Americas'cup

If you don't want to see the full replay of races 1 and 2 but a short review look here:



and if you want to know why the NZ had won the two races, a specialist tells you why (French). If you cannot understand French that's simple: The NZ team outsailed Oracle. The main errors are analyzed and even not understanding the language, the images talk by themselves. The two boats are very close in performance.



Next race starts in 30 minutes. Above there is a link for direct transmission.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Jeanneau Owners Network - Jeanneau Owners News

If one goes to that link thru the end of sept 2013, you can see some pics of what the new 64' Jeanneau should look like. Apparently they will have two deck options. One more cruisy, the other more of a performance race option with a walk thru transom vs a garage for a dinghy. Also an option for a carbon mast etc too. Now if they would do something like this for the smaller boats.....

Great looking boat....and it seems that they have opted by a single tiller (some images showed 2 tillers).

About the interior is where I am not so happy

Paulo

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paulo,

Interior at the moment does not look that great.

I believe on the cockpit, I am seeing maybe three options. Single and dual tillers, along with dual wheels, depending upon if you are planning to SH, DH or crew sail/race the boat. THis may be setup for crew, hence the single tiller?!?!?!?!?!?

America's cup

What a race!!!!! The ones that say that this is not a great spectacle and great sailing don't like racing for sure.

One more to NZ: 3-0 now. The Kiwis even with a penalty (that seemed disputable to me) recovered to an amazing win. Another big Oracle error allowed NZ to pass them and take the lead.

The boats seem very even, Oracle slightly fast downwind and NZ slightly fast upwind.

I cannot wait for the 4th race (almost mid night here in Greece).

America's cup

Another great race...and this time Oracle won. 3-1. As I had said the boats are very evenly matched, this is true match racing....at 40K

I guess these boats are going to become popular. How can they not? They offer incredible racing and bring sailing to another dimension.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paolo- I'm wondering about how well the Ovni's/Allure's/Boreal's (not necessarily in that order) might handle stormier conditions than say > 40 kts tws. I know that's a bit specific, but there's not much out there in the way of information or experience, even for the Ovni's- which are the oldest of the 3 makes. This may boil down to speculation, but until we fly over to either the UK or France to test sail one of these, that's ok. Do you (or does anyone) have any idea?
