Re: archambault A35

I don't own one, but on the interesting sailboat thread you can find lots of posts about the boat.

It is good, or should I say very good on the regatta field and is very good, or should I say the best in what regards solo or duo crew offshore sailing, unless you have a professional level and can handle a 40 class racer. But that one would be a poor boat on the regatta field

The boat is used both ways and Archambault can equip the boat in the more suitable way for each kind of racing.

It has also a good cruising interior, for a boat that is more a racer than a cruiser.

Regards

Paulo

Hi Paulo,

Thanks for your information. Now I am Hobie 16 sailor. I will co-own A35. We are going to race and cruise.

Thanks,
Ka Fai.

Re: archambault A35

I don't own an A35 either, but there are a few of them around the club.

As I understand it, they are basically a custom interior on a standard hull - you can order them fitted out as racy or cruisy as you like.

In race mode, as Paulo says, they are very competitive against other yachts of the same size - and usually win over the line - but they require an above-average crew to get the best performance and are not for the faint-hearted or the light-of-wallet.

Yes I agree, like in any really fast boat but this one you can set up for short crew or solo sailing with great results. The boat is the one that won more times the Transquadra (solo or duo transat for non professional sailors with more than 40 years old).

http://www.transquadra.com/

Archambault, due to the many guys racing solo has a big experience with the boat set up and can help with the rigging. They developed a specific rigging for it, with all the controls near the feet.

......

Kafai, that is a great boat for having fun and for cruising in a light way. After sailing the boat, please post your comments here:

Interesting Sailboats

We will be interested. As you can see the last post is about the new Archambault, the A27

Regards

Paulo

Re: archambault A35

We had one here for a season (Eastern Canada). It won nearly every race it entered under PHRF. The boat is optimized for IRC and does very well in PHRF as well.

Thanks,
