Re: Interesting Sailboats

I have seen some pics on facebook, but nothing so far elsewhere. Jeanneau has a new boat coming out, the SO 349. Looks nicer than the 33i that it replaces, not as boxy as the 379, more like the 409 is with IMHO better lines all around. A performance and std rig etc is being speced. BUT< if the performance is anything like the other xx9 series boats from Jeanneau, the Performance options will be nothing more than nicer/easier features from a sailing standpoint from what I can see. IE line control cars, both main and genoa. an extra winch along with larger sheet winches, spin gear std.....tri radial sails, and sometimes a 135 genoa vs a 110.....nothing I would look for, like a deeper lead keel option, taller rig by a meter or two depending upon the length..........

I have also not seen anthing about Jeanneau doing a 2nd interior option. A 2 cabin with a front V berth and rear head would be my preferred interior if I could choose an option.

One could almost forget that Structures is first of all a boatyard for racers. Class 40, Mini 6.50, in both categories they are working on new designs (40 S3, Pogo 3).

But what I like most in this video is the testimony of their inidividual employees.
From before ordering to past delivery we have visited the yard 11 times and it always striked us how involved every single one of these (few) girls and (many) guys are.

Truthful people, to us this is a important added value.

Best regards,

Watch out for the girls!!!!

They are training hard in their pink boat and they have hell of a skipper that has already showed that if she gets a good boat she can beat most of the competition, men included.

Nice images, nice pink boat, nice girls

Comet 41s (my boat).

Everybody has been posting nice videos of their nice boats here and I had only posted pictures. Fact is that I am a reasonable photographer and have not any experience with a video camera. Besides since I sail alone with my wife that is not a great help even if she is progressing, when things are interesting I am to busy. I have not a Gopro and have to make the movie, that is not practical with situations that need a good hand at the wheel and attention on the sails.

Anyway, here comes a first try. The conditions were not great for an exciting movie and I was minimizing the boat roll since my wife was a bit seasick: I could had more sail out, I would be a bit faster but the motion of the boat would be harder...so since I want my wife happy, that's the best I could get.

RC 44 championship, Portuguese round.

Great race with the local team (Cascais) missing narrowly the victory but winning several races. Great weather for sailing with 18k winds, great fun, great video.



These boats are very interesting they are very similar to the old AC cup monohulls but with half the size. Incredible boats upwind and very difficult to sail downwind. These boats really need a great crew to take advantage of their speed potential.
