  1. Looks super uncomfortable to sit/hike out on. Almost square corners in the cockpit with small chamfer. Should have gone with a nice curve instead
  2. Give me virtual skipper over this any day of the week. So many more boats . Graphics so much better, sailing so much realistic. Just wish it was on phone too.
  3. Wow that looks very similar to stentecs last sail simulator. Hope yours takes off better than their's did though! Any chance of doing an android version as there's only 2 on there that are ok, both made by same developer, but 1 is a lot better physics wise but only has 1 course
  4. Mari cha 3 it was, 146 foot ketch designed in 97 designed by philippe briand this is the website for her. Pretty sure they were used as the radio relay vessel as the Young Endeavor was doing something else and were not in the actual race but held the 'passage record' they beat nokia by 2hrs. https://www.mari-cha.com/#specifications. Mari cha 4/samurai is 140ft designed by Mr Elliott. Iirc they couldn't build a sloop Rob as they didn't have manual grinders/winches at the time to handle anymore sail area so went with the schooner rig. During the refit they also removed the canting keel, might
  5. Was watching adventures of sailor girl live on Facebook. Gonna be bloody close. Neither going what the tracker shows I think!
  6. Must be the worst start by ricko ever! And then the port starboard with the Indian. What a disappointment to people who look up to them. I was hoping that they would win but don't think I can after that.
  7. Hmm I might try and get to the balmoral one!
  8. Totally different bow at least the topsides are. Where the hexagon pattern is it seems to cut back, like a bigger version of the Puma vor70 in the last VOR
  9. not trying to sound negative but that's a very bold statement to say it's the fastest hiker. Do you know how it would stack up against an Ns14 or something similar?Cheers rob
  10. Yep and when they changed to 100 ft almost all the 98fters added 2 ft to the boats. Iirc lahana was the only one that didnt
  11. Hmm263, just to clarify, mari cha 3's record was set in 99, not 98. This was the year that Nokia won line honours and smashed the race record as did brindabella for conventially ballasted boats (still holds this record) I wonder if rio will beat this record this year?

  12. R.I.P. Lou, sail on in peace knowing that you have influenced so many people.
