Re: Small boat voyaging

Yeah the mini 650 guys have to be the definition of small boat voyagers, that class is growing strong though it lost the original intent, which was that it would be an affordable way for the everyman to get into offshore racing. Now a mini with full sails and electronics costs well over 100K, and that's for the production class not the proto.

I agree, but that is a new boat. They can find older and less competitive boats including protos for much less (much are there not to win but just to make it to the other side of the Ocean).

But the real spirit of the class is other: There are many top racers that make their own boats and some go further, designing them also. That's the case of the winner of the last transat. That makes the boats more afordable
