Hopefully the Transat 2007 has demonstrated what awesome boats the Magnens are. Despite competing against the new Manuards, new Finots and new Lombard, 3 out of the top 6 boats were Magnen or Magnen/Nivelt designs. Before Adrien dropped his rig on the second leg, 3 out of the top 4 boats were Magnens.

I would say that while some of the other designs may be faster overall, it is simply easier to sail a Magnen fast for long periods of time, which on long races is the key to doing well.

Hi Nicko -

Best day of your life - when you buy your boat.

Best day of your life - when you sell your boat.

Women don't even come into it.  What are you doing with your van?

Cheers

Geoff
