Re: RC 44 Series

Impressive.
The difference is, the AC boats would have never raced in that much wind.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paulo.. We thank you for your efforts here on this and other threads, and wish you the best in continuing your blog as you and others enjoy your passion for this topic. The door will always be open to you, as they say, should you see your way to returning.

But folks, let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater..

We understood Paulo's requests but we cannot moderate any particular thread in a manner which affords any member unique privileges that are not afforded the other members, nor can we quash any members' basic rights in a public forum. Backchannel efforts were made to attempt to restore decorum but they ultimately failed. (Truth be told, they blew up in our faces)

While it's unlikely that others have the inclination to spend the enormous time and effort Paulo put into this, there's no reason why this thread can't continue is some form, hopefully in the spirit of its original intent.

I will personally and forcefully oppose any such bashing. Bashing folks is never what this thread has been about, and now is no time to start.

It looks like their verdict is very clear: The JPK 1080 is fast. Very fast. In fact, very, very fast.

To summarize the blog regatta round-up: On the delivery trip from Lorient to Trinité, in breeze topping out around 30 knots, the JPK was planing smoothly and consistently under Code 5 at speeds of 12-16 knots, topping out at 17.92 knots. Smiles from ear-to-ear among the crew of 8.

Saturday's first race of the regatta saw 12-15 knots and the JPK 1080 was lined up in IRC 2 against the Jeaneau Sunfast 3600, the new Archambault 35 and a host of other top boats. The JPK and SF3600 are leading at the last leeward mark rounding before the SF3600 either luffs hard or broaches (not entirely clear) with the kite up, dropping both boats from 1-2 down to 3-4 at the finish. In race two, the JPK settles down and wins the race.

For race 1 on Sunday, the breeze is up to 16-20 knots, and everyone is switching from medium to heavy jibs. In these conditions, the JPK is really showing her speed, hanging right up with the J122 and Archambault 40 in IRC 1. Unfortunately, one-third of the way up the windward leg the jib halyard block explodes, forcing them to drop the jib to the deck, rig a snatch block, and re-hoist. By this time they've dropped to the back - too bad, since they'd chosen the right side of the course. However, they managed to work their way back to finish only a minute behind in real time. Thus, even in the worst-case scenario, the boat still performs very well.

For race 2 the chop is strong and it's necessary to find a spot among the IRC 1 boats on the start line. The JPK gets off at the lower end of the line and is forced to go further left than they wanted, as the right side appeared favored. Both the SF3600 and the A35 are also caught out to the left, and everyone overstands the layline. Ultimately, the jib halyard lets go in the clutch going upwind and this allows the competition to get away, leaving the JPK to finish in third place.

In summary, the boat goes fast; indeed, very fast, because even without having any of the calibrations established, the JPK was still battling at the front of the fleet. One must also consider the fact that they were using a borrowed 2011 mainsail from an M34, pending the arrival of their new Ullman main! So all in all, everyone went home very satisfied indeed.

MrP: Very impressive indeed, particularly the fact that they were hanging with the J122 and A40 upwind (assuming those boats are being sailed close to their numbers). If you're in IRC 2 and going upwind in the thick of IRC 1, you're going quick. And downwind in those conditions you should be able to smoke most of the IRC 1 boats. Looks like another winner from JPK.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Usually when we are talking about adventure yachts for high latitude sailing, we are focused on French-built aluminium boats of 13M or more. Here is a video about UK sailor Roger Taylor's "new" junk-rigged Corribee 21 "Mingming 2", which he uses for extended voyaging in the high northern latitudes.


This thread's focus on performance cruisers might make one question why such a boat should be included here. But listen to Taylor's discussion of his modifications to the boat and to the junk rig, undertaken precisely to increase its performance in the typical lighter wind conditions encountered in the northern latitudes during peak cruising season. He estimates that the addition to the boat's waterline length and increases to the camber in the junk sail panels, will yield as much as 1 to 1.25 knots of increased average speed over the course of 24 hours, resulting in as much as 1,500 more miles of potential cruising range over his typical 67-70 day voyages.

Such a boat represents a very compelling option for those who desire to explore the higher latitudes but who lack the budget for a fully-fitted, aluminium-hulled adventure yacht. Obviously, you will forgo some creature comforts, but "Mingming 2" is able to carry food for up to 100 days, and presumably adequate water for the length of voyage Mr. Taylor usually makes. Very interesting indeed.

You forgot to mention that you have to be nuts as well.
