Wind this time was between 18 and 24 knots, blowing from the shore so sea state was calm. The Heyman 34 Sport gladly leaves “hull speed” limits in these conditions. Bear away just a few degrees, ease the… Read More
A few persons have asked how does the the cockpit play together with the pilot house. Going inside, there are only two low steps down into the pilot house. The pilot house seating is even on the same level as the cockpit, on the other side of a glass bulkhead. The PPH is obviously rather different from most other boats but how will she appear in real life? To answer… Read More

During the past week-end, Marstrand saw a spectacular fleet of classic (pre-war) beautiful wooden 12 metres racing. Sailing conditions were perfect. We were fortunate to watch one of the races and catch a few images. Enjoy! The next racing series will be in Copenhagen, followed by Monaco, Newport, Cannes and St. Tropez. Nothing as spectacular as the waters off Marstrand, of course. _______________________ These yachts are wonderful to watch also… Read More
