Featured Blog - Chevalier Taglang

This is an great blog by François Chevalier and Jacques Taglang for those interested in yacht design.  While the blog is set up in French, my understanding is that Francois and Jacques create design drawings of various yachts from their observations of photos or other media, and also come up with their own concept drawings. 

Current featured designs include the ETNZ catamaran, and comparisons with Artemis' contender.

Other interesting designs include the Volvo 70s from the recent edition of the Volvo Ocean Race, the famous Australia II, and an interesting maxiscow (100ft) concept based on the recent Mini-Transat winning scow design by David Raison.  The advantages of this design approach may be compelling, but the aesthetic result may take some time to get used to!
