What happened to Milan KOLACEK

Number four on the mini Proto ranking in 2012, he was really eager for last year's transat that he never made:



With his famous boat, the "Follow me" a 2009 Sam Manuard design that he sailed to some victories and great results among them French solo Champion.

Document sans titre

The boat was first was first lent to Jeffrey MACFARLANE for the last transat and then sold to an almost unknown Romain Mouchel.

What happen to this great sailor, a Czech one?

I can find his face book page but I cannot read Czech. Someone can?:

https://www.facebook.com/milan.kolacek.39

It seems he is selling a book? but it says anything about his sailing projects?

It seems it is hard not to be a french to have a professional career as solo sailor. It happened the same to the Portuguese Francisco Lobato that disappeared without trace... well, this one is also a NA so maybe he is designing boats...with some luck.

Downwind / upwind performance or Beamy versus Narrow hulls.

It was already sometime ago, this race that preceded the Sydney-Hobart. At the time I posted some videos but this one is so much better and so curious:

We can see how Loyal and also the two top VOR pass on the downwind leg passing by Wild Oats. The difference in speed is awesome.

Of course upwind the two smaller VOR did not stand a a chance but it seems that Loyal was almost as fast (she blew a sail and got behind). Anyway Wild Oats goes upwind like a dart.

Not easy to have a right balance between upwind and downwind performance but I still think that in most circumstances Loyal has a better balance. With lighter winds Wild Oats is the master, no doubt about that.

Varianta 37: very nice!

We had already talked about this boat that has a truly incredible price:



Yes and that price includes 19% German Vat and yes, it is a very nice hull. The Hanse 37 was a very fast boat with god results in club regattas. This one is even better, with the same hull lighter and with a better performance keel.

The boat was presented in Dusseldof and I was very curious to see the quality of finish and practical details. Some years ago the Varianta 44 was a deception: Yes an interesting boat but only suited for club racing with a bad galley, a bad finish and without a proper anchor and chain locker. They had reviewed the 44, it is better but again no accessible chain locker from the deck.

Well, the 37 was the opposite of a deception if we discount the optional settees (on the boat on the show) that are awful but the standard ones are "normal". The quality of the interior is surprisingly good for the price as the finish. The boat looks simple but clean and nice. I liked it. The only thing that is small for the size of the boat is the refrigerator but maybe they have an option for a bigger one.

The boat comes already with sails but not a furler and the sailing performance is amazingly good or maybe not since the 37 was fast and this one is lighter and the keel with less drag and wet surface. The boat was considerably faster with light winds than the new oceanis 38 and that is not a slow one.

For someone that has not the money to a "normal" cruiser this is a way of having a new boat for the price of an used one and the boat has the potential to be upgraded with time: Anchor winch, Furler and many other things can be added with time. I like the idea...I almost have the wish to have one

Essence 33: A new look

We already had a look at this wonderful classical daysailer that was nominated for this Year's European boat of the year contest.





A new look to bring to the attention two points. First the winch position that is one of those that we have discussed on a previous post and is one of the options in what regards modern rigging adapted to solo sailing. The solution is the one using 3 winches being one central and as the other boats that have used this solution this one does not have a traveler.

You can see it's use on this nice movie by Yacht.de:

http://tv.yacht.de/video/Essence-33%...8d6545164b248f

The other point that I missed at the time is that is an André Hoeck design. André is best known by it's series of huge classical yachts with modern under bodies based on the Pilot cutter. Having a better look at this boat, well, it seems much like a miniature of one of his big yachts, keel and all. Take a look:















So if you have not the money to "play" with a big one, you can always have a "miniature" even if those are not cheap either. Truly beautiful boats.

Grand surprise

Didn't know that this very popular boat (in France) had made it to Australia. It its the small daysailer / weekender /racer from Archambault. Great movie

Voyage boat : Tudulut the new 12m by Jean-Pierre Brouns

Jean-Pierre Brouns has specialized in designing voyage boats made in Strongal, a type of thick aluminium that reunites the advantages of the steel in what regards easy building (without the need of too much internal framing) with the lightness of Aluminium. His designs are also very particular and I find this one interesting:

A 40ft voyage twin keel, narrow and with the ability to carry a dinghy of considerable dimensions on the garage. If it was for me I would have asked for a bit more ballast. This one seems adequate for a more beamier boat, but not having the power generated by the form stability of a more beamier hull, I would like to have more RM coming from the keel. I like stiff and powerful boats.

With the exception of that I kind of like it, with its ability to stand on its strong "legs" almost everywhere and its rustic but effective looks. This one has life lines the way Brent S. likes them and it is not also far from the concept he has of a voyage boat, but this one is more modern and certainly a faster sailboat. Kind of boat you would not find strange to meet in the Arctic or Antarctic waters.

The boat is designed to be built by a skilled amateur of by a small shipyard without the expensive machines needed to effectively and easily make rounded aluminium hulls, a hull that would not take many hours to assemble from previously cut parts.











Dimensions:

Hull lenght ------ 11.80m
LWL-------------11.50
Beam------------3.49m
Light weight------8500kg
weight Max load--10350kg
Ballast-----------2500kg
Draft-------------1.74m
Mainsail-----------37.8m2
Jib----------------37.2m2
Reacher-----------72.7m2

I've always liked that combination of classic look above the water and contemporary sleeper underbody.. and imagine the fun you'd have sailing by someone expecting a heavy old full keeler approaching!

The Spirits yachts appeal similarly, though a local example did not display the speed one would expect. (could have been the crew)
