40ft Farr design, must be like a Farr 40, surely. Maybe the odd extra creature comfort but that would just keep the crew at a higher peak of efficiency, so maybe a bit better than the average Farr 40 what with that extra efficiency and all
Yeah, I wish.
Lets see - T keel - No. Swept spreader with square top - No, No interior - No. Nice, wide flat aft hull to promote planing and surfing - No. Large wardrobe of exotic sails - No. Modern hull with great from stability and light weight - No....
OK, maybe the other side of the coin then;
Shallow, wide and longish keel - with a Jandal - YES! Dacron Sails - YES! Inline spreaders on non taper mast and piss all rig control - YES! Lots of additional drag (Wind Gen, Solar etc) YES! Owner who's too ^^%$% lazy to remove all the cruising shit YES. Canvas work and clears to hide behind if its cold/wet - YES! Microwave for hot food, and even central heating - Yes!... Surely I'm doing better on this side! Oh Shit, this is a RACE????
