Re: Interesting Sailboats

Sap:
I'm inclined to think it's more of a windage issue than displacement. But I don't know. Certainly having more weight in the boat has to slow things down a bit. Heavier boats are also often less initially stable so that would work in their favor also. But I think motion at anchor is not the same thing as a boat sailing back and forth on its rode.

My guess is that the boat is home built.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

That boat has a beautifully fair hull - look at the reflections.

Too bad the same quality wasn't put into the design of the cabin top and the positioning of the ports.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Yeh I'm starting to thing it could be a home built, the closest I find might be a highly altered 1965 Bristol 27?

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Here's another pic. I think it's too high quality fibreglass work for home built built like a tank

Yes that rudder has be altered cut at the top and the sail drive the owner believes is not original either, that's obvious, just another thing that makes this boat so difficult to identify, I'm baffled.

4ème Challenge de Printemps 2014 : inscrits et classements (IRC 2)
Sunfast 3600 took the overall win, and looked pretty consistent - 1st and 2nd places, with the throwout being a 3rd in the final race. That 11th place and the three 4ths didn't help the A35's cause. However, it does say a lot about the people sailing the A35 that they're getting it dialed in pretty quickly. More quickly, it would appear, than JPK. And the MAT 1010 is truly a disappointment, particularly as this is exactly the kind of racing that boat was designed to excel in. Wonder what's going on with them.
