Jabuka was a hard offshore test for ClubSwan 36

Two Nautor ClubSwan 36s from ACI Sail fleet had a real offshore test during Jabuka (Apple in Croatian), one of the hardest and toughest races in the Adriatic. With hard blowing winds, rough sea and heavy showers during the 110 mile long route from Croatian town Vodice to the legendary rock Jabuka in the middle of the Adriatic ClubSwan 36 passed this arduous test with excellent marks. In overall standings yacht 'Facing Future' was second and yacht 'Go Racing' was seventh among 106 boats. The helmsman of 'Go Racing' and manager of ACI Sail Ivan Kljakovic Gaspic was very pleased with boat performance.
"The Adriatic sea is not very friendly at this time of the year. The weather conditions were hard. More than 14 hours of sailing is a very demanding task but this was also a great opportunity to test different ways to sail this boat with its foil and its rig in offshore sailing. The ClubSwan 36 has shown great potential. It was fast, reliable and solid as a rock. We managed to sail the boat at close to optimum performance for the most time during the race. During sailing upwind we got about eight knots of speed, and during downwind we were flying at a speed of 21 knots. That was astonishing. With me on the boat were new Head of Swan One Design Sport Activities Federico Michetti and famous Croatian alpine ski racer Ivica Kostelic who is now a very keen and passionate sailor and they enjoyed it very much. For me, the best description would be how the ClubSwan 36 allows one to experience extremely fast sailing as an amateur – an experience that is usually reserved exclusively for professionals – and in total safety", said famous Croatian sailor Ivan Kljakovic Gaspic.

Restoring Swan 37 Elixir

Max Campbell, a young passionate English sailor, shares with us the story of the restoration of S&S Swan 37 Elixir. Max found her at the back of a boatyard in Mylor, deep in winter: “She had been neglected for quite a long time. Along with a group of friends, I built a shed and began to restore her.
Over an 11 month period, we gave her a completely new paint job, inside and outside. We replaced all the teak and aluminum deck fittings, and polished up the stainless steel. We rebuilt the rudder, and did a handful of fiberglass repairs, and now she looks really good. My friends and I are now planning on completing a circumnavigation on her. We are all between 24-26, and are sailors, photographers, scientists and writers. Everyone’s really excited to go sailing, and Elixir’s the prefect boat for the voyage.” They plan to leave their home town of Falmouth in December, to head out on this epic new adventure.

AON Corner - CREW ACCIDENT POLICY

 

In this monthly bulletin, we would like to give you somewords regarding a topic that gave us a hard time this summer and also previous seasons. During the last season more than one owner contacted us due to some issues in relation to accidents occurred with their guests; as you all may know, one of the most common policies is the “third party liability”, which operates in order to cover all damages caused by the insured to third persons. What sometimes is not so clear is the fact that said policy covers only guests and not the crew and if any person on board takes part in any maneuver (like for instance simply raising the anchor or using a winch), he or she will be considered part of the crew and the insurance companies may not cover any injury suffered by this person.
With a view to providing a cost effective and at the same time efficient solution to these unpleasant cases, we strongly suggest our clients to sign our exclusive ACCIDENT POLICY based on the number of people on board vaild both for professional and amateur crew.
Pelase find below our email contact; please do not hesitate to ask us for some more detailed information about this topic. We will be pleased to deliver you a deeper explanation or a proper concrete solution to this issue.
