Re: Interesting Sailboats

Looking at the design I thought it almost made sense Paulo. Very interesting designs.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.

Strange boat

Not properly a sailboat, but quite an interesting one:

Here it is:

It looks more modern. Dragonfly are great boats but in what regards the outside design they could look more sharp and this ones looks better.

For posting pics the better is to have them posted on a free photo site (photobucket for instance) and then post the link.

Regards

Paulo

Loick Peiron is learning new tricks.

We have talk here several times about Cammas, that by the way is going to be at the wheel of the French team on the next AC, but talked less about another French sail legend, Loick Peiron.

Loick is older, I mean he is really old for a top racer (55). He started is sailing carrier by winning the 1979 mini transat and his accomplishments are too long to post here but I guess all know he is the holder of the absolute sail circumnavigation record and besides that maybe its bigger accomplishment is to have won for six times the Trophée Clairefontaine.

I bet many don’t know what is that and why it is important, well it is a French thing, kind of the race of the Champions regarding sail. They invite world champions from all sail categories and the best to win.

Peyron is by far the record holder of that race that he won 8 times, 5 of them in a row. The guy that stopped that row was a certain Franck Cammas that have won for 3 times. There are also a Mr Desjoyeux that have won for 4 times….and the last year’s winner was a certain Gabart.

But Peyron is learning to sail again and stayed near the tail on the last world championship he had entered .....and that just puts him higher on my consideration because the championship was with this “things” that he decided to learn how to fly with 54 years of age. Big balls





Of course, even near the tail of a world championship he was far from ridiculous and just racing there says how good he is already with the “Moth”. Maybe next year he would fight for the top places, after all he is just the new kid on the block and he is learning.

What a Character, have a look at this interview:



How many times do you have crossed the Atlantic? : 50 times….and he could have add that 6 of them on major transat races that he won as well as two during circumnavigations races/records that he beat or won.

Stamm towing his boat



They have talked about the boat breaking in half but for what we can see it seems that it was the bow section that broke.

Stamm dived today under the boat and was surprised to see that the keel and bulb (almost half the weight of the boat) are still there. the boat was violently shaken by the storm and the cabin's top was destroyed. It is incredible how the airtight compartments that make the boat unsinkable could maintain the boat afloat, considering that it is broken in two parts, with a broken cabin top and supporting almost 4 tons of ballast.
