Sailing World Boats of the Year
 
Sailing World released their boats of the year last week.

Some nice rides in there. I am a fan of Seascape myself. Probably not the 18 but, the 24 is a nice hotrod.

I was happy to see the C&C 30 O.D. and Redline 41 in the running.

The C&C 30 OD looks really slow - with all that meat on the rail she was still burying her nose. And let's hope this 2016 roster with the G4 saves Gunboat.

I am not thinking the C&C 30 OD is slow....

PHRF of 30. 18 Knots. Maybe they lied? Or maybe that's slow to you?

I was aboard FreakyFast in Newport a couple of summers ago. They claimed to pass 17 knots on a beam reach going under the Newport Bridge. I believe them.

Hey - I'm just saying the boat in the video looked slow. And it did. Any boat can be slow.

In any case, at $125K a pop for the C&C and growing competition from far cheaper and faster foiling multi-hulls...good luck with a burgeoning OD fleet.

You did see that the C&C is rated for offshore racing? Gulp.
