Aureus XV Absolute # 1
The “Zig Zag Wanderer“


Since our previous newsletter, the first Aureus XV Absolute has already travelled more than 2,000 nautical miles.

Our "Zig Zag Wanderer" sailed from La Rochelle to Cannes, with some pleasant stopovers in Cascais (Portugal), Gibraltar, Almeria (Spain), Puerto Soller (Majorca) and Saint Mandrier (France).

The happy crew took great pleasure in navigating and enjoyed some exciting moments, as for example when they reached a speed of over 15 knots along the Portuguese coast. During this 24 hours leg with the wind between 20 and 35 knots, beam reaching and then broad reaching, the average speed was over 11 knots under mainsail and self tacking genoa.

In mid-September the Aureus XV Absolute was presented at the Festival de la Plaisance de Cannes and was very well received by the public and the press. The next sea trials will give us an opportunity to share the pleasure of sailing on Aureus XV with journalists and prospective clients and to show velocity, comfort and manoeuvrability of this “compact maxi yacht."

The next step for the "Zig Zag Wanderer” is its participation in the Atlantic Rally for Cruiser (ARC) between Las Palmas and St. Lucia late November. This crossing of the Atlantic is a great opportunity to reveal the full potential of this fast offshore sailing yacht. The very light weight of the yacht, due to its carbon/epoxy hull and deck, high modulus carbon mast and boom, together with its D4 vectran sails should ensure fast and sensational crossing.

Atlantic Rally for Cruisers


Atlantic Rally for Cruisers, better known as ARC, is an annual transatlantic sailing event for cruiser yachts held since 1986.

This year’s edition will start, as always, from Las Palmas, on November 25th, for a 2.600 Nautical miles navigation to Rodney Bay in Saint Lucia.

260 sailing yachts, big and small, monohulls and catamarans, are engaged. This rally is also an opportunity to meet others sailing enthusiasts while racing in a fun spirit for around 15 days.
 
The First Aureus XV Absolute, “Zig Zag Wanderer”, will join the 2013 edition of this race. It is the perfect event to enjoy a great sailing experience of 2 weeks across the Atlantic and to reveal the full potential of this fast offshore sailing yacht. The arrival in Saint Lucia in early December promises to be spectacular!
 
The Aureus XV’s crew will make sure to seize this amazing opportunity to further improve the Aureus XV and to find new ways to deliver wild sensations on our Compact Maxi Yacht.
 
During the transatlantic crossing, we will be making regularly posts on social networks to share this experience with you, thanks to the on-board high-speed Internet installed on the Aureus XV Absolute.

Before the start and after the end of the race, we will be organizing a few sea trials in Las Palmas and in Saint-Lucia. Feel free to contact us if you would like to join us for an Aureus XV Absolute sea-trial !
