  1. https://www.greatcaperace.com Not seen yet in the forum. Look like an interesting proposal. No idea who is behind that but it’s not really the best period to launch a new format. only doubt is the limitation for boat dimension... why? I think that in the 50 ft range there are several potential contenders. Let’s see...
  2. There was a 100 m sloop concept from Dubois... according to some old interview it was close to production but they never started ( even the potential shipyard was never disclosed): https://www.charterworld.com/news/impressive-101m-sailing-yacht-design-380-dubois-largest-yacht-project
  3. From the front page: https://sailinganarchy.com/2020/05/28/perfect-2/ My Song V? R/P and Nauta are always there... but Royal Huisman and Aluminum build can suggest is not her. Any rumors out there?
  4. Smaller (60 or below) means also a more physically demanding boat and I don’t think it’s the case for the owner. My thoughts. If it is a retirement I’m really sorry... for sure was the most active team in the maxi yacht category .
  5. With Comanche, Arca SGR (former Wild Thing), Blackjack and Rambler around, a really interesting season is taking shape in the Med. Hope this shitty Coronavirus will not smash everything...
  6. Is not the first time they had issue with the masts. The first funnels release was badly oriented on the third mast base. Carbon fiber definitely didn’t like so much heat... Later on the funnels were modified (as they are today) with a Y shape to reduce the exhaust flow on the mast surface. Also today if you look close at the base of the third mast you can clearly see some later patches

Russian interests make me think to a possible Esimit Europa 3. Esimit Europa 2 was the former Alfa Romeo 2 (now Black Jack) and duri

  10. The boat that will stay in one piece is going to win...
  11. https://www.giornaledellavela.com/2019/05/28/my-song-disperso-affondato/ It’s in Italian, anyway they say that there are some rumors about a next boat. They also say that at 68 years maybe he doesn’t want to wait too much.
  12. Moving on after this sad story... Any suggestions for My Song V? what are you going to choose in Mr Loro Piana shoes? some hypothesis considering the racer spirit of the owner : An improved Baltic 130 from same molds as My Song IV Brand new project from R/P and Nauta Clubswan 125 Wally cento Going smaller like a Maxi 72 or a more gentle Botin 80 What else? I see option 1 as the fastest and more suitable. After some years on the water they know what was ok and what need to be reviewed.
  13. According to the article they have in plan a busy 2021: - giraglia - fastnet - middle sea race - Sydney to Hobart
