Re: Interesting Sailboats

I happened across this boat when I recently visited the yard in Delaware where my boat is stored this winter. I kept walking by it and it definitely caught my eye even though my taste doesn't usually run to anything quite this modern looking, so I asked the marina owner about it. He said it was a custom build, designed with a kevlar sandwich hull designed to not be holed even if sailed into a reef at 6 knots. Who knows if it can actually do that but apparently it's a very ruggedly built hull and I found the listing on yachtworld to look at the pictures. I just bought a Tayana 47 and am happy with that so am not in the market for a boat, but if I was looking for a 50'-55' boat for long distance cruising, I'd want to take a really good look at this one. It's different, but I think interesting.

I tried to post a link but don't have enough posts to be allowed to do that yet so if you go on Yachtworld and look up an Atlantis 56' sloop in Delaware I'm sure you'll find it OK. What are your impressions?

That's a nice looking boat. But there are lots of nice looking boats. You own one that was designed by a good designer ( ahem). I hope you are enjoying your boat. Don't let fashion and fads distract you. The sea doesn't recognize fashion.

Absolutely great designer! As you know, I loved my Nordic 44 when I had that and am looking forward to getting our Tayana back in the water about 6 weeks from now once my wife finishes school. It's been a long winter.

This Atlantis boat isn't quite my thing but I just thought it was very interesting and looked like a good value for someone searching for that sort of boat. I'd never ever hard of gimballed helmsmans seats before but they might be pretty nice!

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.
I am confused. When I looked it up, there was a whole other ranking. The same Archie still has on its site with a dominant win for the A35: CHAMPIONNAT DE PRINTEMPS LA TRINITE SUR MER ( suite)

Puzzling. I don't understand the discrepancy. If you go to the following page, and select IRC-2 from Résultats généraux, you get a different scoring, with the SF3600 taking the overall:

4ème Challenge de Printemps 2014 : inscrits et classements

On the above page, the A35 scoring is as follows:

4-(11)-4-4-1-1-1-2-1-1 = 19 pts

For the SF3600, the scoring is:

2-2-1-1-2-2-2-1-2-(3) = 15 pts

But the scoring on the A35 blog page is clearly different. Only the TSM race committee can explain why they are different.

Regardless, the A35 is clearly a fast boat and the JPK is still getting up to speed. No idea who is sailing the MAT 1010, so I won't comment on whether the boat is capable of winning with its rating, which I recall someone saying is rather harsh.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Take in consideration that the name is the same (4ème Challenge de Printemps) but there are 4 racing weekends (I think they are 4) so the results from each weekend are different.

Sure? I think it is just one weekend with 10 races.
