LAZY SAILING

The Cannes Yachting Festival is over. We had the pleasure to see a lot of sailing enthusiasts on-board the Aureus XV and thank you again for supporting us!

We also made a few sea trials the days following the show, with such magazines as Sail Republic, Mer et Bateaux and Barche. We'll keep you posted when those sea trials will be published in the press.

The solo sailing back to Toulon was very exciting, even sailing the "Lazy way" with only the 115 square meters Code 0 launched with the electric furler and the mainsail remaining in its lazy bag. The Aureus XV was incredibly stable (even without the mainsail!) and sailed constantly between 9,8 knots and 13,6 knots, with a great East Wind, between 28 and 35 knots.

OPTIMIZED MANŒUVRES

We optimized our automatic reefing system by reducing friction to a minimum in all angle transmissions. This ensures that the reefing manoeuvres are much easier in all conditions. On Aureus XV Absolute the helmsman can handle 3 reefs alone, without leaving the helm.

Once hoisted on its anti-twist cable, code 0, genacker or asymmetric spinnaker takes no more than 8 seconds to be unfurled. Using the reversing electric winches, sheets can also be relieved, allowing each sail to be rolled up in less than 30 seconds, without ever leaving the helm station.

We are currently working on a wireless controller to operate these winches from the deck which will facilitate the hoisting of headsails for single-handed sailing.

SPEED OF OVER 15 KNOTS REACHED

In August 2013 our "Zig Zag Wanderer" sailed from La Rochelle to Cannes.

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.

The first Aureus XV Absolute has already sailed more than 2,000 nautical miles.

THE AUREUS XV ABSOLUTE # 1 IS ON WATER

The construction of the first Aureus XV Absolute has been completed. Our team is currently refining the settings of this off-shore sailing yacht designed for long trips and around the globe sailing.

Sea trials have begun and Aureus Yachts will continue navigation sessions throughout the summer to optimize the boat for its offshore sailing program. We put special emphasis on reaching the most exceptional standards of quality of life on board and manoeuvrability, with a focus on the accessibility to technical parts and ease of understanding of the ship’s key systems.

With this approach, we assure for each future Aureus XV owner the maximum fun time in sailing while facilitating a global understanding of the boat, essential for safe navigation. We also anticipate all maintenance operations so that they can be performed quickly and easily.

During the first sailing trials in the Bay of La Rochelle, we noted with satisfaction that the Aureus XV keeps all its promises in light winds, with a boat speed recorded at over 10 knots under mainsail and 105% genoa in a breeze of 10 to 13 knot.
