Maybe be the narrow recess in the forepeak (that has compromised the anchor locker) is designed for some long tall guy/girl to stretch his/her foot (maybe both feet) and to get them locked.

ORC world championship 2014

The world championship is alternately on the Baltic and on the Med. Last year it was in Italy, Ancona, next year it will be in Germany in Kiel.Entries opened 2 months ago and they have already over 125 entrants for a competition that it will take place more than 6 months from now.

Almost for sure the number of entries it will be the biggest ever and they have already boats from 13 nationalities including title winners and vice champions of 2012 and 2013.

It sounds good for ORC that is on the rise. Lots of interesting boats among them the Neo 400.

Let's take the opportunity to have a look at last year's world Championship that took place in Ancona on the choppy med waters and remember the Podium and the champions:

Class A:

1St:TP52 Hurakan - Marco Serafini
2nd:TP52 Aniene - Rinaldi - Martin
3rd:TP52 Enfant Terrible - Alberto Rossi

Class B:

1St: NM 38 Scugnizza - Vincenzo De Blasio
2nd: Comet 38S Uka Uka Racing -Uka Uka Racing
3rd: First 35 South Kensington - Alessandro Consiglio







and Kiel the city where the 2014 world Championship will be held:

Vor: more entries

A Turkish one, or should I say American

That's a Turkish boat:



but it will be sailed by the All Americans Ocean racing team.

All American Ocean Racing | Get To Know Us

They are young, talented and inexperienced on the VOR or circumnavigation races. Nice for them to have a chance.

Another new team is the Dutch Team Brunel:



The skipper will be the Veteran Bouwe Bekking. It will be his 7th VOR and second as skipper and this will be a all Dutch team....and they are looking for sailors, so if you are a Dutch and a good sailor...

"Meet Brunel skipper Bouwe Bekking and his crew members. Are you a professional sailor? Find out how to join the crew here!"


https://www.facebook.com/bouwebekking

It seems to me that this time the "Girls" will have a more than fair chance to win the next VOR: They seem to me one of the more professional teams and one with sailors with the best qualifications, not to mention hard training with the boat.

Thanks EricK!

Let's have a look at an interesting new racer by Hakes Marine the HH42, a NZ boat designed by Judel and VrolijK.





It seems she can go fast



But a bit wet isn't it ? I guess that a more pronounced chine on the bow, a bit like the 40class racers have, would give them a much more comfortable ride but maybe not faster. Well if you want to go really fast you will get wet, that's for sure but these guys seem to be exaggerating

For the guys that race in fast boats: They should not be all on the back of the boat, starboard side, to raise the bow?

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Coville stopped his attempt to get the world record for a singlehanded circumnavigation due to a high risk of ice in the southern ocean and no real chance to beat Joyon's record...

That ice story is a an excuse. In fact he got caught in the Doldrums and was already a 1000 NM behind Joyon's time.

From the three that went for records only Armel has succeed (Lionel Lemonchois capsized) and what a success: 2 times the 24 hours solo record beaten and the Atlantic crossing in the incredible time of 6 jours 23 heures 42 minutes at the amazing average speed of 23.2K. To give you an idea of this fantastic performance, the anterior record (2013) was from Joyon and was beaten by 1 day and almost 17 hours. The deference of average speed is huge: 18.7K to 23.2K.

That was faster than the best time with a full crew 7 years ago.

It seems that Armel Le Cleach has successfully made its transition from monohulls to multihulls

Sydney GTS 43

I saw the boat in Dusseldorf and I was really impressed. The boat really looks good, very well built and with a surprisingly good interior for this type of cruiser-racer that is more used for racing than for cruising. Better than a Pogo 12.50 for instance: it even has doors

The only thing the really points for a racer are the suspended bunks that are easily removable and can be substituted by a shelf for books that enters the same supports.

For the type of boat with top performance the price has to be high but I was expecting more. The basic price is 319 000 euros.

I thought that this was the first Sydney GTS43 made by Salona but it turned out that they have already made and sold 10 boats and that is very good for this kind of extreme performance cruiser. I expressed my surprise to Nenad (the sales manager from Salona) and said that probably they are starting to win and they are going to have a lot more commands. Nenad replied : "that's what I am afraid off. These boats are very difficult to build"

Just to give you an idea of the performances of this boat it is enough to say that from 45º to 120º true wind and with 4K to 8K wind the boat is always faster then the wind. With 4K wind between 60º and 120º the boat is always over 5K, doing almost 6K at 100º. At that angle with 5K wind the boat makes 7K

With 16K wind goes at more than 13K, with 20K wind over 16K and with 30K wind over 20K.

These are performances of a racer. What really impresses is that this boat can be used as a performance cruiser or a cruiser racer, certainly one of the faster.

I will not talk about the boat dimensions since I had already posted about that, just some photos and a movie... (Beautiful boat):



























I asked about the 37 and no, they had not yet made any boat but I learn that the demand of information about the 37 had been big on the boat show and that means that we will see one soon. The 37 will cost about 260 000 euros (base price) and for the ones that will dream in cruising one of these fast boats it will be a better option, since the 43 is too much boat to be handled by a solo sailor. Contrary to the Pogo 12.50 it is not a forgiven boat, designed to be solo sailed and will demand a crew to be sailed near its potential, specially downwind.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Hmmm, the salesperson that showed me the Sydney told me that there were only very few requests for the 37... He also said that compared to an Australian Sydney the build quality at Salona is a lot better.

One of the floor-boards was so flexible that they had to prop it up...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

The floorboards on the Sydney GTS43 at Dusseldorf were extraordinarily squeaky -- I'm not sure they would necessarily have turned out that squeaky even if someone had tried to make them squeaky! Squeaky floorboards are a pet peeve of mine.

I really went on the GTS43 though to get a different view of the Azuree 46 across from it (which happily passed my squeaky floorboard test).
