Let RCR Find Your Next Boat, or Sell Your Existing One!
What’s New? By Tim Finkle:  Most of last week and early into this week was spent in Annapolis for the annual sailboat show.  It was my first time at the show and there was A LOT to look at!  We were busy moving between our displays at Beneteau, J/boats, and C&C/Alerion.  Beneteau has the biggest of the setups with models ranging from the new First ASA 22 up to the biggest Oceanis and Sense models.  Beneteau sold 26 new boats over the week, including one of their newest Beneteau 60s.  We were talking on the flight home about how we felt proud that we represented the brands that we do.  We feel that Beneteau offers the best product in the cruising sector, J/boats in the racer/cruiser sector, Alerion in the daysailing sector and the new C&C 30 OD in the high-performance racing sector.  These manufacturers all build quality products and we could see that when compared to the other brands at the show.
On Friday morning, before the show was open to the public, Dad and I went for a walk around the docks to look at other displays and some learning for me as Dad explained stuff to me.  When we got to the Gunboat display, our jaws dropped.  If you have had the pleasure of seeing one of these luxury, high performance catamarans in person, then you know what I’m talking about (  Lucky for us, we saw Peter Johnstone there who is the President of Gunboat and yes, another one of those Johnstones.  He remembered Dad instantly and reminded him that RCR sold him his first used J/24 back in the 80’s after he graduated as an All American from my alma mater, Connecticut College.  Peter was great to talk to and brought us aboard the Gunboat 55 for a private and detailed tour.  He told us a lot about the company and the design and build of these boats, they are currently working on new designs that allow these boats to foil.  It was a definite highlight of the show for me.
We also attended the Sail America breakfast one early morning before the show where seemingly everyone from the industry was in attendance.  We had several presentations.  The best news was that US Sailing and Sail America are going to work together at the grass roots level to grow sailing.  They felt that there were many groups out there working in a silo trying to help grow the sport, but not all working together.  US Sailing is going to take the reigns for this effort.  There is not a name to the program yet, but we will be sure to pass along more info as we hear more.
It was a good week in Annapolis and we were able to see many of our customers there.  RCR gave out nearly 200 tickets, shows how much our customers enjoy being there.  Corbo stayed in Annapolis for the first day of the Powerboat show, coming home last night.  More of our customers will be there for this show too.  Our Back Cove and Sabre power lines will be in full display.
I was able to take the new Beneteau First ASA (American Sailing Assocation) 22 out for a demo sail.  I wrote about it in the “Stories” section below. 
Skip Doyle Inducted into the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame:  Last night we attended the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2014 Induction Dinner.  RCR was a sponsor and there to support our friend and fellow Youngstown Yacht Club member, Skip Doyle for his long and successful sailing career.  Skip had over 100 friends and family in attendance, clearly one of the biggest groups of supporters of all the inductees.  Shows how much respect we have for Skip and what he’s done for sailing in our area.  Here is an article in the Buffalo News on his accomplishments:

Swiftwater Sail & Power Squadron Boat Simulator: We are very excited at Swiftwater Sail & Power Squadron about having the opportunity to have this powerboat simulator here in Buffalo.  There are presently only six simulators available in the entire U.S.!

Sea Trial on the Beneteau First ASA 22, by Tim Finkle: 
Beneteau had two of the brand new ASA First 22’s at the Annapolis Boat show (it’s debut), one at their Beneteau display alongside all their other models and one taking out customers who wished to go for a test sail.  It was constantly out so I guess people were interested.  On Monday afternoon, when most of the crowds had died down, I was able to get out on the demo boat and see what it was all about.  I was joined by Justin Joyner, the Beneteau Power Sales Manager, who was also out on the boat for the first time.  We had very little breeze, less than 5 knots, but it was enough to move around the harbor a little bit and get a feel for the boat and the basic components.
My first impression of the boat was how easy it was to rig and how easy it was to sail.  It was designed as a training boat, but can also be a great little daysailer for 2-6 people on a weekend since you can just let off a mooring and be sailing in under 5 minutes.  It is very stable and when I stepped onboard from the dock it did not tip much at all.  We took the brand new spinnaker out of the box and tested it for the first time.  We took some pictures, nobody had tried it yet so I couldn’t resist when I was told I could rig it up.  Again, very easy to sail and I was able to gybe the spin all by myself while driving from the back of the boat.  It’s a small reaching spinnaker (gennaker really) that is not overpowering for new sailors to learn with.  It comes with all the rigging and hardware so skills learned on this boat would be transferrable to most larger keel boats.  The First 22 would be great for an adult sailing program since you can fit several couples in the roomy cockpit, not so easy in most 22 footers. The price is very attractive too, basing at $29,900 with sails.   

