Figaro Beneteau 3 Launched

The Prototype Figaro Beneteau 3 has been launched in St Gilles Croix de Vie, the birthplace of Bénéteau. amid much excitement. The Figaro Beneteau 3 is the first production foiling one-design monohull ever to be designed.
Built by Beneteau with Van Peteghem – Lauriot Prévost Naval architect. A partnership of innovation and design.

The Foils

Contrary to Imoca 60 foils, the FB3 foils have an inward-facing profile. The way they operate is different. They are versatile foils that create drift reduction and improve the boat’s righting moment, without increasing the movement, which improves the boat’s performance.

The Keel

Deep, with a straight blade,  creates minimum drag. Supplementary drift reduction is provided by the foils.

The Hull

Made of foam sandwich, fibreglass and polyester infused resin, it corresponds to current designs and is ballast-free.

Mast and Sail Layout

Similar to the Imoca 60s, the mast is set back, providing balance under sail. This allows the use of high performance sails and the addition of a bowsprit. Solo sailors will sail with a square-top mainsail, a genoa and a jib, but also a masthead spinnaker (105 m² (=125 yd²) to gain speed in a light breeze) and a small gennaker.

Mainsail area: 39.5 m² (420 ft²)

Jib area: 30.5 m² (323 ft²)

Large spinnaker area: 105 m² (125 yd²)

Figaro Beneteau Circuit

The Figaro circuit, including the well-known “Solitaire URGO le Figaro”, is renowned for being difficult. It unites the best French offshore racing sailors, who compete in ten races a year. The best sailors started out on the FB1and FB2. The FB3 has been designed to meet the requirements of this circuit, but may well suit other uses!

FYS 17th Beneteau Owners Weekend

5. FYS Fleet Felixstowe_0768

The program for the day involved two light hearted races, starting from Harwich, the first out to sea, the second in the rivers, Orwell and Stour followed by a prize-giving and BBQ at the Royal Harwich Yacht Club. The boats were split in to 3 Classes – OCEANIS, FIRST (up to 30ft) and FIRST (over 30ft).

The first race saw the 14 boats head out into Dovercourt Bay. With the fleet ranging in size from 21ft to 42ft they soon spread out with the stunning looking FIRST 40 “40 Love”, chartered from East Anglian Sea School for the event leading the way overall and in the FIRST (over 30ft) class. The FIRST (under 30ft) class was led home by fifth time Beneteau owner John in “Gemini” the Beneteau FIRST 25s. The first OCEANIS to finish was Graham’s well sailed OCEANIS 42CC, “Escapade”.

For the second race, after a fairly “exciting” first mark rounding at last years event, it was decided to start the fleet heading out to Pye End buoy (to get some separation) before re-entering Harwich and sailing up the Stour and Orwell Rivers.

This year’s excitement at the second start involved a Thames Barge (racing in the annual Barge match) and a First 211 (either using last years start instructions or with the chart upside down) sailing through the start line in the opposite direction to the fleet. Thankfully all was well. On entering the River Stour, a foul tide beat made the crews work hard, Clive in his new OCEANIS 35, “Lazy Days II” gained many places as he marched up the shore out of the tide. The same boats finished first in each class, although “Gemini” was first to actually finish on a shortened course half way up the River Orwell.

Our thanks go to all who entered and to our sponsors and supporters.
