Our test boat has now been in the water in Copenhagen for 4 weeks. Some training has been done. You can never be to prepared:-)
We had our first regatta Saturday, 90 boats for a 25 nm course round Øresund.
Unfortunately, it was a very calm day. For the first 15 nm we had 5-8 knot tws and then completely calm. Nobody made the finishline inside the time limit.
That said The Beast was very fast, only boats like the Soto 40, X-41, IRC 42, Maxfun 35 and Italia 11.98 was in front us. XP 44, XP33, Sunfast 3600 and similar were left miles behind.
The Beast was sailing doublehanded, all other boats in the start were fully crewed.
Next up is Brassfahrt Regatta in Travemunde, 100 nm singlehand race, starting Friday 26. of May.
The boat will be in Trawemunde the days before and after the races, ready for a demotour. Please contact me if you want to test the boat.
The Beast has been measured for ORC and certificate will hopefully be ready this week.