The boat is very comfortable and from what I can tell will be dry, it’s a “sit in” type boat with a large cockpit that could easily get 6 people in there, with the security of lifelines too.  It has a high freeboard and a small coachroof that will block the waves.  Plenty of room down below but it is relatively unfinished down there.  That is fine seeing that it is meant to be a training and daysailing boat, the main purpose is storage and place for a head.  For those who want more accommodation (how much can you fit on a boat of this size anyway?) there is the First 21 model based on the same hull.
The boat had a stack pack with lazy jacks so with a quick unzip of the sail cover and 2 pulls on the main halyard, the fully battened square top main was up.  The jib is rigged onto a furling system and again, 2 pulls and it was out and flying.  The gennaker is rigged to a tackline that runs through an eye on the “bow sprit” which is really just a fiberglass extension off the bow.  The hoisting and dousing of that is very simple since it is so small.  When we weren’t using it, we stowed it down below and it was out of the way, you could get a proper bag for it down there so you could keep it rigged.  The mainsheet on this boat was dead-ended to the center of the cockpit but the other boat on display had a traveler, so you can have the option of your choice.  The jib sheets were lead to an adjustable jib car on a track and straight to cabin top winches.  The boat really is setup to have all the necessary training tools needed.

There are twin rudders and a motor bracket with a small outboard between them that is very easily accessible and a bench across the stern to sit on while operating the motor.  The tiller and extension are small but fine if you are sitting in the boat, I would consider an extendable tiller extension if trying to race the boat so you could sit out and further forward.  I should note that this is not meant to be a high performance racing boat like a Melges 20 or J/70, it is meant to introduce new learning sailors or to use as a nice, simple sturdy daysailer.  I won’t suggest that it points very high or planes downwind because it won’t and that is not the intention.  I think that if we are trying to build up our sport and introduce more sailors to the experience where they feel safe and want to have fun, then boats like these need to exist.  Beneteau and ASA teaming up is good for sailing and hopefully this will catch on and get more people involved.

New Boats News:
New J/112e, ready for Spring 2015 launch!  While at the Annapolis Boat Show last week, we spoke with Jeff and Al Johnstone about this new design.  They were excited about their latest new baby.  It has a somewhat higher freeboard for headroom and a cruising interior, a bit different than most of the recent J models we are used to seeing.  It still maintains the fine handling and performance traits of other J’s.

Dual Purpose:  36 feet is a magic size in the J/Boats line-up. With a spacious two-cabin accommodation plan and a comfortable, ergonomic cockpit, the all-new J/112E is as well suited for the annual cruise as she is sprinting to Mackinaw Island or short-handing through rough weather. Versatility in sailboat design means not only a sailboat that can do many things, but one that can do them across a wide range of conditions, both fair and adverse.
Upwind is a Breeze – Downwind is a Blast:  The J/112E joins her sisterships, the J/97E and J/122E, as an exceptional upwind performer. V-shaped bow sections provide superior directional stability and reduced slamming in waves.  Freeboard forward and topside flare help to keep the deck dry. A long waterline combined with a low vertical center of gravity results in a smooth, sea-kindly motion - more like that of a 40 footer. J/112E is a moderate displacement design with a high aspect, non-overlapping sailplan. This efficient set-up provides ample sail power in light winds (while most others are motoring), and easy to down-shift options when the wind builds. J’s are known for being able to sail well under mainsail alone, jib alone, and nearly any combination of mainsail and small jib. The J/112E is no exception. All one needs is a mainsail and 105% jib to enjoy easy, high performance sailing in winds from 5 to 25 knots.  For downwind fun with minimal effort and crew, one can deploy the asymmetric spinnaker from the retractable carbon sprit.
Designed to Sail: Owners have been sailing their J’s offshore for years and their enthusiastic feedback has fueled J/Boats’ continuous pursuit of designing the world’s most comfortable sailing boats. Comfort at sea means more than nice backrests (which by the way the J/112E has). “Sailing comfort” means sailing without stress - like having clear visibility from the helm station; easy access to vital sail controls to allow short-handed sailing; a smooth sea-kindly motion that’s easier on the stomach; numerous handholds and foot braces both above and below decks for secure movement; and a highly maneuverable boat that is easy to dock or moor in tight places. Sailboats that inspire confidence (and reduce stress) inspire their owners to sail more. Maybe that’s why J/ sailors spend so much time sailing.

Alerion Yacht New Video and Updated Website:  Alerion Yachts just released a new video (, which is designed to deliver a strong performance message alongside the easy-to-sail pretty daysailer one.

The video is also placed front and center on their recently updated website.

Flea Market & Small Boat Place:
NEW Carbon Fiber Spinnaker Pole (without end fittings):  Was purchased for a Beneteau 36.7 as a spare spinnaker pole. Selling for $1000, retail is nearly double that price.  Call Jim Egloff at 716-525-3228 or email
NEW North Sails Asymmetrical Spinnaker with Sock:  Great shape, basically brand new.  Made for a Newport 27S.  I tried it out on my Newport 27mkII and it fit great.  Would work for any boat this size like a Catalina 27 or C&C 27.  This sail belongs to one of our customers and is a steal at $700. I have it in my possession if you wish to see it.   If interested contact Darren 572-2312 or
Freedom 35 Cover and Cradle:  The cradle is custom made and has four screw pads on either side. The cover was only used one season and is like new but may need to be modified a little bit as it was made to accommodate the radar arch. $500.00 for each item. Contact or (716) 628-2531
Steel cradle for 37' sailboat. $750.  Presently fitted for Hunter 376. Contact Corbo, Broker, RCR Yachts Rochester 585-752-2530
