    Multi 50 specs/payload

    The multi50s in the last Route du Rhum looked like they had cabin space equivalent to a J24

    Spindrift 2 Jules Verne 2018

    Why is there a solid chance to cut 12% off the boat's previous best? (2012 record). Have they made some big changes?

    30~36 ft racer/cruiser/all things suggestions

    Is the budget $35k when upgraded to VI360 safety regs?

    The 2018 Golden Globe Race

    For the price of all the rescues, could the coast guards of the world just have bought everyone and IMOCA?

    Really cool trimaran for sale - no ad; not mine!

    If I recall correctly, Ian thought there was a huge problem with the bulkheads on the C36 to the point that they were unsafe. Are you modifying yours at all? The price on the Burrage 40 seems way too high. Who's buying it over something like this: https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2013/dragonfly-35-3231388/?refSource=standard listing

    Probably smashed up the boat to avoid being beaten by it in next VG.

    What happened the Maitre Coq from last Vendee Globe that had foils?

    The replacement foils would be lighter straight boards that could be loaded from the top like a beach cat. The masts cant so if you could get to protected water you could put the board on a halyard and get it in place. Maybe someone will just put a second straight dagger board case in the amas for emergency use only.

    Did all of the multi50s stop and none of the top 5 IMOCA?

    The bit of development that really needs to be done is replacing foils & foils from the top while at sea. Shouldn't be too hard to enginieer replacement C foils that can fit in the L foil cases from the top.

    FJ might get someone to buy him a new suit of sails for RTW race 2019.

    F7 Folding Trimaran...This is interesting

    $15k for a trailer and container shipping to US? I think two fit in a container.

    Route du Rhum 2018

    Is there a tracker with wind overlay like there was for last VG?
