"This is boring. This is all about interpretation and about English and logic."
In some parts of the world that is called "communication".

Re: Interesting Sailboats

People people people.. topic is " interesting sailboats" . I appreciate the designs of Mr. Perry and the likes of anyone who not only puts something that worx on paper but also car see it do what was imagined, run with grace. Kinda like Walter Schulz.

Thanks for that. But which Walter Schulz?
I fear I will shortly be banned. Someone has been complaining. I have been given a stern warning. I will ignore it. But for those few of you who have put up with me I appreciate your support.

The first real boat test with the Dufour 310

And surprisingly the ones I saw first are Italian ones but not surprisingly the one from Giornalle de la Vela is much better than the previous one.

The boat was sailed with a bit more wind, 10 to 13K on some occasions but mostly with weaker winds. With 10/13K the boat works perfectly on the configuration of main and small self taking jib offering a very good sail performance.

On this configuration, predictably, with very weak winds, the boat will need a code 0 to sail at a good speed (as has confirmed by the other test). On this one the boat confirms the very good impression I had regarding this hull that is just sweet.





The test results are very good. I will only translate what they say regarding sail performance. For the rest you can buy the magazine

Avventura, grandi velisti, test e grandi eventi: VELA di marzo! | Sail magazine - sailing news - regattas - Cruise

"The wind left to be desired but at noon a breeze appeared, between 10 and 13 knots in the channel between Portovenere and Palmaria . We begin to tack upwind to measure the speed : 6.5 average and when the gusts puffed the boat accelerated rapidly touching 7 knots remaining easy on the rudder , without risking broaching and maintaining the course without the need for corrections on the ruder that does its duty even though it is not particularly deep.

The boat heels slightly over its chine and even in what regards changing direction the boat has a good performance , the hull comes out of the tack and accelerates quickly to a good pace .

On a beam reach we got 7 knots. We did not have aboard the asymmetrical : nevertheless even without one downwind the boat maintains a good pace : 6.5 knots. "

Got it.
I was walking the dogs in the rain and thinking and it came to me,,,,,,, PEANUTS!
I'll take that as a nice compliment.

Being brought up in Australia I was taught to find some humor in everything.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paolo, are you intentionally being a confrontational ass or is your message simply lost in translation?

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paulo,
Ignore them. As you can see there is a group deliberately set out to f..k with the thread and you. Or they clearly miss out on communication.

Jpk 10.10

While we wait for the first JPK 10.80 movie, a nice one with a new JPK 10.10 sailed by a couple. First sail is always a great moment in any new boat and this one was just a nice sail for the first day out:

If this is about Bob complaining that I had complained regarding his attitude on this thread you should know that all that I asked was for him to be civil, stop calling names and insulting people, stop the paternalistic approach, stop with wise cracks stop to post meaningless posts and posts out of subject.

You should also know that this was the first time I complained about something or somebody ever and that some months back Bob (on another thread) complained harshly about me regarding a technical discussion with him about the use computational fluid dynamics (CFD) by top Nas to improve the performance of their boats. Even if I was always civil on that discussion and even if the moderation agreed that I was only engaging on a constructive debate I was asked by them, at Bob's request, to stop debating with him. They said to me that if Bob started to debate my points a similar message and request would be sent to him. That discussion with Bob was about a relevant matters regarding sailboat design, not trash talk, rude, irrelevant posts or wise cracks.

I believe you have no reason to call me a "confrontational ass", or maybe the message is more clear now

Regards

Paulo

Here you go again, with unsubstantiated claims.
Nowhere in this article is there a comment about the freeboard of the 22, or any other comparison drawn between the S30 and the S22!! Please point it out, if I missed it!
Maybe we should all just adopt the following rules:
1) Paulo is always right.
2) Should the occasion arise, where Paulo is actually wrong, then rule 1 will immediately go into effect.
