it is now a wrong one. JPK has abandoned the twin keel concept on the 38. They will have it with a monoquille and with a swing keel. They had actualized the information in their site, with more pictures too.

They have very good information about the boat but only in French. I will offer you a translation:

JPK FAST CRUISER 38: THE ..JPK 38 REUNITES THE CUMULATIVE EXPERIENCE OF OFFSHORE RACING, THE CRUISING EXPERIENCE AND A DESIRE TO TRAVEL COMBINING THE PLEASURE OF SAILING THE QUALITY OF LIFE ON BOARD AND SAFETY.

Many boats are on the market but none of them really combines all these qualities:

There are boats with a good cruising interior but with a hull limited by weight resulting in a diminished sailing pleasure and an offshore seaworthiness not entirely convincing. And also boats very light, with a minimalist interior and a open type of hull but not tolerant about the overload inherent to offshore cruising. They have very flat hull sections that will be very uncomfortable going close to the wind in a seaway.

The JPK 38 FC measure 11.38 meters to 4 meters wide. It is an ideal size in our opinion in what regards simple management of navigation and boat maintenance.

The sail areas will generate little effort and are easily to handle. They are complemented with a gennaker or a code 0 on a retractable carbon bowsprit, allowing an uncluttered front deck. Bow thruster and electric winch remain unnecessary comfort options.

Jacques Valer is one of the few architects that know how to draw sailboats of different types, but always with an incidence on the seaworthiness. Some examples are the 960 offshore racer, the Class 40, the JPK 1010( IRC championin 2010 in all classes) and the 998 Day Sailor, these hulls are known to be models of balance and versatility.

We considered having this boat made on the hull mold of JPK Class 40 , it would be easier and less expensive but Jacques Valer immediately felt that it was impossible to achieve a true "good cruise sailingboat" by exploiting the mold of a boat designed to weigh 4500 kg 
 when in Version cruise we would need 5500 kg.

The JPK 38 FC is a synthesis between an "open" planing boat and a "displacement" boat. A beamy and powerful hull but with the frontal sections deep enough for a good wave passage and a deeper central hull, accepting the overload needed for voyaging.

The result is a stable boat capable of sailing at a very high average speed in all sea conditions. The super careful construction in infused sandwich allows a large hull volume for a light displacement of 5 T, despite a substantial ballast of 1900 kg in the deep keel version.

The low weight is the key factor on all the architecture of the boat is based. The objective is to obtain a sufficiently rigid and fast hull to quickly exceed hull speed without dragging water even under load. A boat that will be fast upwind, downwind and in light winds.

The 10 years of experience building our six models, often "race" oriented, allows us to be very precise and safe in what regards quality of construction and solidity.
.
The hull, deck and interior structure elements are made like those of a Class 40 racing boat with a 20 mm sandwich balsa and light Airex Quadriaxial with fabrics and cloths UD (unidirectonnelles) in all areas of effort. Vnylester resins and infusion are used as building technique.

.....

As an option the boat can have a swinging keel;

Considered too penalizing in terms of weight (total weight plus 200 kg) and drag the twin keel version was finally abandoned in favor of a swinging keel.

For the ones that want the best in what regards sheltered anchorage and dream to voyage to the "end of the world" we have developed our swinging keel that allows to vary the draft from 2.70 m to 1.35 m.


The keel foil is made of an infused composite web and the bulbed part is lead. It provides a RM similar to the one of the fixed keel with an estimate overall weight slightly lower. The necessary interior arrangements regarding the lifting mechanism don't interfere with the habitability.

In summary, the JPK 38 FC is a true synthesis of a modern voyage boat: Convivial, easy, seaworthy and very fast.

This has been a sad year for the ones that love the sum. It is raining again, it's cold and the Summer is only one month away. where is Spring?

Some very beautiful images by a great filmmaker to forget about the weather.
