• L30 | vad tycker vi om den?

    Veckans läsarfråga.

    Vad tycker ni om denna Slovenska? L30.

    Cruising och hardcore racing. Hittar inte många liknande paket om J-båtarna ligger utanför budgeten

    Jag såg den på Düsseldorf 2016 och tänkte att konceptet liknade HP30… Såg att man samlat till klassmästerskap i somras, men det verkade lite osäkert hur många av båtaran som seglades av “riktiga” ägare.

    Ser ju ut att kunna seglas fort i alla fall…

  • Till salu just nu?

    Vid den här tiden på året så brukar det bli en del kul båtar till salu.

    Här är ett bra exempel. Leif Andersson säljer sin Seaquest 36 (Blocket). Jag tog en del bilder när jag först fick span på båten 2007.

    Xp-38 Yolo ligger också ute och Swan 45 Stell ryktas också vara på marknaden.

    Bidra gärna med era tips i kommentarerna.

  • Sweet… Tison 48 Elida

    Thomas Tison är en kreativ designer som bland annat jobbat för Artemis. Följ Thomas på Instagram.

    Jag spanade ju in hans scow på Düsseldorfmässan för ett par år sedan. Han hade även en Class 40 på ritbordet.

    Nu verkar det i stället bli en genlemannaracer till en tysk ägare.

    Många saker som känns rätt här.

    Hull lenght: 14.75 m
    Hull beam: 4.55 m
    Max draft: 3.2 m
    Main: 77.4 sqm
    Jib: 60.8 sqm

    Målvikt är 7.8 ton på tom båt med 3.45 ton bulb.
    Kan säkert variera beroende på vad inredningen landar på.

    Man verkar ha tänkt mycket på vikten med däck i kol, ingen innerliner, 40 hk Lombardini och lättast möjliga system för el, vatten och annat. Thomas skojar lite om hur man kan spara 500 kg på en IMOCA. Måste ju betyda att något inte var optimalt från början.

    Vi bollade lite kring olika byggtekniker…

    We have compared the hull construction methods on a like to like basis, for a 75sqm hull prior to arriving at this solution:

    Carbon sandwich (Nomex core): 470kg
    Carbon sandwich (foam core): 520kg
    Eglass sandwich (foam core): 590kg
    Spruce single skin with carbon stringers and mahogany veneer (2mm thick): 785kg
    Red Cedar Strip planking: 1.035kg

    S.Y. ELIDA was created via discussion with her owner, an offshore racer with a taste for classic timber yachts. The vision of her owner was to create a true offshore racer cruiser, with all the recent advances in deck, rig and sail systems and construction methods found on the latest racing yachts but with a lightweight interior able to accommodate a family for short cruises and a timber hull construction and appearance.

    We have devised a new construction method which results in a remarkably light and stiff hull for a timber construction, of less than 1t.

    The hull shell is built from carefully selected spruce planks at +/-45 degrees and is supported by a network of closely spaced carbon continuous stringers. The material testing conducted at an Airbus facility, the density based material selection conducted by Jachwerft Koenigstein and the development of a specific lightweight epoxy based adhesive ensure the hull was built with the best possible available materials.

    Due to the nature of this project, which maries both advanced composite components and high quality timber construction, TTYD early on proposed to assemble the skills of two yards. Jan Bruegge Bootsbau (Jachtwerft Koenigstein), based in germany, for the hull construction and assembly, and a specialist composite yard for the construction of the carbon parts (structure and deck).

    INTERIOR ARRANGEMENT/ RACE MODE

    In race mode, the forward cabin sole can be removed and the forward bed folded up and out, making this area ideal to store sails. Mattresses in the aft cabin can be removed and replaced by pipe cots, to provide sleeping capacity and the possibility to stack equipment/ sails when sailing. The chart table is placed remotely from the main action, the navigator can communicate with the cockpit via a dedicated portlight.

    The navigation seat slides from tack to tack to ensure the navigator weight is to windward at all times. The interior arrangement was planned for using a spinnaker chute, creating a clear path between the foredeck hatch, wide opening in the mast bulkhead all the way to the aft watertight bulkhead. The table flaps, when closed, have a well rounded top edge without sharp corners to facilitate sail movements. The wet locker storage is heated, and the heating can be directed to a hand warmer by the galley.

    INTERIOR ARRANGEMENT/ CRUISE MODE

    The interior arrangement is an evolution of ELAN. It is unique in a sense that the navigation area is placed aft of the companionway, similarly to what offshore racing yachts do. This solution offers several benefits. Firstly it frees the space on starboard to create an “entrance unit’: This unit can be used for the electric panel, yachts papers, and above all a large, easy-to-access heated wet gear locker. Secondly, it frees the space for better movement around the companionway and to access the two aft cabins.

    With the now wider hull shape, two symmetrical aft cabins were placed under the cockpit. A center console contains the engine and diesel tanks. Above this center console is a fabric storage which divides the two cabins visually. The choice was made to open the aft cabins to the main living area. This makes for an improved impression of space, and better ventilation. In the saloon area, a table hides the lifting keel structure and accommodates between 6 and 8 people.

