Quantum Racing con pedestal delantero alineado en crujía. Pit area muy cerca del molinete de genoa para usar el mismo en las izadas de spi.

La envidia de todos, un sheerline redondo y no filoso, muy agradable para adrizar.

Audi All4One, gemelo al Audi Azzurra pero con algunos detalles distintos como no tener molinete utility en el pit area y la entrada a la carroza centrada y no desfasada como la nuestra.

Miren el shherline del Audi y comparenló con el Quantum.

Ran y una cabina bastante fea, cosas del reglamento que exige “x” volumen interior que hay que repartir entre la superficie del cockpit y cubierta/cabina. En el caso de los Vrolijk se priorizaron cubiertas más planas y bajas con carroza, y los Botin (Synergy y Quantum) meten casi todo el volumen en la cubierta haciendola bien redonda (como si fuese un J24 para que se entienda fácil). Se evitan las carrozas pero tienen el piso del cockpit más alto.

CHEMINÉES POUJOULAT GOÛTE À L’EAU SALÉE
12.05.11, 12:41

La première mise à l’eau d’un bateau est toujours un moment chargé d’émotion. Toute l’équipe de Bernard Stamm n’a pas dérogé à la règle. Les sourires en disaient long et les yeux étaient chargés d’admiration du travail de chacun. Car, cette aventure, portée par un skipper emblématique, est avant tout une histoire collective.

Le 60 pieds Imoca Cheminées Poujoulat a pris son envol ce matin à La Ciotat. Bien accroché à une grue impressionnante, il a rejoint lentement son élément sous les applaudissements de bon nombre de ceux qui ont œuvré à la construction de cet « avion de chasse ».
Honneur au « patron », c’est Bernard qui a foulé le pont le premier et a pu savourer :

Une sensation : le bateau en léger mouvement sous les pieds.
Un bruit : le clapotis de l’eau qui tape et résonne contre la coque.
Une image : une ligne puissante et racée délicatement posée sur l’eau.
Un bonheur à partager : accolades, poignées de main et coups de téléphone, Bernard a remercié chaleureusement chaque acteur du projet.

« C’est un grand moment, une bonne étape. Le bateau quitte enfin son environnement de chantier pour rejoindre la mer et c’est là qu’il doit être. C’est une phase importante avec une petite interrogation : comment va t-il flotter ? C’est la confirmation physique de la théorie ».
Verdict ? « C’est juste nickel ! Et ça fait plaisir pour tous les gars qui ont bossé sur ce projet. Nous avons crée quelque chose. Aujourd’hui, c’est une belle récompense »
Demain matin, le bateau sera soumis au test de retournement avant d’accueillir son mât dans la foulée. Une nouvelle journée pour de nouvelles étapes.

Press release

Team Aqua launches a new RC 44

The RC 44 Austria Cup – 10 – 15 May – will be a special occasion for Team Aqua as they race in their new boat for the first time.
Chris Bake’s Team Aqua has been a leading force on the RC44 circuit since its launch in 2007. The team won the RC 44 Championship Tour in 2007, and finished first in the match race ranking in 2010 with pro sailor Cameron Appleton at the helm. Team Aqua was however sailing on the oldest boat in the fleet up until now, and decided that to maintain the momentum a new boat would be invested in for the 2011 season.
“The RC 44 boat and concept are a winner”, says Bake. “Dynamic one design boat, ease of transport, varied locations, competitive, huge support from the class and ultimately fun. I absolutely love it and I am determined to carrying on competing at the highest level. The fact of acquiring a new boat is a testimony to the quality of this Class. We hope many other teams will join in in the near future.”
Boat captain Nigel King has been working closely with RC 44 boat builders Pauger to make sure that the new boat is ready and raring to go by the time racing commences at the RC 44 Austria Cup on Lake Traunsee. He explained: “Chris Bake is a massive supporter of the class and committed for the long-term so the team felt it was the right time to invest in a new boat to see Aqua through the next few years.”
“Nigel King, Karl Funk and Chris Noble have done a great job at preparing the boat”, said Cameron Appleton, the team’s project manager, match race helmsman and fleet race tactician. “Thanks to their hard work we will have a race-ready boat for the next race on Lake Traunsee. We are all looking forward to this; those are exciting times for our team.”
Besides being one of the principal contenders of the Tour, Team Aqua uses its boat as a platform to promote an eco-friendly message. The team supports the World Land Trust and “2041”, an organisation founded by polar explorer, environmental leader and public speaker Robert Swan, OBE, the first person in history to walk to both the North and South poles, and dedicated to the protection of the poles. Team Aqua offsets its carbon footprint and promotes sustainable development.
