Re: Interesting Sailboats

Hi bjung,
No, I have the fixed keel with 2,15 m draft on the Opium. I do not know if the swing keel can be partially deploided but I would be surprised if it did not.

Regards, Anders

Not so much frost at the moment up here. We had no rain for 5 weeks in Danish waters, 20-25 degrees C (max 32 C), sun and 22-23 C in water. Good for the boating industry I hope.

Regards,
Anders

Americas'cup : Oracle Team USA under suspicion

Does anybody knows more about this?

"Coarse misconduct? For violation of the class rules are retroactive to the team four regattas. Closures are possible.

Especially now that the America's Cup defender Oracle Team USA needs every good headline because of the disappointing elimination series, this is like a hammer:

The International America's Cup Jury initiated an investigation for gross misconduct (Rule 69) against Team. This can result in the blocking of individual athletes or entire teams to be.

Apparently corresponded to the two AC 45 catamarans, which started the team during the AC World Series, not the class rules. It is a unit class. In the preparations of the boats for the Youth America's Cup, the first on September starts, it has been discovered that in addition 2.5 kg weight were added to the front bracket means in both vessels. Whether this would have an effect on the speed boat or even influence the final result, although it is not clear yet if it were a clear and deliberate so serious violation of the class rules.

The American team responded immediately. Team boss Russell Coutts withdrew both boats of the past four races, these are re-evaluated. In a statement, it says: "The changes were made by a small group of sailors over a year ago, the team management and the skipper were not informed, and it was not adhered to internal procedures.."

....
The investigation for gross misconduct is still ongoing."

You can also read a lot about the whole thing at Sailing Anarchy as well.

Probably just a bone-headed mistake on Oracle Racing's part, as opposed to actual "cheating", but still doesn't reflect well on the organization.

Now that Artemis has been summarily dispatched to oblivion by Luna Rossa, we can sleep through the next two cycles and fast forward to the Americas Cup returning to New Zealand and, hopefully, the restoration of sanity to the whole business.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Another input from this (fantastic) summer was sailing through Lilla Bält in Denmark, in wind that was picking up. We knew we had a long reach to sail after passing through this narrow sound between mainland Denmark and Fyn so despite having too much sail up for the beat we decided to hang on to it and play the traweller a lot. Wind was gusting from 10-25 knots. Then a Dragonfly appeared out from the marina near their factory. I think it was the new 32 but it could have been the 28. It was carrying full carbon like sails with a massive fat head.

It was rather astonishing to see how well she just transformed the gusts to speed and both reaching and beating the boat seemed fully in control. In another thread here about multi hulls there was a long discussions about daggeboards or not and that multihulls (cats) are very sensitive to gusty conditions. The Dragonfly seemed not to be, at least.

Regards,
Anders
