You have on the North of Europe a famous Salona 37 (same hull) that have been racing at top level with great results. You will not be able to do that with a Solaris 37.

Have a looK:

?Feelgood? Salona 37 new ORCi European Champion! - Salona Yachts

Salona 37 won silver medal at ORC World Championship - Salona Yachts

and one big one more, just 4 days ago:

Öresund regatta: Team Feelgood Martin Nilsson i Salona 37 vinner Tjörn Runt



That's the boat:

There are more Salonas 37 competing at top level and winning, between them Lenco. Not a chance there for the Solaris...Yes I know, it was not made to compete at top level and it is only a relatively fast boat, not a fast boat...what can I say...I like fast boats.

Not saying that the Saloris 37 is not a great boat with a luxurious interior but in what regards myself I would prefer to buy a top Salona 38 and a brand new roadster for the price I would pay for the Solaris, or just spend the difference eating lobster and drinking champagne for the rest of my cruising days...but I am not a rich guy.

Paulo
Yes, I know the guy driving the feelgood Salona 37 pretty well. Former neighbour and same sailing club. I saw him winning the big Tjörn Runt competition you posted a video about and mentioned, last weekend.

Good looks comes at a price is an often used phrase. I can shurely say that having seen the Solaris but not yet the price list, I can imagine some high amounts in it.

Regards,
Anders

A movie and boat test by Yacht.de:

Here we can not only see that it is a beautiful daysailer but also that sails very well.

I still don't like the upholstery but we can see on the movie that it is just a removable thing.

I love the head LOL.

Re: Frank Cammas

Speaking of Frank Cammas (again), he and his sailing partner Sophie de Turckheim are currently sitting in 5th position overall, after 9 races, at the Nacra 17 European Championships, on Lake Como. They are 18 points out of 1st and will have a very hard time catching the dominant Austrian pair of Tanja Frank and Thomas Zajac. At the same time, they have a 15 point gap over the 6th place Italians, so I imagine their focus will be on getting into that second or third podium spot.

Consider this is the Olympic mixed multihull class, which means many of the competitors are doing Olympic campaigns (include Cammas, I believe). In this case, Cammas is crewing and calling tactics, while Turckheim is driving. Pretty impressive stuff. From this event they will have the Worlds coming up next month, then the Little Americas Cup. What a life!

We deal in lead, friend.

Re: Interesting Sailboats - Open yard

Met the test boats today again. Salona 38, Elan 400 and Solaris 37, in very light winds.

Then I went for a test sail with the Dragonfly 32. Impressive speeds, 8-9 knots, with Code 0, in 8-9 knots of wind, beam reaching. Mr W:s parents also took part.

I also got a quick preview look at the Oceanis 38 (show starts tomorrow). Did not impress. Angular deck, low mast, small wheels. More tomorrow.

If I succeded with all picture upploads, you can see the nice cliffs at my anchorage, behind them is the Hallberg-Rassy yard.

Regards,
Anders
