  1. Interestingly, it's a Sunfast 3600 still ahead of the fastest 3300 in the first leg of the Transquadra from Lorient to Madeira, but it's been light and upwind so far.
  2. It's probably because Sunfasts and JPK's are specifically designed for this race!
  3. Copa del Rey can tell you a thing or two. https://regatacopadelrey.com/resultados2021/resultados2021.php?ln=sp
  4. It's not over till the fat lady sings and I may be am biaised, but if anyone can pull a trick in the area it's Alexis Loison on Léon. Not only is he from Cherbourg and this is his backyard, he also is a Figaro sailor who escaped the fleet in the Alderney race and won by a huge margin. Edit, looks to me they will go through it again, give a massive advantage to local knowledge (Leon & Raging Bee)
  5. A successful SORC 3200 owner (Fluke?) went through the same process, and thought it would be a good idea to use the proceeds of his SF3200 sale to buy and refit a J/105 for the same program. It turned out to be a bad idea both in terms of budget and competitiveness. Two nice boats but not from the same era. I fnd the 3200 fugly but it's a better boat allround.
  6. It is, most of the French 99 are set-up with a sym.
  7. CH-Cowes is a 10-12 hours crossing Northbound with 2 full lateral tides, meaning you don't have to compensate and pick your way into the Solent. Le Havre or St Malo are a whole different story.
  8. SF3200 can be found fof 80k, Sunfast 32 @ 35K
  9. On her way to becoming the fastest lass around the world. Way to go Clacla!
  10. Actually, if home is the Solent, Cherbourg is a lot closer than Plymouth and has a neutral tide!
  11. I am 182 cms and do not have standing headroom in the J/99 or sitting headroom at the chart table, which was slightly disturbing. The best IRC short-handed 30ish footer is hands down the JPK 1010, it's fast, well-thought, has plenty of headroom and comfort features.
  12. SF 3200, SunFast 32, First 31.7, Elan 310....
  13. Dutreux! "Le jeune branleur" just crossed the line 28 hours after Bestaven what a feat!
  14. Voador,Juliette, Fluke and Diablo J have done extremely well offshore short-handed on our side of the pond, so I'd say yes. If you're doing coastal & day races, A J/92 would tick all the boxes while being easier to manage and more nimble.
  15. Instead, we're missing all-day breakfast and a pint, which is a lot worse!
