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!  :thumbup: Oh Shit, this is a RACE????

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

It was a great sight to see this impressive looking fleet as we cruised past Navy Buoy.Attached File  A4BF0709-4B00-4996-BE47-DE520884A26F.jpeg   260.1KB   1 downloadsAttached File  052AD4F0-4ECD-4790-B1C6-1BA533CBC961.jpeg   235.35KB   0 downloadsAttached File  21B52DB8-50BA-4F83-816E-5E62AFD0BF2D.jpeg   210.3KB   0 downloads
