Comanche2014*

There’s something special about a pretty drawing, and Francois Chevalier has long been the world’s most interesting racing yacht illustrator.  He and the Anarchists over at the ChevalierTaglang blog have knocked up not only this awesome drawing of Comanche, but all 5 of the Supermaxis contesting this year’s Hobart.

They’ve even got analysis, and thanks to SA’er ‘nuttyrave’, you can check it out here.

New Supermaxi Jim Clark VPLP

Software billionaire Jim Clark famously said last year that he was ‘over’ the whole Caribbean and Mediterranean thing, selling his J/Class Hanuman and super-schooner Athena for North of 100 million bucks.  And very quietly, he’s been putting together a boat that finally brings all the design advances we’ve seen in the Open 60 and Mini-maxi world to a supermaxi.  It’s the first new racer we’ve seen of this size in years, and the fact that it’s for an American is great news for the industry as well as for lovers of boat porn, and for anyone who wants to see the Speedboats and the Wild Oatses of the worlds get beaten – easily – by a guy with ‘fuck you’ money who is often happy to speak his mind.

 As usual, we’re here to bring you the world’s first look at it.  Ripped from the projector screen of Ken Read’s keynote speech at the US Sailing Leadership Forum is this new VPLP-designed 100 foot monster.  We’ll have much, much more to report this Saturday.
