Mini Transat and Transat Jaques Vabre

Decidedly Boidevezi does not like to do the same thing as the others: where the hell is he going?

He managed to spoil our little comparison about speed on the same course between Boidevezi and the leader. Pedote keeps pushing ahead but now it is Delesne that in 18 hours managed to reduce his distance to Pedote in 12Nm. He is now at 49nm.

Cartographie | Mini Transat 2013 - Douarnenez / Lanzarote / Pointe-à-Pitre

On the Transat JV:

On Open 60, pretty much the same being the good new that Gabart contrary of what many would expect has not gone away from Riou that had managed to keep the pace 29nm back. Also surprisingly Beyou is not losing time to these two and maintains a distance of about 69nm. We have race even for the winner!!!! Pretty much all open yet.

Marc going at speed:


Jour 10 - Safran (IMOCA) - Transat Jacques... por TransatJacquesVabre

A situation point about the race:


Day 8's resume - Transat Jacques Vabre 2013 por TransatJacquesVabre

On 40class the two leading boats are more and more distant from the others. The third is already at 131nm. Rogues is leading and Riechers seems not able to reduce the 46nm disadvantage.

Multi 70: It is absolutely amaizing the diference of pace for the Open60, almost the double. While the Open60 where arriving at Cabo Verde the M70 where arriving to Brazil
Finally it seems that there is some interest in their race with Gavignet reducing the distance to Josse to 47nm.

Look at the mini rating and you will see that on the top are sailors that use conventional boats. If it was like you say everybody with be racing with "bath tube" bow boats

Didn't Pedote race the Scow in these races?

Yes, avec Remi Aubrun (it was a duo race). Yes you are right, I should have said any major race. On the the last La Trinité / Plymouth were racing 9 protos and none of them was a top contender except Pedote.



Raison bath tub bow boats have won more races and some major ones too. Let's say that they have not dominated the racing mini-Panorama as some would expect after the victory on the last transat.

They only win when they have favorable conditions and it is not a boat that can win in any conditions. They have lost a lot more races than the ones they have won (2 boats racing on the mini-circuit) and that reflects on Pedote ranking on the mini circuit (4th).

Here you have all the victories and other results:

Document sans titre

This year Pedote has been very strong but it is hard to say how much it is due to Pedote and how much to the boat.

Let´s see how the race goes. Pedote is not going away and the difference to the chasing pack had stabilized (45/60Nm).

Regards

Paulo

Maxi 1300 MkII

Maxy yacts, now belonging to Delphia, presented a new version of the Maxi 1300: Two wheel set up and a new interior.

I cannot say that I like too much the interior, specially the rat colored settees but this boat remains one of my favorites. Great interior quality, great rigging layout for solo sailing, a quite narrow hull (3.80m) and a considerable B/D (41%) on a 2,25m bulbed keel.

Not really a cruiser racer but certainly a fast and very comfortable performance cruiser. The best new is the price that went down considerably (this boat was very expensive): 336,740 euros including 21% VAT.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paulo:
The client will have his spin hal and genoa hal on the mast winches. I suppose we could go with one winch but for now it's two.

The boat will have the Leisure Furl system as the client has that now and likes it. There will not be any reefing winches. Main hal and furling lines will run back to the cockpit to the winch on top of the cabin trunk to starboard.

This is the identical set up the client has now and he likes it.
Part of this design brief was to give the cliengt a boat thatg he will feel immediately familiar with when he first goes sailing. He is sticking with the sailing systems that he knows work well for him now.

"bathtub bow" I like that. I know why it works but I wish it did not work so well. It's very hard to look at. Great photi of that bow. Reminds me of some of the old, traditional Dutch yachts.

Transat Jaques Vabre - Mini Transat

Transat JV:

Better then never: a turning point (or not) on all different class races. It is a coincidence but what a coincidence:

On Open 60 Beyou has managed to reduce Gabart lead to just 23Nm and they are both entering the famous "pot noir" where the wind is a lottery and one can lose or win a lot depending on tactical options.

The leader at speed:


Jour 10 - MACIF (IMOCA) - Transat Jacques Vabre... por TransatJacquesVabre

On Multi 50 they are both into the "pot" that place that the English call doldrums, and there Yves has managed to caught and overtake Le Roux that has now a 32 nm disadvantage. They are not out of it and one or the other can get out first and win or lose a lot more.

Curiously on the class 40, that are still away from this dark region, the two first are entering in a high pressure zone with little wind. It seems that it was this that Riechers, the 2nd, was hopping for. It seems that he thinks he has an advantage in light winds. Let's see if he is right. He managed to diminish is distance to the first and in 3 hours won 12nm. He is know at 37nm from the first, Rogues.

Finally, on M70 they are closing on the finish line and only 21Nm separates the two boats. The second is finally closing on the long time leader, Josse. Gavignet won 10Nm on the last hours and is only at 21Nm.

Transat Jacques Vabre 2013

It would be hard to have a more interesting race

Mini transat:

Interesting here too, with Delesne (2nd) closing slowly on Pedote (1st). On the last 4 hours he managed to win 6Nm over Pedote and is now at 42Nm.

Cartographie | Mini Transat 2013 - Douarnenez / Lanzarote / Pointe-à-Pitre

Guess who is the designer of Delesne boat? Sam Manuard, who else? and not a new design (2009).

Sam Manuard as designer is having an incredible performance on this race: 1st and 2nd in class40, 2nd in Mini. Please can someone order a Open60 to this guy?

By the way, Sam Manuard is racing too, not on this one but on the Jaques vabre. He is crewing for Mura a "client" that is racing one of his boats. They had bad luck and had to stop in Spain to have the mast repaired. They went out in 17th and they are now in 13th and winning over the boats ahead. Not bad for a NA Well, last year he had done better and won the race with Yves in M50. This is certainly one NA that cannot be accused by some fellow sailneters of not having offshore experience...and in differnt types of boats
