So follow this one, and you will se what a Lagoon 380
Yes, I believe you are right. The doubt I raised meant no offense, just a possibility that I had seen on other boats in other editions. I remember a Island Packet
485 that had done once a "brilliant" start for some days
I have been following the ARC
for several years and I have not only saw that a condo cat well sailed can be fast downwind on the trade
winds, specially (if it has good medium or strong wind
as it is to be expected there) as performance monohull
cruisers are not slower than the cats on a Transat like this (generally speaking). The ARC+ is not a good one to see that since there are very few performance monohulls here besides the big ones that are on the lead and the Azuree 46. The ARC
, with much more boats will be a better one to see that.
Anyway that Lagoon 38 is making a fantastic race
, well ahead of many other bigger multihulls and monohulls of the same size.
Regarding the head
of the race we can see almost side by side a X 612, a Shipman 63, a Swan 651, a Fountain Pajot 67, a Catana 582 and just a bit behind a Catana 472 and an Azuree 46.
I would say that till now the more impressive performance are the ones from the Azuree 46, the Catana 472....and the one of the Lagoon 38. Congratulation to him, he is certainly a great sailor.
