    The DNA F1x, Figaro III, L30 and Ran VII – Fast 40 have been shortlisted for the inaugural World Sailing Boat of Year Award.



    The World Sailing Boat of the Year Award recognises outstanding boat design, innovative concepts and ground breaking technological advancements that are changing the face of sailing, pioneering change across the world.

    A judging panel consisting of Gary Jobson - World Sailing Vice-President, Matt Sheahan – Head of Performance Sailing at Sunset+Vine, James Boyd – sailing journalist and Carlos de Beltran – World Sailing Director of Technical and Offshore reviewed the applicants before voting on a shortlist.
    The judging panel will vote on who should receive the Boat of the Year Award and the winner will be announced at the 2018 World Sailing Awards, set to be held on Tuesday 30 October 2018 in Sarasota, Florida, USA.

    Further information on each boat is below:

    DNA F1x

    An evolution of the F1 A-Catamara, the DNA F1x is the ultimate single handed boat. Incredibly fast, agile and powerful, the DNA F1x is optimised for aero, has improved ergonomics and is a demanding design with a high level of execution.
    Four point foiling was introduced on the DNA F1x with a Z-foil configuration ensuring the total design is fully optimised for stable and fast foiling upwind and downwind. Further improvements have been made on the tapered mast, hulls and beams and more weight has been added to ensure a stronger structure.

    Figaro III

    The Figaro Bénéteau 3 was designed for and with the top singlehanded sailors in the world.
    It is the first production foiling one-design monohull ever to be designed. A distillation of technology and innovation, group Bénéteau’s best experts and the Van Peteghem Lauriot-Prévost (VPLP) office, the architects of the last two boats to win the Vendée Globe, worked in collaboration to design the boat.
    At one of its first outings, the Figaro 3 took line honours in the Pacific Cup between San Francisco and Hawaii. Set for global distribution in 2019, with more than 50-boats on order, the boat will join the mighty Figaro professional racing circuit.

    L30

    The L30 was designed by Justin Yacht Design and was created to provide greater accessibility and affordability for yacht club members to sail both inshore and offshore.
    A fast, modern one-design with racing character, the L30 can easily be transported via a trailer with minimum maintenance costs. A spacious cabin and head make it suitable for racing as well as corporate sailing events and for use within sailing schools.
    Furthermore, the boat has the environment in mind with a sail drive electric motor that can operate in the hydro-generator mode.

    Ran VII – Fast 40

    Designed by Carkeek design partner and launched on 13 April 2018, Ran VII is a pioneering boat that continues the succession of Niklas Zennstrom owned boats named Ran.
    With a unique boat shape and electric powered sail drive system, Ran VII has won every race she has entered including the prestigious One Ton Cup where she scored an unprecedented six firsts and two second places.
    Ran VII utilises smart geometry to increase performance but the prototype electric sail drive system is a technologically advanced and was developed for environmental purposes that will pave the way for future developments.

          SLIPWAY IN SHALLOW WATER



          Extra for the L30 we have developed a Harbeck steel trailer, which makes it virtual pleasant to slip the boat especially in shallow water. The trailer is provided with a deep-seated tray for the keel bulb and divided axle, so only low water depth is needed to get the boat in and out of water.

          During slipway, the boat gets automatically centred by the tray for the bulb. The marker poles make it possible to slipway free of damage even in turbid water. The boat is perfectly bedded during transport due to the spaced out support plates connected with an extra long trailer-frame. The bow support solidly secures the boat when you have to brake all of the sudden.
          The support plates are laminated at the boatyard and get delivered to Harbeck.

          The deep centroid makes it easier both to slipway and to drive. Ashore the boat is comfortably low- rise, so it's easy to maintain. By choice the trailer is also delivered with a winch stand and integrated stairs, so wet feet might be a thing of the past.


          Basic or Advanced - optional

          Basic version
          - steel trailer, solid welded recktangle construction (deep centroid)
          - whole hot zinc dipped frame

          - solid supporting wheel at the trailer
          - Longlife brake cable assembly
          - removable and stretching light moulding, with extra plug-in connection

          - inner frame layed tracks, 13 -poled plug
          - galvanized rubber-spring tandemaxle including waterproof wheel hub
          - ball clutch 50 mm
          - bow support ahead

          Options for the advanced version
          - divided axles
          - deep-centred keel tray in the back

          - trailer prepared to adapt the manufacturers'spaced out support plates
          - 2 pair of guide pulleys lateral located at the keel tray to guide the lead bulb
          - stirrups/-ladder ahed at the bow support
          - winch with webbing and hook
          - in the back 1 Poly keel pulley 300mm as roller at the keel bulb tray
          - slipway device including 6 foamed wheel, head on centered to use to hoist the boat, so it's not getting scratched on the support plates

          - crush-resistant car wing with Aluminium groove sheet incl. centre support
          - spare tyre with mounting

            Winning Teamwork under the flag of Peter Gast Shipping



            The Farr280 is a real downwind rocket. In combination with excellent teamwork and highly motivated guests of Peter Gast Shipping, one Crewmember and Skipper the "4sale" managed to finish just behind two Volvo 60 Yachts, with a gab of 30 Minutes in front of the second yacht of her group after two hours sailing time.

