And there are no inserts in the hull to distract you from the nice view inside!

P.S. JimMcGee, I liked very much that quotation from "The sea and the wind that blows".

52 Super series Key West regatta

Great sailing in Key west. These series lost a lot regarding the previous Audi Med cup. Worst coverage, less teams, less countries, less TV exposure, less money and less interest in what regards the secondary races (40 series) that where many times so spectacular as the main races.

Even so the last day with lots of wind provided great sailing:





The secondary races:

It's an amazing this video. I am not sure whether I got properly what happened so correct me if I am wrong since I have no idea about racing. The guys were doing fine down wind with the gennaker, the helmsman doing the steering and the main sheet traveller, the next two guys forward were handling the gennaker sheet and the forth guy in the front was navigating and may be in charge of the vang sheet. At one point they sheeted hard on the wind in order to avoid a boat in trouble and this turned to a broach where they heeled excessively, sunk the leeward rail and blew the gennaker in the water. It took wuite a time to resume trim but not sure whether everything was finally OK. Do I miss something?

Re: Interesting Sailboats

i hope you have not mentioned it, but Vismaramarine.it have some very nice boats - like this 47 fast cruiser... and it is relatively light too with only 10.25 t...
V47 Fast Cruiser

although the interior looks a little sterile to me...

Planing vs. Displacement mode.

Re: 52 Super series Key West regatta

I missed the end where a guy jibed to leeward which probably made them sail to high in a gust... then shrimping

Yes, Vismara has some great yachts. We talked about the little one the 34 and I think I had posted something about the bigger ones. The big one is the 80ft, already with some years:



the other recent boats are a 50 Hybrid:



and the V47 that you posted that is a very beautiful and fast boat:



But I confess the one I like more is the little 34Ds with his inverted bow and aggressive look:

Edward is right. They had to change course to avoid a boat, they went to high...and lost control.

Please when you quote don't quote the videos or the photos. I have some problems with the available band in this thread

Paulo

Azuree 46 and Dusselforf boat show.

We have already looked here at the Azuree 46. The boat is beautiful, has great dimensions that make it not only fast as seaworthy but sometimes you get disappointed when you see the real thing. Photos can be misleading...but not on this case. The boat has a good quality interior, not top but with a similar quality of Dehler or Dufour and a great design. It fells great inside, cozy and with lots of space. We even forget that we are inside a performance cruiser. Great boat, great design.



and I have a big new about Azuree: They have also a 40 with just some few years, one that I like the program but not much the design neither the reserve stability. I am a bit picky about that in what regards a cruising boat. A pity because the boat is a sort of a Pogo 12.50 with a good interior, not so light not so fast but fast enough for me taking into account the interior comfort.

Well the big new is that they are not stupid they and have eyes and good taste. They are going to ditch the boat out and asked Humphreys (the designer of the 46 and Elan 400) to design them a brand new 40 along the same principle: Light, based on a 40class hull and with a good and comfortable interior. Given what he accomplished on the 46 I cannot wait to see the result.

If you are in the market for a brand new 40 performance cruiser and like boats based on Open boats, fast and with a comfortable interior, I would wait some months to see what is going to come out from Humphreys hands. Azuree have one of the best quality/price relation on the market and the Azuree 46 is beautiful, so....

250 000 at Dusseldorf boat show.

Well, I was one of them but even so 249 999 is a lot of people or should I say sailors? They have about half sail boats half motor boats but the people on the sailboat pavilions is much more than in any other sector, so I am pretty sure that the majority are sailors.

They come from all over Europe and even Russia (saw several). Meet a nice couple with an Halberg Rassy looking for something faster. They had come from England just to visit a Dufour 410. It is really impressive the quantity of foreign languages you can hear. Meet some Portuguese too.
