What is frustrating during the Paris boat show is to be locked indoor! Indeed, it is difficult to change the atmosphere of a large Parisian hangar into that of a nice harbour and to see the lines of the boat on the water.
This is especially true when launching a new Lagoon 39 as a truly innovative* catamaran which everyone expects to be tested at sea .
Exclusively for you, here are the first images of the Lagoon 39 under sail. This short video was filmed by me (so do not expect a professional quality) just before the show at Les Sables d’Olonne. Conditions in the morning were a 20-25 knot north-easterly wind with a short swell of 1m to 1.50m. Photos were taken in the afternoon with 10 knots of wind which allowed us to set a code 0, a perfect sail for light wind which allows this pretty Lagoon 39 to reach a 100 m² + sail area!
* The major innovation being a completely new type of rig on a cruising catamaran.
