    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    Yesterday I watched the Inshore Race and also The Wedding. What they have in common? Yachting started by Kings and Queens. Today rounding the weather mark at Castle Hill before being launched to the next leg.

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    More gap between the winner of today short inshore course than the 1mn.2 seconds of the 7000miles race from Itajai to Newport.

    what is it?

    No detail on the boat. But for myself makes sense to have the tip up instead of down.

    what are you?

    Out! Out of the water anyway. Bow design within the limits.

    Want to do a new design 30 square meter build

    Little Wood Boays. "Want to do a new design 30 square meter build". Sure. Do not recall the phone call; we did quite a few of the 36 and 38 Lobster yachts.

    Amati. Regarding the flat versus curved bottom. It is my understanding that the very original boats; 16' and 23' had flat bottoms and wall sided (1939). The following boat (1946), Hunt and Lawley the builder, curved the bottom slightly, both fore and aft as well as athwarships, rounded off chine and gunwale, and pulled the length to 35'-8"; to become 225 (sail area). Subsequent boats, 110; 210 are similar in hull shape. No study of resistance for flat versus rounded. I suspect that the curves ought be faster for overall performance. Considering the ballast ratio advertised at the time, my version increased the sail area. The boat was build overseas but burned in a barn fire before launching. I did another study for someone who insisted on a flat bottom on a very large boat, the project stopped there. Probably a good thing.

    fastyacht. More rocker. Probably, but possibly needed more displacement to adopt a decent interior.

    Eliboat. A little bit of both. Aesthetically, I do not think there is a middle.

    VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    I have not followed the whole situation about this tragedy. Having lost a good friend of mind overboard during the Whitbread era, I am wondering if in respect to the sailor's memory it would be more appropriate to finish the leg. Maybe there is more broken gear than spirit.
