11:mod - presentation
The Ron Holland designed scaled down version for the new Americas Cup Class yachts, 11:Metre One
Design, offers real attraction for all sailors. Both pros and beginners
find this maneuverable yacht exiting. Here is a yacht where sailing skills
rather than acrobatic youthfulness is decisive.
"The 11:Metre is the most
fun, the fastest and the least fragile amongst the new sportboats" is
a common view amongst sailors that have tried most types of the new fast
Fully battened main and a self-tacking jib makes it very easy
to sail. Runners and checkstays only trims the rig upwind and is not needed
for safety. The masthead spinnaker is carried on a oversized pole which
makes downwind sailing a thrill. Acceleration is superior and she planes
readily in moderate air.
The deck layout makes it easy to sail. It includes
hardware from the best suppliers in the world. A tabernacle for the mast
makes it easy to step the mast without a crane.
The interior is simple.
But it can take your friend and family for a weekend cruise. Enjoy the
life and relax on this fun sailboat.
The class rule has a crew weight
limit which allows everyone to race on equal terms, old against young,
men against women. Hiking is not allowed. The 11:Metre is a very strict
One-Design yacht. Good building methods with high class materials ensure
a long life and a good second hand value.
