Re: Interesting Sailboats

WOW!!! the JPK 1080 looks great-very similar to there 38FC, great cockpit with center tiller steering, traveler in back of boat, view of the outside world from down below...
It has every thing and more compared to the Sunfast 3600 and Pogo 30.
Gotta do something with that keel.

I fully agree. Also for the Pogo 12.50, less pointing results in an equal upwind VMG but most importantly in a much more comfortable behaviour.

Best regards,

Extreme sailing series: Match 1 Singapore

They are back, better then ever, 12 boats full of great sailors and some super stars: The British Ben Ainsley, the French Franck Cammas and the Kiwi Dean Barker among several Olympic Gold medalists will give an idea of the really top sailing level:



The races started and are going on in Singapore. By now the standing after 12 races are:

First the Swiss from Alinghi followed by Dean Barker and Emirates team NZ then Realstone another Swiss boat, Ben Ainsley and the British from JP Morgan team, and in 5th Franck Cammas and the French from Groupama. Alinghi leads with a comfortable advantage but the the 4 that follow are really very close in points.

If you want to follow one from there start looking after minute 39. That's were the interesting stuff is

RM 1260: Maiden voyage on a new boat

Nice video for several reasons: a Rm 1260 chasing a Jeanneau 409 (also a fast boat). We can see that the Jeanneau is marginally slower and sails with more heel with gusts having more effect on stability while the RM is rock solid and could probably take more sail.

On autopilot the RM would have no trouble in keeping the course on these conditions while on the Jeanneau they would probably have to take some sail down. The Jeanneau is much more closer to the limit than the RM.

Also interesting in what regards to show the visibility from the interior to the outside: nice in what regards looking at the scenery but very useful to be inside with bad or disagreeable weather keeping an eye on the sails and on the horizon.



also interesting this comment by the owner and sailor:..."you do not hear the hull/rigging making any noise."

Pogo 10.50: Maiden voyage

And since we are talking about maiden voyages look at these old salts (the owner and some friends) sailing home, to Norway, a brand new Pogo 10.50 from France by the Irish Sea, the Caledonian Canal, and crossing the North-Sea from Inverness to Kristiansand.

"1400 nautical miles on 13 days. Lot's of surfing. Max speed: 21 knots in a surf outside Lindesnes, Norway."



Decidedly the Pogo as a cruising boat is not a "French" mania anymore neither it is a boat only for athletes or young sailors. They seem to having a great time and lots of sailing fun

Rm 1360

We have talked a lot about the RM 890 but not much about the big brother that is also a very recent boat, the 1360, a blue water passagemaker and a voyage boat, a fast one.

The boat was tested recently by Yacht.de and for what I can tell they were impressed. If someone is really interested on the boat the test is available in PDF on line (in German) and their tests are among the best.

A new look: We stay with the pictures a movie in English with a strong French accent and another short one that shows how easy and comfortably the boat goes at a fast cruising speed.

Extreme series: Today's most impressive images



Alinghy dominated and leads. The boat that was hit violently (Realstone) will come probably in second since it was not their fault and the points will be redressed according with their previous average performance that was a great one. They are repairing that big hole during the night.

Impressive: Two Swiss boats on the lead...and they only have lakes
