    Look at video of the Vendee Globe boats.

    So which design is the ultimate for such a tiny cruiser?

    can this minuet yacht design be improved at all?

    I notice the videos of them sailing it seems the bow digs in, seems to be nose down when sailing but maybe this doesn’t matter?

    Are you talking about tiny boats?

    can you post the link please?

    I wonder about the minuet yacht design with a spray hood with just your head sticking out so that you would be enclosed and couldn’t take on any water at all

    Matt Layden's Paradox and smaller Enigma are such designs. Closing in the skipper has safety implications.
