Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Amel 54, LONESTAR wins

Ann-Sofie Svanberg <kanalmamman@...>

No parasailor, just the Amel setting and our gennacker of 167 sqm. But not at the same time.

Our genua is slightly bigger than the standard, ours is 77 sqm somthat will,ofcours also play a roll.

First week we made between 185 and 204 nautical miles a day. Second week a bit slower around 170-180 nm a day.

Wow - Annsofie 15 days las Palmas to Antigua - that’s fast. Did you have a parasail or twin pole headsails? - I only have one pole so I will have to sail downwind with poled out Genoa and Gennaker the other side.

Jean Pierre has a SM attitude! Unfortunately, attitude does not usually make up for waterline deficiencies.

Jean Pierre,

I am already subscribed to the ARC so I’m afraid it is too late to change for me.

Faster - Hmmmm!!!!

Still waiting for our Onan course dates - will keep you posted if i hear first.

Hello Peter,

I will be going Transat in Nov 15 from southern Canaries.  Not in ARC though.  If you have not paid your entry fee yet, we could perhaps go together.  I’d give you a couple of days lead time as my boat will be far faster than yours.  

Others may want to join us???  

“Go fast” antifouling does it every time.  :-)

There is hope for Carango across the pond then - we'll give it our best.

Is anyone else in Amel in ARC 2015?

Our friend,  fellow Texan, and owner of an Amel 54, LONESTAR, beat all of the boats in the Caribbean 1500 except for a Cookson 80' sailboat.

But, Amels don't race, we save that for the Oyster owners...they need to get something for thier money. Unfortunately, Craig was about a day ahead of an Oyster 54, giving no mercy to the Oyster. Oh, and Craig beat the Sundeer 60.

Way to go, Craig Scott. BTHOC1500 (it is an aggie thing)
