Hi Paulo,
I even think the angle is wider than 90. Look at this promotional video of North Sails. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CHh0ySn...autoplay%253D1

I tried a furling Code 1 by Elvstrom on the Luffe 37 in very light wind conditions and it was amazingly efficient upwind. I did not try it poled out but like you Oluf said this can be done. I ordered one for my Luffe which will be ready in a couple of months or earlier. I skipped the spinnaker, since most of the time I will sail solo and am sceptical of my ability to handle it myself together with the Amin and the steering on that kind of boat.

Regards

Rumen

Hi, nice to hear from you...and I want to see photos of your new boat and I believe I will not be the only one.

Those angles are only the ones were the sail has better efficiency. I had a Code 0 and it was a fantastic sail for light wind. I don't know what is the sail configuration you are going to use and I don't know if a code 0 would not be more useful than a code1, maybe. Ask Oluf, he will know.

Regards

Paulo

The boat is not ready yet. Hull and deck have been molded by means of vacuum infused technology with epoxy and balsa core. Here is the link: The Switch to Closed Molding - Professional BoatBuilder Magazine
I was at the boat yard in late November and talked to one of the workers. He said the stiffness is much better than that of previous GRP polyester hand laid hulls and decks.*
Because I wanted a selftacking jib in order not to undersize it a lot, Oluf moved the mast back a little and now the total sail plan is 49 sq.m. (25 main and 24 jib) instead of the standard 51 sq.m. (26 main and 25 overlapping jib), thus the balance remains the same. Besides, after weighing the pros against the price increase, I opted for a carbon fibre mast and boom instead of the standard aluminium as per my initial order. The manufacturer is Southern Spars. Well, I hope I will save money from other non-boat related things.

Rumen

Rm 1600

Unbelievable, Rm wants to make yachts A brand that for many years made only small boats (the 1200 has not many years) goes for the big ones. I hope that, like many, it will not abandon its origins and the small cruisers.

And for now, what I can say is that the 1600 looks like a yacht...and a nice one

Class 9.50

I believe I never talked here about this class, that till now has been a bit of a flop even if the boats are very interesting and besides being a very interesting platform for a performance cruiser.

"Since 2008, there are some boats on the water that are not Mini 650, that are smaller than 40class racers, the Class 9.50.

The class was born in 2007. The first boats were launched quickly, the 950 Akilaria designed by Marc Lombard and built by the shipyard "Mc Tec", the Tip Top 950 designed by Sam Manuard and built by "Naval Force 3" and finished by Sails All Purpose, the St Mandrier and 950 Fox designed by Charles Bertrand.

After years of sailing and testing, the 950 class racers are unanimously considered a lively and very seaworthy boat, with maximum fun for a minimum budget.

Today, CLASSE950 has 14 boats ready to race, 3 boats will be launched soon."


Classe 9.50

But the class never really took off and the races are mostly IRC races or races with the minis. Don't know why the class never picked up and certainly these are not boats competitive in IRC races. These are solo racers designed for transats and downwind sailing but they don't have any transat on their calendar. Why not make them part of the mini transat as a separated class?

Anyway an interesting boat, far more easy to sail than a class 40, faster and more seaworthy than a mini racer. Some movies:

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Lemonchois capsized with "Prince de Bretagne" so Joyon will keep his record... Meanwhile Coville parks in the doldrums and is 400 miles behind the record.
