sailaway21 That's a ship, not a boat. Quite handsome she is too.

TrueBlue I was on that boat, twice. The first time during the initial Tall Ships event in Newport, RI - think it was around 1977 or so. The second time in the late '80s, again during a Tall Ships event here on Narragansett Bay.

I have film photos somewhere which haven't been scanned yet - showing the crew furling sail from the yardarms - spectacular ship.

Giulietta OK this is by far the winner!!

Just like in the good old days, when the Portuguese Christs Cross sailed the seven seas, in the search of the sea routes.

Enjoy, we too have beautifull boats. This one is the N.R.P. SAGRES!!

Viva Portugal!!!




And Naked!!!

Giulietta Faster,

We don't really admire it.... first, its French, so by the time we open our eyes we already passed it!! second, its on the other end of our marina, were we rarely go. Believe me sails good but not fast.

Biases aside, G, that's interesting.

We have a Spirit 42 in our area, and it certainly has the beautifully classic lines and the racy underbody. However in a race last year it really didn't seem to shine. While it may have been the hand on the tiller, all the same it didn't appear to have great speed - a shame at 250,000 British Pounds list price.

But at least you (and everyone else) can admire the boat on a mooring.

Giulietta Well, that too!!

TrueBlue Admit it Giu, you just don't like the boat because it's French.

Faster While perhaps not the prettiest boat ever, this :

is another example of the "looks classic, goes fast" school of thought.

An ad in Novembers "Yachting Monthly" caught my eye - shows a fin/bulb keel sleek underbody and very classy lines. This is a french builder (Sorry, G)

camaraderie William...only when the ocean is like a lake! The boat is made for lakes and bays and day sailing in the ocean when conditions are not too rough. You should have a lot of fun on her and learn a lot!! Good luck & welcome aboard.
