20 ans, le bel âge de la Transquadra! por overlapprod
News about the Transquadra: the racing solo or duo Transat for amateurs with more than 40 years of age.
More than 80 boats are already in and the number is growing rapidly.
They have made the type of boats more uniform in what regards performance and they will have for the first time an overall classification in real time.
The handicaps allowed were shortened and now they are between 0.949 < TCC-IRC < 1,051 (previously the max allowed was 1,074). That means that boats that were preciously allowed like the J122, Opium 39, Pogo 10.50 are not allowed anymore.
Besides that the boats have to be class A, a hull length between 8,50 m and 12.50 m, having a fixed engine able to push them at 5K and be in accordance with Special Offshore l’ISAF, cat. 1.
Some of the boats that will be competing: Sun Fast 3200 (several), Sunfast 3600, A 35 (several), JPK 10.10 (several), J109, Pogo 30, Elan 350 (several), JPK 9.60 (several), Grand Soleil 37, A31 (several), First 30, Mat 10.10, Dehler 36, Mistral 9.50, Malango 8.88, Sormiou 29 (several), RM 10.60, Bongo 9.60, First 40.7, Azzure 40, Fabulo 36
Only one SF 3600 and none JPK 10.80. Maybe they will appear later. Anyway, lots of interesting boats
