the new beau in town

1470172_657249054325116_1026193951_nWith the first real competition for line honors in years, excitement continues to build over the 2013 Sydney-Hobart fleet.  We showed you the new Carkeek 60 landing in Australia a couple of weeks ago, and here’s something sexy from Carkeek’s old partner; it’s the new Botin 80 Beau Geste hitting the harbor after a balls-to-the-wall build sched at Cookson’s.

The canting mini-maxi replaces the almost new Farr 80 that famously and terrifyingly cracked in half  during last year’s Auckland to Noumea Race, and she has some new thinking and quite a bit more structure than the ill-fated boat; given the right conditions, this thing is going to be a rocket, even capable of line honors if everything went her way.

In the meantime, Bob Oatley’s Wild Oats XI looks to have suffered a mast failure during testing/practice of her new rig.  Eyewitnesses said the rig compressed at the gooseneck; no big deal for the Southern Spars techs on hand to fix it.

In other news, Loyal (ex Speedboat) got some good facetime on the 18 Footers broadcast last week; this link will take you right to it.  Stick by the Hobart thread for a stream of news that will continue to get better and better as Boxing Day approaches!

Cheers to Rockstar Yachting for the shot (via FB).
