Her results say it all really; the very cleverly designed JND 39 LANN AEL 2 combines years of successful French offshore DNA into a very fast and comfortable yacht to sail offshore, with an enviable IRC handicap. Her hull design has a slight sheer to keep the yacht dry at speed, some relatively hard chines running from the bow aft that increases form stability rapidly as heel angle increases. Originally designed as a single rudder yacht, the yacht has now been optimised more towards reaching with twin rudders and a selection of code sails and tack points to squeeze every ounce of speed from the sail plan. The sails are very well designed and thought out - some are very new and hardly out of the bag, and even the older ones have not seen the light of day too much. Below, the accommodation, although not a luxury cruiser, is comfortable and well organised for a few crew and navigator, with separate galley area and enclosed heads. There is plenty of opportunity to optimise the yacht with sail areas and keel weight dependent on sailing area, for inshore racing perhaps drop the single rudder back in, and sail with soft sails. Really, a very good all round yacht for coastal, offshore and regatta racing.
Owner's Comments:
The boat was built in Trimarine in Portugal in 2015 and started to sail Q1 2016.
At the end of the season 2016, we decided to change the keel to get a different profile (and stiffer) with more weight.
The keel received an additional "shoe" - job done by Charlie Capelle in La Trinité.
During the first semester 2017, we changed the top of the mast by cutting the old one at the level of the upper
spreaders and adding a top mast higher. The sails were adapted to the new height in 2017. Starting 2018, new sails
were developed based on knowledge of the two first seasons.
We started a good campaign 2017 / 2018 and won the Fastnet overall in 2017.
At the end of 2018, the decision was made to install two rudders to improve the boat for reaching and to re-do the
painting inside the boat - job done by Charlie Capelle.
Winter 2020 - new paint for all the deck and hull (2 coats of paint plus varnish). All equipment was removed for the
painting and refitted with waterproofing.
In addition, the running rigging was changed: the channels, a new mainsail traveller, some halyards, sheet (jib +
mainsail+ spinnaker), etc.
Request to see the invoice of Charlie Capelle for the details of works performed during the winter (60.000EUR). Others
works have been performed by a Figaro preparer.
Due to professional constraints, LANN AEL 2 is not sailing as much a she should be. Further, due to the COVID-19
pandemic in 2020 and 2021, LANN AEL 2 did not race much either.
