NZ Coastal Classic 2017

Recommended Posts

The West Coast of USA is no longer the last bastion of large Multis sailing for fun.

While Sean Langman came and played in NZ for one Coastal, The Beau Geste team has arrived in town with the new boat. I understand it was a Phaedo? And Spithill is on the Orma (ex Vodafone Sailing).

Plus there are a heap of other multis for the 120 mile dash up the coast

she's Phaedo 3, an improved MOD70, which racked up about three dozen major and minor records over the past few years and won overall honors in most of the races she competed in.  

In anything but ultralight weather, she destroys any ORMA...if the crew is up to snuff and filled with people who know big multis.  Otherwise, she breaks or flips!

Will be interesting to hear whether it was experience or boat that was the reason. Simon will be happy (and Jimmy won something this year!). Charleston having another blinder - they do every year. This is a modified F28 for those watching. Those guys are awesome!

The relatively lower wind conditions of the recent Transpac suited the overpowered ORMA 60 much better than the more offshore oriented MOD 70. Or so I've been told.

I continue to be very impressed with the performance of the 8.5m class cats. I cant think of any other boat of any type anywhere that offers anything close to the bang for the buck. Many of the boats are of plywood construction, some are designed and built by their owners and yet, looking at the finishing orders they all appear to perform similar to the many Fast 52/TP 52 monos where the mainsail alone probably cost as much as some of these boats.

No ,as far as I know Cadillac is still in Perth ...she is a Barrett 30 built by Burvrill / Windrush . ?? originally had winged deck but cut off during construction ...there is some communication from one the crew and some great footage  as well on SA.  This is a Barrett 35 built by Van Munster in Morriset NSW and her name is Young Guns.....possibly another build coming .       third in div and 3 on line in division .  13 hours
