You mean polyvalence?

"polyvalence Same as multivalence."

polyvalence - definition, etymology and usage, examples and related words

You mean is not colloquial on the US? not used frequently?

That is an old word, in comes from "polus" (ancient Greek)+ "Valens"(latin). The term is used on most of the western languages with slightly different spellings.

From your link.... still

Are we trying to say 'versatile'??? multipurpose?? I would say that in this context the terms polyvalent or multivalent are not routinely used this side of the pond.

From the link:

"In news:
Syrian film scholar Cécile Boëx examines how The Light in Her Eyes shatters fantasy and stereotypes about Islam and presents the mosque as a polyvalent space.

In science:
They also formulated a theory of monovalent and multivalent counterions in suspensions of polarizable colloids or nanoparticles which in some respects complements our work where the mono or polyvalent counterions themselves are treated as polarizable.


"polyvalence Same as multivalence."


Probably that means that the word exists in English but it is not much used by Americans.

other examples:

"The exceptional firm R was also of this type after dilution of its highly planned collective polyvalence."

Forcing the Factory of the Future: Cybernation and Societal Institutions - Bryn Jones - Google Livros

With 18 possible shields, the 27° AIR series offers exceptional polyvalence

Uptown Eyes, PLLC - Fayetteville Optometry & Eyewear | Gallery

The success of the First 44.7 is assured thanks to its exceptional polyvalence, an aggressive line and an everlasting price/quality relationship.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

I found videos of how to handle a boat singlehanded: Manoeuvres du J111 Le Jouet

I also read some reviews of singlehanded use of a J111. They say the layout works well and it is fast, too but it will lose up to 5 degrees when pointing compared to crewed racing...

Very interesting, thanks for posting. These videos can be of help to any solo sailor, I mean at least for the not very good ones, like me

Besides that the biggest disadvantage will be the boat being less forgiven, less stable and sailing with more heeling than a boat designed for solo race.

Going ahead for changing sales will be more dificult and the boat will roll more downwind needing constant adjustments and because of that it will not be able to be sailed downwind at the same speed a solo boat can, specially on autopilot.

Regarding solo racing it is important to have a boat that is not too demanding and one that does not ask for constant trimming and makes live easy to the sailor. After all they need to sleep while the boat is on autopilot at speed.


With a crew:



Solo:

The equipment:



The Spinnaker:



Gibing:



Some bright ideas:

Sense 46, new test sail

A new test on the Sense 46 by Yachting Monthly. If I lived permanently on a boat this one would be on my short list.

Well, I would like a boat more performance oriented but to have this kind of interior space I would have to have a much bigger boat...and I don't believe I could afford that, or having to live on a smaller boat and if i lived permanently on a boat I am not sure that I would chose a better performance over space...at least if I wanted to keep my wife
