PCP will become famous soon enough
Rm 890

First photo of the new boat that will be presented at the Paris boat show.

The boat looks incredibly beautiful for a 30ft. It is very hard to design a small boat with a great interior space and standing height looking that good. Congratulations to Marc Lombard for a great design.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Well, seems the race is over. Tales II is in light winds and had to gybe while GDFS is with 22kn of wind in full speed in a direct line to the finish. Even mare might overtake Tales II...

@ Paulo: Definately one of the sexiest 30s on the market, but will it be fast?

Okay. Game over. I'm sold. Where do I go to place my order?

Two questions, however: Will the RM890 be available with a swing keel? And why only a single rudder? Would prefer two rudders over one. Otherwise, maximum chapeau on this gorgeous 30-footer. My choice is becoming very easy.

Given the results of the last Fastnet Race, my guess would be that it will be very fast. Or it will at least sail to its rating. It's an RM.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

"Part of the reason for GDF SUEZ losing miles to the two duos which are chasing long time leaders Sébastien Rogues and Fabien Delahaye is revealed this afternoon. The French pair which have lead since the restart from Roscoff tore two of their three spinnakers in the Doldrums. And despite their repair attempts nothing has worked. GDF SUEZ’s pair can see the damage their lack of kites is doing and are clinging on to their lead. At 1100hrs this morning local time (1300hrs UTC) they were 47 miles ahead of the Spanish duo Tales Santander 2014 (Alex Pella and Pablo Santurde) and 54 miles ahead of Mare (Jorg Riechers and Pierre Brasseur). A tense finale is on the cards."

Sorry, my bad. Confused RM with JPK.

Still, the RM does look quick, even with twin keels, which I don't think will perform as well as a strut-bulb or swing keel. In a single-keel configuration I'm betting it will be a quick boat. Bow and aft quarter sections look very aggressive.

Yes it will be fast as a performance cruiser but not fast as a boat more intended for racing like the A31 or the JPK 960 or even the Pogo 30. This boat was thought with fast cruising and voyage on mind even if it would be no slush racing even among other performance cruisers.

No, not a swing keel on the RM. They offer two configurations: Twin keel with 1,55m, deep mono keel 1,90 m. On the twin keel they have a single rudder configuration on the mono keel two rudders.

Probably they have a single rudder on the twin keel mostly as an extra support point when the boat is beached (the rudder has a flat surface on the bottom).

The performance version is obviously the one with mono keel.

Pelicano If you want a boat to do more racing, namely short crew or solo racing, I am quite sure that RM can prepare a special boat for you, with a lighter interior, a bigger draft and a main with a rounded top (how do you call that?) and more sail area. Of course it will be more expensive but maybe they are interested depending on the races you will make.

Once they had prepared a RM 1350 mostly for racing and I remember that on the first race (Route du Rhum - transat) the RM was racing among the 40class boats. Of course this is a very special boat with a very light interior and a different keel.

Transat Jaques Vabre - Mini Transat

Hum, I think Pella is going to overtake Riecher again and it will win a lot over Rogues on the light winds but it will not be enough to catch him, of course. He is in a much better position in relation to the wind regarding Riechers.

Regarding that particular race on Open60 between Tanguy and Benedetto I am really sorry for Benedetto. Even with that big problem with the boat with a lot of water inside he managed to recover over Tanguy and finished at 9 seconds. I said that those two would finish at eyesight view, but 9s after 21 days is pretty unbelievable

On the mini transat Benoit Marie has maintained the distance over Pedote: about 28nm.

I don't know if there's enough runway left but Delesne is only 49nm from a possible podium finish, if he can catch Fermin and Garcia. Garcia is truly sailing well, in a boat that is quite old - 1999 Lombard design - compared to his competition. Of course, he's an experienced racer, having sailed with Jean le Cam in the Barcelona World Race, until they were dismasted. Should he make it on the podium he can be very proud.

No way anyone will catch Pedote and Marie, at this point. Only question will be whether Pedote can hold or extend his slender lead. As much as some of us have raved about the scow and its advantages, Marie is showing that there is plenty of life in the more conventional designs. This one is going down to the wire, I predict. Definitely a Transat for the ages.
