deeper keel.....https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=2298988676886424  

7m keel.. yikes

The real question is how deep you would make the keel on a 92-93 foot version of rambler built in 2019 if you wanted to sail it with a bunch of Volvo ocean race veterans.    And what color y

Which one of 4 to 5 continuous furling lines.... or all

Probably only 2 or three bungees. Bungee length is relative to drum diameter, number of wraps needed to furl the sail, and deflection of furling line off of the normal run, not the length of the furling line itself.

 

I would say one each for P/S prodder furlers, and one for jibs, depending on leads of furling lines into pit, and whether they're spliced in place or laid on the side deck.

All furlers are continuous single line furlers.... long enough to reach whichever powered winches are free

The big girl was never built to win inshore races or even long races on rating.

Her only purpose in life was to set records, (in record setting conditions).

Not really even guaranteed to get line honours in a slow race,  but get her out there in a race with those record setting conditions and it will take a very special boat, (in special conditions), to break her record!

why is skorpios not at the maxi rolex cup ? 

was wondering the same. Skorpios would probably suffer a similar fate to Comanche in the W/L conditions but .. the Big C did barely beat Rambler in the 3rd race... but nowhere near on corrected time, i think it was under 1 minute elapsed. Waterline alone Skorpios would have had the line every race.

When you look at it, Rambler is a very well sailed boat that is sorted out and sailed by her regular crew who know the boat very well.

 

Comanche is a well sorted boat, But with mostly a totally new crew and owner who haven't had the time on the water to learn the boat and sail her to her potential. 

 

I would off loved to have had the old crew of Comanche  on board and seen how much faster Comanche could have been sailed in this regatta.

We'll see all 3 boats in the Rolex Middle Sea Race starting October 20th. Skorpios, Comanche and Rambler 88. That should give the boats a chance at a long distance race. Usually has a bit of everything and can be light at the start and getting out of the harbor. Huge spectacle with over 100 boats which is down on previous events to be expected
