MAT Yachts announces their new model in collaboration with Mills design, the MAT1340. This 44’ IRC special is the result of an extensive R&D phase aimed at optimising under IRC both inshore and offshore and ended up with a solution significantly faster on corrected time than an aggressive ‘Mini-TP’ model. These features of medium/light displacement, fin keel, moderate sail area, and the option of twin rudders enable reduced crew numbers especially offshore. Mat Yachts: 'This is the fourth project with Mills design over 14 very productive years working together. Since the cooperation we have become successful worldwide with focus on high performance, cost-effective boat building, ensuring this new design has the best opportunity to succeed both inshore and offshore.' Sail world writes: 'So whilst the rules will continue not to favour the lightweight whiz-bang, it is important to remember that with the MAT 1340 you’ll have better behaviour and a kinder motion. It will be nicer to race, you have three full cabins and all the amenity that brings, a huge cockpit (especially without a pedestal), and it will still get up and be on the plane in a solid squirt. i.e. No ocean grading going on here.'

2020 RACE WEEK AT NEWPORT PRESENTED BY ROLEX For David Team (Newport Beach, Calif.), the owner of the TP52 Vesper, and Bill Ruh (Del Mar, Calif.) and Drew Freides (Los Angeles), co-owners of the Melges IC37 Pacific Yankee, the New York Yacht Club’s Race Week at Newport presented by Rolex is their first opportunity to race their boats in nine months or more. “It’s fantastic,” said Ruh, who helmed Pacific Yankee into a tie for first after four challenging races in shifty, puffy conditions on upper Narragansett Bay. “We couldn’t be happier with all the hard work the New York Yacht Club has put in to get us out on the water. We really appreciate the race committee doing their job and the folks on shore making it happen.” The Pacific Yankee team dominated the Melges IC37 Winter Series in Fort Lauderdale in late 2019 and early 2020, the last class racing before today. Today they picked up right where they left off with a pair of firsts in the first three races today. A slight bobble, a sixth, in the fourth and final race of the day allowed Chris Culver’s Blazer II team to pull level at the head of the pack, with 2019 National Champion Members Only in third, three points behind. But Ruh was more than pleased with Pacific Yankee’s start to the regatta. “We did well today because our crew did a terrific job changing gears, constantly working the boat, and we had fantastic tactical calls from Brad Rodi,” says Ruh. “It just all came together for us.” With just one main and one jib for all conditions, changing gears on the Melges IC37, says Ruh, is more challenging that on a boat that might carry three or four headsails for different wind speeds. “It takes more adept and synchronized work from the crew,” he says. “That’s where all the years we’ve spent sailing together is helpful. It’s a matter of having the main and jib trimmers adjusting to the runner tension and working in unison to change the profile of the sails to meet what we’re trying to achieve in boat speed or angle.” David Team’s crew on the TP52 Vesper found themselves in a slightly similar situation when the breeze exceeded their expectations for the day. “We had more breeze than we expected when we left the dock this morning,” says Team. “We only brought out our light-air sails. The second race in breeze was a little bit of a struggle with the lighter jib, but we persevered. We had some interesting starts in races 2 and 3, but were able to stay focused and sailing hard, and enjoy trading tacks with everybody, especially Victor Wild’s Pac52 Fox. All the boats seemed very well sailed.” Team and his crew won the first and third races of the day and finished second in the middle contest. But Wild’s crew is just two points behind after three races. And you never want to count out Hap Fauth’s Bella Mente, especially if the racing transitions from inside the bay to offshore later in the week. Fauth and team sit in third, seven points out of first. For the Vesper crew, however, the results were second to the opportunity to go racing again. Team shipped his boat east from Southern California early in 2020 to prepare for the ORC/IRC World Championships, which were scheduled for this week. That event was canceled in the spring, and Team didn’t sail his boat until a practice session on Narragansett Bay in late August. “The first year we raced her was 2018, against the Pac52 class in Southern California,” says Team. “Then the next year we raced under ORR in Southern Cal and decided to bring her east for the New York Yacht Club series of events and the ORC/IRC worlds. “So we’ve been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to come back and sail here. It’s been a challenging year, and it’s hard not to be happy with our performance today. We also have to give a shout out to the race committee for their work today, especially in such challenging conditions.” The third class, ORC 2, featured some of the closest racing of the day. Tom Sutton’s Leading Edge won the second race by a single second over Cory Sertl’s Das Blau Max. In the third race, it was New York Yacht Club Rear Commodore Paul Zabetakis’ Swan 42 Impetuous taking the win by five second over Leading Edge. With a win in the first race, as well, Leading Edge is living up to its name in the overall standings, two points ahead of Impetuous and seven points ahead of Das Blau Max. With three days of racing remaining, however, no lead is safe in this class where five of eight boats finished a race in the top 3 on Day 1. About the race Race Week at Newport presented by Rolex was created in 1998 by merging two popular events hosted by New York Yacht Club and Rolex: the IMS National Championships and the One-Design Championship Regatta. It was designed to give sailors the opportunity to compete in handicap-rated fleet racing during the first part of the event and one-design class racing during the latter part, and in subsequent years, the event has included the incorporation of significant events into its structure, having doubled as the Rolex IMS World Championship in 2000, the Sparkman & Stephens 75th Anniversary Celebration in 2004, Olin Stephens’s 100th birthday in 2008, and the Rolex US-IRC National Championship in 2010.This biennial race week is now in its 12th running, and has become a favorite of sailors due to the spectacular sailing conditions, unparalleled onshore hospitality and the great race management provided by the Club's all-volunteer race committee. While previous editions have featured two parts, this year all competing yachts will race at the same time with racing running from Wednesday, September 23, to Saturday, September 26.True race weeks are a rarity in today's time-crunched world and the Club is proud to keep that traditional alive with five days of activities and racing. Different course configurations and sailing areas, such as buoy racing and mid-distance courses, will make the week lively for competitors, while the Stadium Sailing will allow spectators to watch the racing from Fort Adams.

