Posted by in Boating News

It is with great pride that Jeanneau will be watching seven SUN FAST 3600s and six SUN FAST 3200s at the start of the SORC Round the Rock Race. Of the 46 boats enrolled, 13 are from the SUN FAST line!

The SORC Round the Rock Race is organised by the SOLO Offshore Racing Club: http://solofastnet.co.uk/.

It runs from Central Solent to Plymouth via the Fastnet Lighthouse. This race, which combines sailing the English Channel and the Celtic Sea, is particularly difficult to sail single-handed. The challenge is significant! The start date is announced for the 2nd of July.

At Jeanneau, we all wish them fair winds and calm seas!

Catamaran Dealers & Their Biases For Or Against Products

Bali 4.0 vs FP Lucia 40 Catamarans

By Catamaran Guru

After the Paris boat show, a Bali owner alerted me about a blog post by a Fountaine Pajot dealer criticizing the Bali 4.0. He was a little miffed and asked for our opinion. Ordinarily, I wouldn’t pay attention to these snipes, but the post was blatantly misleading and I felt compelled to respond. The dealer published predictably negative comments but in this case the dealer abandoned all reason and logic.

Jeanneau Leader 36 wins Best of Boats

Jeanneau Leader 36 wins Best of Boats

In 1957, Henri Jeanneau, already passionate about aeroplanes and automobiles, had just discovered a brand new passion for powerboating, one that began as he watched a boat pass by his window. Soon afterward, in the small town of Les Herbiers, France, home to a rich heritage of artisan work, he began building a wooden hull with which he participated in the 6-hour Paris race, the largest national race at the time. He was first to cross the line.

Even though Henri Jeanneau is no longer with us, in so many ways, he still is and is still racing today. And winning!

Today we are delighted to be recognized and to receive the award of Best Boats for Families 2015. This award highlights and confirms the spirit of Henri Jeanneau and the LEADER range: sporty, livable boats, ideal for family cruising.
