Re: Interesting Sailboats

This is a sad day, Paulo. But of course I perfectly understand your decision.

Bye bye, Sailnet.

See you on your blog, Paulo.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Impressive vocabulary. Anyone waiting for more?
Otherwise please keep on not posting.

This is meant to be an interesting thread. About sailboats.

I'm sure there must be a thread about...

Re: Viko 30s, the first of a new series, a change in paradigm.

Und dann das: Die Viko 30S ist deutlich flacher als die bisherigen Modelle, glänzt mit harmonischen Deckslinien und wirkt geradezu schick.

Re: Rm 890

I fully agree. Also for the Pogo 12.50, less pointing results in an equal upwind VMG but most importantly in a much more comfortable behaviour.

Best regards,

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Sir Perry,

This forum is about interesting sailboats. You’re a NA, so I appreciate your expert opinion. About interesting sailboats.

Not about the way Paulo runs this excellent thread. ...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Isn't 20% or 800 kilo's still quite a lot, even more than the weight of crew + full gear?

Re: Interesting Sailboats

The TP52's are very probably the most succesful "box" designs, but only for fully crewed daysailing up- and downwind between buoys. Without a nice clubhouse to chill down and a good hotel to recover,...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

I find this discussion about chines very interesting. And it seems to me that –once again- there is not a single answer.

On one hand there’s the Hunter 40’ concept, a boat that certainly is not...

I just noticed: 1.000 (one thousand!) "likes".
Congratulations Paulo and all the other faithful contributors to this excellent thread.

ISAF - AC:
It seems clear also to me that the 8-0 comeback of ORACLE was essentially a technical achievement. Since they did'nt break the rules, it wasn't unfair in this hightech event. But I...

Re: ARC - Gunboat 62

Here once again, reduce the reported speed of 19 knots by at least 1/3.
Of course still very enjoyable :), but in my honest opinion even more without cheating with the log.

As we unfortunately...

To swing a 2.2 ton keel there's not really any realistic alternative to hydraulics (and with a 3m draft there's also not really any realistic alternative to a swinging keel, but this is of...

Re: Aureus XV

This is a wonderful design Paulo, don't let me be misunderstood.
But I still would't even do the ARC with it unless I had an engineer on board :).

E.g. I wouldn't like the hydraulics to let me...

Re: in which conditions a staystail will give extra speed when the asym is up?

These are very fast, planing boats that can create a strong and especially sharper incoming apparent wind. So even at let's say 120° true they can still keep a laminar airflow around the sails...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

I think you’re right Robelz, at least considering asymmetric spinnakers and code sails.
Because the relatively small staysail can only add efficient sail area and give extra power if there’s...

Re: Aureus XV

I fully agree. A blue water cruiser should first be simple and efficient, with good back-ups in case of failure of all the gizmo's. Also the galley and saloon/nav configurations don't seem...

Re: Pen Duick Series and Eric Tabarly

Your'e very right to stress the importance of the Constantini family in Tabarly's career, Paulo.

Without their Pen Duick II design and Tabarly's OSTAR victory in 1964, his sailing career would...

Re: Going to a boat show

Absolutely!

Tabarly was and probably still is one of the most innovative sailors in the history or racing.

Apart from its specific design for the 1964 OSTAR, Pen Duick II also introduced some...

Re: Going to a boat show

That's a nice one, Paulo!
It's Pen Duick II, the very first purpose built racing yacht for the English Transat in 1964, that made the late Éric Tabarly a living legend.

By the way, he won this...

Out of thread, I know ;).
But since we are talking about racing, this can be entertaining and may be even useful :):
