Re: Beneteau First 40 compared to Wauquiez Centurion 40s

Forgotten about this thread......

Amazingly enough, had a chance to sail on I believe Chillwales boat the first weekend in March doing a local race. have to say I was VERY impressed with how fast she sailed. Took 2nd in that race, both division and OA! This one does have the DEEP draft, as here in puget sound draft is not usually an issue.

Hopefully I can get out on her some more, when not racing my 30'r.

She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!

Re: Beneteau First 40 compared to Wauquiez Centurion 40s

I believe the truth will be in the middle with a dry weight at around 8200 kg.
For racing the Splendide shows good results on long distance racing...
First in ORC 2 on the Collin archer Memorial race 2010 (540 miles spinnaker up) see Stichting Colin Archer Memorial Race - Uitslagen 2010
and First in ORC 2 on Scheveningen-Brest (Race and Rally) in 2011, also making number one overall!
See: Brest 2011.
