Cc-30Check out this little gem: it’s called C&C 30, it’s American, and it was designed by the firm of Mark Mills. In the racing world now, attention to ratings is also a key factor in design. In this case, writes Seahorse Magazine, “compensated time regulations were thrown out the window and an attempt was made to build this monotype so that it would be as fast, stable and fun as possible.”

Mills worked closely with CFD (Computational Fluid Design, the hydrodynamic calculations) experts at KND Sailing Performance and used the North Marine Group’s virtual wind tunnel, so the C&C 30 is the result of the most detailed technological research.

The deck is inspired, in a small way, by that of the TP52s, very clean and characterized by a very large cockpit in which the tiller rudder finds its place. The keel is “T-shaped” with a draft of 2.30 meters. The maximum beam shifted aft ensures stability and easy glide, a feature also favored by the hull’s light weight and significant sail plan. www.c-cyachts.com
