Re: Polish sailor completes circumnavigation in a 22ft sailboat

A bit more flashy than the boat a Hungarian circumnavigated in. This is him awaiting his Panama transit. We saw him a year and a half later in Thailand.

Yes, I kind of agree with you. Simply can't be true. No way. The guy's Polish! East Block, blah, blah, blah, commie, etc.

Come now! Where are all the experts who say things like, "that was very foolish of him...no experience...dangerous and hazardous voyage in an un$eaworthy boat. Heavens- what would Slocum say?!

Yes, you did miss a few vital things he was lacking- a big mouth, arrogance and piles of $$$ and wearing the demonic all black outfits like the "americas cup" types.

'Hope he writes a book about his voyage.

Re: Polish sailor completes circumnavigation in a 22ft sailboat

These are the two other Polish women that sailed solo around the globe:


Notice something in common? The boat used by both is a 28ft production cruiser of the same brand and model, a Polish Mantra 28. If I remember right, one of those boats had been already used by the designer, Polish Andrzej Armiński, for a previous circumnavigation.

He still makes the Mantra 28.

Not really. The citizens of Danzig (or Gydanyzk) were German speaking loyal subjects of His Majesty the King of Poland. Sadly, this tradition was gone in the age of nationalisms.

Well, that can't be right!

28' is too small, it has a fin keel so it's unsuitable for cruising in general and solo sailing especially ...

The boat was reinforced (mainly the boat structure) to be able to take the increased efforts from the keel.

The standard Maxus 22 does not pass the stability requirements for Class A and it is not an offshore boat. The ones that are interested in small modern offshore sailboats better have a look at the Django series:
http://www.mareehaute.fr/
There is a Standard 7.70 (25.2ft) circumnavigating and on high latitudes too (Patagonia):
Into the wind | La vie au fil de l'eau et du vent
That is a serious bulbed keel, helped with the upwind portions I'm sure.

Polux,
It is clear from the videos that many things are well-built in Poland.
Good luck and safe sailing.

Don't know if you are talking about the girls or the boat Polish women are certainly beautiful...and tall beside some being great sailors.

Regarding the boat, it is not well known that many European brands from another countries built their boats in Poland, that is a major yacht builder.

Those boats that circumnavigated, the Manta 28, are a very small production from a shipyard that build several other quality sailboats for another brands. They used to make the Finnish Finngulf (before they went broke), the British Broadblue cats, the Dutch Stila 44 and the German Format 40 catamaran.
OUTSOURCING

So I have no doubts that they know how to build sailboats neither that the Mantra 28 is a very good sailboat. After all there are not many designers that test their designs going for a full circumnavigation

Now the boat, being basically the same, has a new and more modern cabin design...but the big bulb on a considerable draft as well as the hull are still the same:


Kind of cute little boat
