Is this the future boat of Volvo Ocean Race inshore racing?

We are very pleased to share with you the VS40. Our Volvo Multihull Inshore Racing proposal, a performance orientated 40 foot foiling catamaran with Volvo inspired Scandinavian aesthetics that can be folded into a single container. The unique ease of pack up and assembly driven by the tender document results in a boat that is well suited to an expansion as a class complementary to the Volvo Ocean Race.

An opportunity was seen to group together a number of people who had become connected through a variety of projects in the past. The timing of the project worked out well, coming at the end of the America’s Cup, and at an interesting time in the big picture development of foiling racing boats.

Our design group consists of Gonzalo Redondo and his d3 Applied Technologies team, Adam May, Luc du Bois, Marc Menec from IS3D Engineering, Ocke and Ted Mannerfelt from Mannerfelt Design Team, Giovanni Belgrano from Pure Design & Engineering and Bob Graham.

While awaiting the decision on the timing of the next Volvo Ocean Race, work as a group continues on other exciting foiling projects.

L’envol du dernier né de Banque Populaire

Deux années et plus de 135 000 heures de réflexion, de travail et d’énergie auront permis au Team Banque Populaire et à Armel Le Cléac’h de donner naissance au Maxi Banque Populaire IX, un multicoque de course nouvelle génération. Ce nouvel Ultim, maniable en solitaire, capable d’être propulsé au-dessus de l’eau et ciselé pour les plus belles aventures autour du globe, a touché l’eau ce jour à 12h20 à Lorient. Il était un défi ambitieux et audacieux il y a deux ans, il est aujourd’hui un bijou d’innovation de 14 tonnes. Ceux qui l’ont imaginé racontent sa naissance.

Le Maxi Banque Populaire IX : un concentré de savoir-faire et de technologie
La nouvelle machine d’Armel Le Cléac’h, armée par la Banque de la Voile, met une nouvelle fois en lumière toute l’expertise du Team Banque Populaire, acquise en 28 ans d’engagement dans la course au large. L’équipe de Ronan Lucas, son directeur, a enchaîné des mois de recherche et de développement pour aller jusqu’au
de sa démarche d’innovation et accomplir le défi d’assemblage de ce puzzle géant. L’expérience du Team Banque Populaire, que ce soit pour la construction de Banque Populaire V1 (plus grand trimaran de course jamais construit), puis l’évolution de Banque Populaire VII2 (ex Groupama 3), a aussi permis de mieux définir les systèmes du bord tout comme l’appréhension des efforts, qui restent colossaux sur ce type de bateau. C’est tout le savoir-faire du Team qui a été mis au service de ce nouveau géant des mers : « Nos bateaux ont participé aux plus grandes courses et records, que ce soit en solitaire ou en équipage. Nous avons une bonne vision de la navigation à trois coques et surtout des capacités d’un seul homme à bord. Avec le temps, les choses évoluent évidemment : si l’on compare le Maxi Banque Populaire IX avec le Maxi Banque Populaire VII, il aura la même puissance, tout en étant plus léger de deux tonnes avec des surfaces de voile quasi identiques » explique Ronan Lucas.

Launch of the Maxi Edmond de Rothschild – an emotional day for the Gitana Team

Press Release n°160
Suspended from the crane, the carbon boats pack quite a punch. This emotional moment has been eagerly awaited by all those who have worked on her, not to mention those working in the background, in the big push to take offshore sailing into a whole new era. At 08:30 GMT this Monday, the first oceanic trimaran designed to fly offshore was launched in Vannes, south-west Brittany, under the proud gaze of her owners, Ariane and Benjamin de Rothschild, her designers and builders, and of course the whole of Gitana Team supporting skipper Sébastien Josse.

It is 17.07.2017, the perfect date for the latest of five-arrow racing stable, which goes by the name of Gitana 17 for her christening ceremony. She’s set to compete in a series of XXL maritime events, both in singlehanded and crewed configuration, under her race name, Maxi Edmond de Rothschild.

The public was also out in force, curious and enthralled about the opportunity to discover this unique boat, which is a precursor of the latest generation multihulls that fly. Her sleek, ethereal forms as well as her appendages, all equipped with trim tabs (even the central daggerboard), are an invitation to voyage, at speed, along the long oceanic swell. Indeed, this maxi-trimaran embodies the offshore racing universe and that of foiling, which is predominantly practiced within harbours, as is the case in the America’s Cup. In fact, it was Guillaume Verdier and his associates who worked in collaboration with the Gitana Team design office to create this new prototype. This French naval architect, who has just secured the silver ewer with the New Zealand team, was also behind the first foiling monohulls from the last Vendée Globe. This same challenge was also taken up by the Gitana Team in 2015-2016 with the Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild. Indeed, the ambition of flying offshore is part of a long-term strategy within the racing stable, as much in terms of research and development as on the water, where Sébastien Josse has been flying for a long while, on various craft.

Ben Rogerson Yacht Design announce their newcarbon BR31designed for HP30 class racing

Ben Rogerson Yacht Design (BRYD) have launched plans for their new BR31, an ultra-modern carbon racer, as a highly competitive option for the HP30 Class which has been set up on similar lines to the Fast 40+ Class.

The BR31 is aimed at ambitious racing sailors seeking fast, competitive and exciting racing at a fraction of the cost of running a 40 footer, yet offering similar features and feel. Designed for a maximum crew of seven, the boat will appeal to sailors wanting to step up from smaller sports boats, or those who want a smaller and exciting alternative within IRC& ORC racing.

Rogerson, a young designer with an impressive range of design and boat building experienceacross a variety of projects, including Oracle and the IMOCA 60 Estrella Damm, has set out to offer the BR31 at a cost effective base boat price of £115,000. The boats will be British built and incorporate many of the features found at the very top of the sport. A fabricated fin is standard, and options for owners include an adjustable forestay, standard or high modulus mast, string take down systems and deflectors.
