Sorry did not register that the first time I read it. But the Tartan 37 would still be over a foot too long.

Good grief, Charlie Brown, this is nutz!
The 2022 race will be sailed in Joshuas only! Now that should be a lot of fun! My wife would like to do that one, if we can find her some sponsors and I'm willing to be alone for 8 months. Still discussing it.
I believe both 18 & 22 are limited to navigational equipment available at the time of the original race, and no outside help for weather or routing beyond whatever the race organizers provide.
Back to basics, for better or worse.

Re: Golden Globe boat pick?

This guy seemed to do ok with a full keel traditional boat, granted it's a little bigger then the boats in discussion but still good daily runs.

Re: Golden Globe boat pick?

I've met one of the skippers, who has been prepping his boat (a Tradewind 35) locally here. Thing is built like a tank. Link here: Istvan Kopar | Sailor, Author, Solo Circumnavigator ? Official site of Captain Istvan Kopar, Solo Circumnavigator, Entrant in Golden Globe Race 2018, and author of Kihivas: Alone at the Ends of the Earth

Should be interesting to follow.

Well, then they should allow home-made, hastily thrown together trimarans.

Would you add any other boats to the list? And what boat would you add if you weren't restricted by keel design?
Mine.

But if I had to choose from the list, the Rustler 36.

Channel cutter 34 by Lyle Hess. One of my favorite boats. Cape George. Annie. Sarah. Any small Colin Archer. Valiant 32.

Re: Golden Globe boat pick?

Tashiba 36 would be my pick from the supplied list.

Honestly, not sure about the amazement displayed in this thread. Most of those boats are extremely well proven, having already completed long distance passages for going on half a century, and who knows how many circumnavigations.

I mean, compared with what the original GG race was using, these boats are space shuttles.

There is a HUGE difference between a leisurely cruise around the world and race, much of which takes place in the roaring 40's or screaming 50's!
No "weather windows" or "hey, it's getting a bit breezy, let's reef" here. At least not if you want to win!

Re: Golden Globe boat pick?

I'd vote for the Baba, HC and the Rustler. It will be a race of attrition, both in boat and captains...
The heartiest will win. Not the fastest.
Another poster mentioned my old mate Jeff Heartjoy who single handed a Baba 40 round the world a short time ago.
It was interesting to follow Jeff as he had to fix many systems while underway. I think the winner in this race will be the guy who will be able to keep a "NON" CE rated boat going...
