What do you mean, not new because we talk here about here at more than a year ago? A boat is nominated as boat of the year if it is presented on that year or on the previous year after the boats having being already nominated for the contest. probably it is the case with the Malango 888 that is a new boat that followed the 870.

Salona 38

A nice video on a favorite boat, one that can win races at top level and that can even be used as a party boat

look at the video:

Регата 13//38 Хорватия 04-2013 Яхта Cherry Salona-38 from Roman Strokov on Vimeo.



Those are good news, I mean the boat is so successful that they have in Croatia a full flotilla that can be used for racing events with similar boats. You can invite some friends and have a private race on an wonderful setting in even conditions on fast boats. It seems that it was what these Russians have made and I would say that they seem to be enjoying the boat and the party

It seems also that the Australians have discovered the boat. I can only read good things from Australian boat testers. Maybe we will see some on this year's Sydney Hobart?

SCA and the Girls

They are doing this the right way. No true top level sailing without sponsoring and the sponsor has see advantages coming out of the deal. It seems SCA is building a new image and a world recognition of the brand. It seems they are going to get well out of this...and sailing too.

Mini Transat

The delay starts to be embarrassing. Last news:

"Back on the weather
To understand the situation, imagine the dividing line from the Brittany Penninsular and Cape Finisterre. This highway is, for the moment, being swept by the western margin of the strong to very strong southwesterly winds. Inshore of that line the conditions are much more manageable, but it's a potential trap for competitors who may be at risk of being caught in the bay and not being able to get out. At the moment the winds are particularly strong between the Ortegal peninsula and Cape Finisterre, where gusts of over 50 knots are expected in the coming days.

The Gijon option
This situation has led the race committee not to activate the option of a stopover in Gijon. Given current projections, the risk was too great that the fleet would find itself stuck in the Asturian port, unable to safely navigate the 180 miles separating Gijon and the tip of Galicia, in the face of strong winds from the west. This option can be activated only if the Spanish stopover permitted a maximum wait of two to three days before crossing the tip of Spain. The race director does not discount any options in the interests of the competitors."

Re: Interesting Sailboats

"For instance she vetoed the Pogo...but she likes the boat excepting the interior and says, well, this one with a nice interior"

SWMBO has done this to me with pictures a few times too. Some J-boats have a race vs cruise interior, she sees the rather bleak, goes YUCK! See's the nicer one with some wood etc around, she purr's! She did that to a degree with the Pogo 40. The true race, no way, the nicer one, possibly. but even that is a bit slim. She does like the look of the boat.

She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!

My wife was accompanied me every year on the last 10 years or more to the biggest boat shows in Europe, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Paris, Barcelona and have being inside a lot of sailing boats and has also a lot of cruising experience.

She is not easily deceived and she is a lot better than me in what regards the lack of practical details, lack of storage, inefficiencies in a galley or head.

When I see a nice boat I say wow how nice it would be sailing this and tend to forget about the rest. She is there to remind me that the a cruising boat is also for living for a considerable period of time

Yes, the midget saves the giant to go downhill and give it an hand. Is that sensible? or it will end up like the last owner, Northwest, a solid motor boat company that ended up bankrupt too?

I don't see a future in that. For surviving Najad needed a big change, a reformulation of its dimension or a large injections of capital to robotize the production to lower significantly costs. I don't see any of that possible, the labor laws in Sweden are very restrictive and a small company has not the means for a big capital injection.

It will probably be a dream for Swedstar that will end up in nightmare.

Curiously Maxi yachts that was owned by Najad seems to me with a lot better chances now that it is owned by Delphia, now a medium sized company making 150 boats a year.

By the way I always wonder how, a bit more than a decade ago Delphia had managed, without any nautical savoir faire to go right with the Delphia 40 from the beginning, I mean with in what regards building techniques. I know now that the molds had been made by Comet and they had a lot of collaboration and transfer of know how. Comar/Comet is still today the dealer in italy.

While we haven't done the extensive boat show tours, the relationship you describe sounds very familiar!...
