It is
a design signed Simonis-Voogd the new FarEast 28 R, an eight-and-a-half-meter (by 2.75-meter wide) that aims to become one of the new benchmark one-designs. Already in Asia it is proving to be a winning boat, thanks in part to its excellent power-to-weight ratio. In fact, its displacement is 1,200 kilograms, compared to a respectable sail plan with a 27.8-square-meter mainsail, a 20.2-square-meter jib and an 80-square-meter gennaker (which takes advantage of the presence of the retractable bowsprit). www.seaway.it

We were able to admire it at its European “premiere” in Dusseldorf and were struck by the extreme cleanliness of its cockpit. Will he be able to fit into the always fierce one-design challenge? Watch him below in action during a test in Sweden. This, and many other videos, on the March Sail Journal youtube playlist.