‘One of the coolest things we’ve ever done’ is how Adolfo Carrau of designers Botín & Partners recalls the Botín 65 racer-cruiser High Spirit Sleek looks, yes, but don’t be fooled – High Spirit is more than a stylish package. Design sister Caro finished runner-up in IRC 1 in a highly competitive 2016 Rolex Middle Sea Race on corrected time, finishing less than one hour behind the full-on lightweight DSS racer Maverick. Just two boats have been built to the Botín 65 design. One, Caro, has been very extensively campaigned but is still a beautiful yacht. The second, High Spirit, is barely out of the wrapper and ready to win. ‘We are usually approached to design pure racing boats and we seem to do very well in this high-end market niche,’ says designer Adolfo Carrau. ‘However, when a private owner calls us to design a fast and beautiful boat without comprom ises and forgetting about any rating or box rules, then it’s a dream come true! ‘This is what happened when we designed Caro and High Spirit, as both owners were interested primarily in having a very fast boat to enjoy with friends and a small crew, mixing cruising and racing around the world. ‘We had a blank sheet of paper to create a unique boat for each owner, and we had a great time with both! The build standard matches the latest TP52 or Maxi72 – the owner really wanted the very best.’ Built by the composite artisans at King Marine at the end of 2015, High Spirit is equipped for sale with an inventory that would flatter a superyacht of twice the size. Every thing about the yacht is to the highest spec imaginable: high-modulus spars and bowsprit, carbon 3Di sails and an electronics and hydraulics inventory powerful enough to launch a satellite. And every single element of this boat is today as good as (or better than) new. ‘All our experience in racing boats for the Volvo and America’s Cup has been applied to the build of this amazing yacht. Using the most sophisticated materials and to a great design, High Spirit is one of the finest yachts that we have ever launched.’ – Pablo Santarsiero, managing director of King Marine High Spirit features an all-carbon hull and structure, with a Nomexcored deck to keep the centre of gravity low and sailing stability high, finished off with a beautiful teak deck. Then there is a hydraulic lifting keel to get you in close to the sand plus a state-of-the-art hydraulic drive train to silently but speedily spin the latest Harken performance winches. Sailing electronics are by B&G, hydraulic management and power by Cariboni, lines and cordage are all by Armare, with a second North Sails delivery wardrobe to keep the 3Di race sails pristine. As we said, the best of the best wherever you look. A race-winning new yacht from one of the world’s top designers and with a contemporary and light interior, the High Spirit cruising offer is also both elegant and extraordinary. And that race performance… a yacht with this degree of elegance that gets up on the plane when you start to lean on her in earnest. What else could any ambitious sailor ever ask for? This fast lift-keel 65-footer is being offered in as new condition for offers on € 1.500.000 Click here for the full specs of the boat From Seahorse magazine.

World Sailing has established a dedicated section of sailing.org to the fastest growing discipline in sailing, double handed offshore sailing. Offshore sailing is a universal discipline that every World Sailing Member National Authority (MNA) can participate in. Following the selection of a Mixed Two Person Offshore Keelboat Event at Paris 2024, event numbers for double handed offshore events in One Design boats and handicap racing have increased. The dedicated section on sailing.org, available here, provides information on Paris 2024 as well as a list of double handed offshore events that will be regularly updated. A section on equipment is also included. To encourage focus on the discipline of offshore sailing itself rather than on specific equipment, the Paris 2024 Olympic Equipment will be selected relatively close to the event. The broad discipline of doublehanded offshore sailing, which includes all doublehanded events over 50 miles in length, with no gender restrictions, and sailed one-design or under any rating system (e.g. ORC, IRC, or regional systems) can guide sailors and MNAs to focus their preparation efforts on the required skills to succeed. Skills such as seamanship, navigation, weather prediction, route selection, boat-handling and of course fast sailing, common to the discipline, can be refined rather than optimising the performance of a particular boat. The 2024 Mixed Keelboat Offshore Event will be a representation of this discipline. A very specific, one-race, mixed-gender, one-design, supplied-equipment, event with a specified duration. In recent weeks and months, a 2024 Offshore Equipment Working Party, that brings together members of the Equipment Committee and Oceanic and Offshore Committee, have been in consultation with manufacturers of offshore boats. The Working Party is developing a set of criteria in consultation with the industry both for the Paris 2024 Olympic event and for the qualification events. An initial draft of the criteria will be made public and accessible here when available. Towards the end of 2019, World Sailing issued a Request for Information to engage manufacturers and classes in the discussions around the equipment. World Sailing received 12 responses from manufacturers and designers who provided information on initial proposals. More on each manufacturer is available below: Dehler 30 OD Django 8s FarEast 28 R Figaro 3 J88 J99 J105 JPK1030 L30 Sunfast 3300 TEN2 Vector6.5 During the COVID-19 pandemic, the manufacturers all met World Sailing collectively via a video conference. Discussions centred around opportunities for all fleets, how World Sailing can help all manufacturers thrive and increase events, as well as emphasising the important of equipment equalisation and the one design aspect for the Paris 2024 Olympic event to ensure the focus remains on the skills of the sailor. The discussion was positively received by all manufacturers as they underlined their commitment to ensuring the continued growth of the discipline. The criteria for suitable Equipment for the Olympic Offshore Event will be published no later than 31 December 2020 and the Equipment will be selected no later than 31 December 2023.
