And rig the tack line to gybe between them?  The articulated sprits on the mini's are pretty cool but I imagine as the boat gets bigger, that gets more difficult to successfully pull off?
Antrim 27’s have ‘em- on deck though

That is a crazy amount of sail area.  Close to J/111 sail area and bigger kite than the J/111 class kite, for a boat that weighs slightly more than half of a J/111.

Wondering what the wetted surface is, but I’m betting it needs the SA.  Thing is, compared to even old Santa Cruz school ultralights, it’s kind of porky.  But Finot understands boats that need lots of horsepower (ultra stable aircraft carriers!), and they have been successful for those who can manage them.

And then there’s this:

Isn't that a 12 year-old design by now?
As time goes by….  
 

Weird that things are getting heavier, but look at the weight of an Olsen 30, or an Antrim 27.  Maybe it’s a cultural thing.

Offshore.
I'm a little bit surprised they're allowed to use the name, was this the official boat that was never built? Or just a contender?

It has the feel of a Finot- it’ll work, big time.  Kind of a Finn-like design, in a way- big power, challenging to handle, will require talent, experience, training & massive fitness to sail well.

It is a boat for Olympians... not a beginner boat! It's a shame that offshore has been dropped, it would have become the true pinnacle of offshore racing truly international, the figaro racing is at a very high level but sadly it is still struggling to attract foreigners.

New fall shows: ACE 30, the IRC in seduction mode​


François-Xavier de Crécy On 07/31/21
To share :




Antoine Mainfray is firing on all cylinders. While finishing his Flow 25 (see elsewhere), he is continuing to build an innovative mini 6.50 in bamboo fiber (Floki 6.50) and is also having this very attractive scow built, designed for offshore regattas in IRC. This type of hull rules the roost in mini boats, is a hit in Class 40 and is increasingly influencing IMOCA hulls… So why not in IRC? The mysteries of the famous Franco-British gauge make the answer to this question quite complex, but Antoine Mainfray takes the bet – and he often has a hollow nose. Moreover, the leading boats of the Transquadra follow the same evolution. In any case, this Ace 30 is not lacking in looks and with a bit of luck, it will be ready for the Grand Pavois.

Well, that’s an impressive looking craft. (Saying this as one who appreciates traditional but the stability and interior volume, coupled with (presumably) good performance has a beauty all its own. I’d be quite curious to know more about the drawbacks or potential vices this design approach has. Likely, it doesn’t like light air nor a short chop upwind. What else?
