    Spindrift 2 Jules Verne 2018

    When they were both in the southern ocean at the same time (when neither got the record) IDEC came from behind spindrift, passed within 2 miles of them and sailed away over the horizon. you can find a video of this from IDEC.

    The owner is russian. boat is going to be very late.
  4. This thread gets started every year or so. The answer is a resounding absolutely not. The crashes after the drugs would lead to big periods of going slow, which would most likely occur at the most inopportune time. Most of these guys even go as far as not drinking coffee nearly as much while on the water as the roller coaster of energy is not worth it.

    New imoca boats

    No, The volvo 70 rule did not allow inclined pins. This is not true. Perhaps with tons of heel the fin would become a planing surface with a ton of gear piled at the back, but certainly no incline.

    Sealing dyneema rope in a thru-hull

    As usual, over complicating..... if they have a disk backing (glass or carbon) just put them thru the drilled hole (assuming monolithic, not cored) and use a wedge of wood to load them as your sealant of choice dries. You are done.

    which yacht designer ?

    I would hire Sam Manuard, in fact in the past I already have. He is one of the most talented designers (and underrated) of our generation. He actually sails as well as designing, so knows what you need when ocean racing. PM me if you want to talk about it.

    I think the point is that you could have bought 2 mod 70 for 3 million and per year running costs would be the same when you consider how many less guys you need.