    The lower sofas on each tack are wide enough to be used as sleeping berths, the backrest can be lifted up to create additional sleeping capacity further up. Forward of the mast bulkhead is the heads compartment. Relatively large, it offers a shower floor area of 600 x 800mm. Space for a canting toilet was allowed for.

    Opposite the heads compartment is a storage area, made of removable boxes which can be filled or emptied at home and brought in the yacht ready for use. It compensates the relative lack of storage space under the cockpit and offers better and easier access to the items stored. In the forepeak, a master cabin with a “V” berth can be found. Overall this yacht can sleep up to 10 people and is ideally suited for cruises for 4-6 people.

  • Coutts & Ellison startar SailGP

    Senaste greppet från Coutts & Co. En mix mellan America’s Cup (båtar + seglare) & Extreme Sailing Series (format). Frågan är hur stort utrymmet är där, och hur man ser på affärsmodellen. Är det tillräckligt prestigefyllt för att miljardärer skall tycka det är värt besväret utan prestigen i AC, eller möjligheten att segla själv (Extreme Sailing Series, M32 eller GC32)? Eller om man kan attrahera sponsorer på en ganska mycket högre nivå än de andra formaten.

    Time will tell.

    Inget fel på ambitionsnivån i alla fall.

    On 03 October, 2018 SailGP set out to redefine sailing with the launch of its new global racing league: five grands prix featuring six national teams on identical wingsailed F50s – the world’s fastest, most technologically advanced catamarans. Spearheaded by Larry Ellison and Sir Russell Coutts, in season one, SailGP will bring electrifying inshore racing to fans in Sydney; San Francisco; New York; Cowes, U.K.; and Marseille, France, as world-class crews compete for the championship trophy and a $1 million purse.

  • Midsummer Solo by Båtagent stöttar Ryking

    Micke Ryking kommer att segla Route de Rhum med en stor Midsummer Solo-logga!

    Det är Båtagent, som var delaktiga till att göra första upplagan av Midsummer Solo Challenge till en succé, som nu tagit största delen av ett nytt storsegel. Privatpersoner samlade samtidigt in 50.000:- via ett bra supporter-initiativ på Facebook. Starkt jobbat.

    Anders Hultman på båtagent säger: “vi på Båtagent kunde inte motstå frestelsen att gå in som sponsor i detta urfranska soloraceevent, kanske kan vi få med några franska stjärnor till den Bohuslänska skärgården nästa sommar? Micke har dessutom lovat hålla ett fördrag om sin segling i samband med Båtmässan i Göteborg, vilket vi ser fram emot. Nu hoppas vi bara att han och båten kommer fram i ett stycke i denna stenhårda solosegling.”

    Det är grymt kul att Micke ger sig på denna utmaning, som många av oss bara drömmer om att göra. Och det kommer att bli extra kul när flottan lämnar Saint-Malo och man kan se en Midsummer Solo Challenge på en av båtarna.

    Fransmännen lär undra vad det är.

    Det är också roligt att Anders och Båtagent fortsätter att engagera sig i solosegling. Utan dem hade inte Midsummer Solo Challenge blivit så bra som det blev, och vi ser nu att de vill bygga detta race långsiktigt”.

  • MidsummerSail 2018

    Här är ett race, MidsummerSail, för de som gillar att segla långt. Och länge. Från Wismar, som tydligen är sydligast i Östersjön till Töre hamnfestival så långt norrut man bara kan komma. Man skriver på sajten:

    Töre is a very small place. Its has a camping site with a little harbour.

    900 distans.

    Rekordet är 6 dagar och lite mer än 12 timmar… i år gick det långsammare…

    Bara en båt som gick i mål; soloseglaren Thomas Woithe i sin Dehler 35 cws.

    Tiden?

    11 dagar, 19 timmar, 40 minuter och 8 sekunder!

    Är man konstig om man tycker att det här verkar lite kul?

    The MidsummerSail 2018 is history – and what kind!

    There were 11 registrations, 4 have started, but only one has actually arrived at the finish line.

    I had not expected such a quota.

    It is said that the hardest thing about a regatta is to get to the starting line at all. There is definitely a lot of experience in this sentence.

    And of course I knew about the weather forecasts. Strong winds and rain have forced the sailors to the first stopover just after the start, only to then go into very light winds. As soon as the weather seemed to stabilise, the same fun started again.

    This way records are difficult to break.

    However, not all sail for the record, or the cup. They start to do something special. Something that just can’t be achieved with ease.

    Often, the Baltic Sea as an inland sea is not taken very seriously. Not to compare with the Atlantic, or the Southern Ocean.

    However, you should not be fooled. Anyone who has left Stockholm astern is very quickly overwhelmed by the size of the Gulf of Bothnia.

    Only very few Baltic Sea sailors have ever experienced this.

    Sailing through the Baltic Sea once in its entire north-south stretch is a real challenge.

    It is a privilege to stand victorious on the yellow buoy – and it must be earned!

    The MidsummerSail is not only the longest, but also the hardest Baltic Sea regatta – Long live 2019!