            7. of 131
            1. of 15 in Gruppe 8 ORC
            1. ORC of 15 in Group B ORC
            1. ORC overall of 47 ORC-Yachts

            The Farr280 "4sail" was chartered by Peter Gast Shipping and joined the "Peter Gast Schiffahrtsregatta" second time. This race is the biggest privat organiszed sailing race event of the world. More than 130 yachts are racing together, more than 1000 Guests are joining the great event on the small isand Aerø at the evening.
            The Farr280 was the smalles yacht in the race, but with enormous speed potenzial. The crew was good prepared: The day before the 3 guest and two crew members met for training, and during the way out and waiting for wind they used all possibiities to improve thier crewwork. Due to this the start was great, and during the buoy manoevers they catched the inner position and managed to overtake 10-15 yachts at each mark rounding.

                INFINITI 56



                The Infiniti 56C from Farr Yacht Design is the first Dynamic Stability Systems-powered performance blue-water cruiser in this market sector. Whilst DSS has been used extensively in the racing yacht market and is now being used in the superyacht world, this is the yacht that genuinely changes the way we cruise.

                The Infiniti 56 will set a new paradigm for performance in this size range with the potential to sail at higher speeds and lower heel angles than any other yacht of this genre on the market today, whilst featuring improved sea-keeping thanks to reduced pitching. Simply put: shorter passage times; increased cruising range; reduced heeling; less pitching and more enjoyment for the whole family. In real terms this means passage making at speeds in the mid-teens with similar wind speeds.

                LOA 17.82 m
                Maximum Beam 5.00 m
                Draft 4.0 m
                Preliminary Displacement 12,500 kg

                    Mascalzone Latino Vincitore



                    26 October 2016 - The Royal Malta Yacht Club announced that Vincenzo Onorato's Cookson 50 Mascalzone Latino is the overall winner of the 37th Rolex Middle Sea Race. Whilst a number of yachts are still racing, none of them have the possibility of beating Mascalzone Latino's corrected time. The Mascalzone Latino team will be awarded the Rolex Middle Sea Race Trophy and Rolex timepiece on Saturday 29 October at the prize giving ceremony to held at the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta.
                    This race crew was a mix of Italians and British sailors who have raced all over the world under the Mascalzone Latino banner and with great success. Last year they came agonizingly close to adding the Rolex Middle Sea Race to the honour role. In the absence of owner, Vincenzo Onorato, the boat was skippered this year by Matteo Savelli. The afterguard included Adrian Stead, Lorenzo Bressani and Branko Brcin. Ian Moore was the navigator. The sail trimmers were Leonardo Chiaruigi, Pierluigi De Felice, Stefano Ciampalini and Andrea Ballico. Daniele Fiaschi and Davide Scarpa shared the bowman duties.
                    Matteo Savelli: “Twelve months ago we cherished the possibility of victory but it was not to be by a nine seconds gap. But our belief in success at this event was simply delayed until this year. And now, we can say we couldn’t expect more. Everything has worked properly and the job went off without a hitch. The crew commitment was remarkable; the only regret was the lack of Vincenzo Onorato onboard."
                    The 2016 Rolex Middle Sea Race will be marked in the ever growing race legend as a tactically demanding one, with huge pressure on the tacticians and navigators to keep the yachts moving in the face of changing conditions. “It felt like unfinished business after coming so close to winning last year,” commented Ian Moore, continuing, “but past performance is no guarantee of future success! We knew if we wanted a chance to win this race that we would have to sail really well and get a little bit lucky with the weather. In the end, our luck held, and the guys sailed really well despite tough conditions.”
                    Vincenzo Onorato of Mascalzone Latino: “I am really very happy for this victory. We have quite the same crew for many many years. We won together six Worlds titles, I can’t remember how many Europeans and many of the most important major regattas in the world. The Rolex Middle Sea Race is the pinnacle of offshore racing in the Med. We were looking to win for a long time and finally we have proudly succeeded”.
