New boat in 40 knots

As you may remember we just got our new Antares 44 and we have been sailing her up the Brazilian coast. If you like to see her in 40 knots click on the link to my most recent post.

40+ knots of wind … How did we do? | s/v two fish

Looks like a ton more fun wet than she did on a trailer/dolly!

Re: New boat in 40 knots

Awesome video! You know you've got a good boat when you feel comfortable on her in those kinds of conditions.

Re: New boat in 40 knots

Just wondering - with the wind so far aft of the beam, why furl the headsail and run on the main? On our boat it gives the autopilot a much easier time to get rid of the main and sail on headsail only. The headsail also tends to lift the bows, where the main drives them down. I also noticed right at the start the boat rounding up a fair bit. Getting rid of the main pretty much eliminates this tendency.

The boat looked to be handling it well though.

She is not as stable as the days on the dolly but much more fun.

44 cruising cat...

Agree with the bias towards a jib for your reasons. I was surprised to see how kind she was with the non optimal sail plan.
