    Yacht description The Landmark 43 is a Mark Mills design and has been one of the most successfull racing boats over the past 8 years in national and international regatta’s. The 2016 ORCi World Championship was won by a Landmark 43 with 2 other Landmarks ranked in the top 10. The Landmark 43 “Skarp” won the Dutch National Championship in 2015 and several other first prizes since it was launched in 2011. This Landmark 43 has been maintained by her skipper/owner by the highest standards and was refitted with new electronics in 2015. The boat, which has the option to sail in symmetrical or asymmetrical spinnaker configuration, comes with a large number of sails including a hardly used North Sails 3Di main and 3Di genua H sail. The Landmark 43 is a remarkable fast racing/cruiser sailboat. The hull is made of fiberglass re-inforced epoxy sandwich and gelcoat. The keel frame inside the boat is made of carbon composite and the whole hull and deck are laminated together to create an even more stiff structure.

To save weight all interior components such as cubboards and doors are made of plastic honeycomb material covered by luxurieus wood veneer.  Floorboards are sandwich material covered by laminate.

    Cala Galera, Italy: The first day of the 2017 Melges 32 Boero World Championship in Cala Galera, Italy hosted by Circolo Nautico e della Vela Argentario has concluded with two races, leaving the fleet to bask in Russian colors. Pavel Kuznetsov's TAVATUY with Evgeny Neugodnikov as tactician won both races today. He and his team earned a perfect score in the 10-12 knots of breeze out of the Northwest, which unmistakably reveals their intention, not to mention their potential. Although the event is quite young, they have confirmed that they are the team to beat. It was also a very positive day for the current 2017 Melges 32 World League leader, Giangicomo Serena di Lapigio's G.SPOT representing Monaco. He submitted a 2-3 scoreline to now sit in second overall. The fleet hits the water again for Day Two with forecasts stating light air conditions may prevail with a warning at 13.00 (Italy). Top Five Results (Preliminary - After Two Races) 1. Pavel Kuznetsov/Evgeny Neugodnikov, TAVATUY; 1-1 = 2 2. Giangiacomo Serena di Lapigio/Branko Brcin, G.SPOT; 2-3 = 5 3.

    Near Sweep by France at Fastnet Race Published on August 11th, 2017 0inShare 54   EmailShare Plymouth, UK (August 11, 2017) – For a third time running the Rolex Fastnet Race has been a story of French domination, Le Tricolor flying on this occasion from the top spot of the podium. France took victories in IRC 1, 2, 3 and 4, Class40 and IMOCA 60, Two Handed and IRC Overall. Even the Chinese boat, Dongfeng Race Team, that won Volvo 65 competition had a largely French crew. This left IRC Zero to American Ron O’Hanley’s Cookson 50 Privateer, while, surprisingly, the only British class victory went to Tony Lawson’s MOD70 trimaran Concise 10, in the usually French-strong Multihull class. Early on, the overall prize looked set to be a big boat affair with both the JV 115 Nikata and George David’s maxi Rambler 88 leading until the run back from the Fastnet Rock favoured the medium-sized boats. Ron O’Hanley’s Privateer came close to making it a second Cookson 50 victory, a decade on from the overall win of Irishman Ger O’Rourke’s Chieftain. “This is a great race, an iconic race and we have had a great time even if we haven’t won,” said O’Hanley. “It was a fantastic start in Cowes – hard to see how you can get 400 boats out of the Solent at the same time! The weather conditions were good, not as light as it was last time and there was no drama coming out of the Solent.” As to where they did well, O’Hanley said it was on the run back from the Rock. “The big boats were leading, but then for a smaller boat to get into the lead was because of the very good conditions – tight reaching, we were planing most of the time and with the canting keel we could put a lot of miles on the clock.” However, by Wednesday (Aug 9) it became apparent that there was a new contender for the 2017 Fastnet Challenge Cup – the overall prize under IRC. Didier Gaudoux’s JND39, Lann Ael 2, struggled last year when she competed in the Brewin Dolphin Commodores’ Cup, however, then she was only six months old. Since then the team, based out of La Crouesty in southern Brittany, has tweaked the boat considerably with the assistance of sailmaker and former Mini and Figaro sailor Fred Duthil. “We had a fantastic race,” said Gaudoux. “We were lucky with the weather. The conditions were good for the team and the crew. From Fastnet Rock to the Scilly Isles was perfect for us – the wind angle, the size of the waves, etc. It was windy and these boats enjoy big waves. We were doing over 20 knots- a new record for us!” Prior to this, the French boat had benefitted by going so close in at the Lizard that “we could touch the rocks,” said Gaudoux. Like the other boats that did well, Lann Ael 2 went east of the traffic separation scheme off Land’s End, benefitting them greatly in terms of the distance to sail and favourable wind shifts. “Our navigator/tactician did a perfect job to tack on the right shifts,” said Gaudoux. The JND 39 is a heavily-chined design from Bernard Nivelt and ate up the miles on the run towards Bishop Rock. “It took 11 hours to cover 170 miles! We were surprised. We were two to three miles ahead of some good competitors at the Rock and by the Scilly Isles we were 30 miles ahead simply because we were going faster,” said Gaudoux. Paris-based Gaudoux was sailing with his son Thomas and daughter Coralie, navigator Fred Duthil, plus Nicolas Deberque, Nicolas Dore, Alois Kerduel, Pierre Louiset, Paulin Nicol and Christian Ponthieu. As to the Rolex Fastnet Race, this is Gaudoux’s fourth: “When I was 16 years old, the Fastnet was a dream. The RORC lays on very nice races. Although it is a long way to come, boats take part from all around the world. We receive a nice welcome and the races are always very well organised.” With the prizegiving for the Rolex Fastnet Race taking place tonight, boats continue to stream into Plymouth. Among them has been the Frers 46, Scaramouche, crewed by Greig City Academy in East London including eight students aged 15 and 18, plus two teachers, two skippers and a team manager. The boys are almost all first generation Londoners, and embraced the unfamiliar challenge of ocean racing with huge enthusiasm. “It was a real test for them,” said team manager John Holt. “They are true pioneers amongst their peer group.” Seventeen year old Montel Fagan Jordan, whose family comes from Jamaica, was a helmsman on board. “I started sailing in dinghies three years ago, but now it’s great to be on a big boat. We had some great surfing downwind after we got round the Fastnet Rock.” Bowman Camillo Oribo, also 17, agreed: “The way back was definitely the best bit. We flew with the spinnaker up. We don’t get too tired once we’ve established a watch system.”   PROVISIONAL RESULTS: IRC Z: 1. Privateer – Cookson 50, Ron O’Hanley (USA); 2. Lady Mariposa – Ker 46, Daniel Hardy (GBR); 3.
