June 2008: 2 news catégories, Quarters Tonners and Formule 40 (on Excel), I have not enought information on them to be "historique", it is more like "indications". And more than usually, I am looking for more and more informations...
These 2 catégories are difficult
Quarters Tonners, because many ship have been built over the year everywhere in the world.
Formule 40, very good idea, but very short (3-4 years) experience due to the lack of media exposure.
29th of February 2008, 2nd year: more than 72500 visits! The hit are minis's pages. Do not hesitate to send news to complete ship's files. Last infos received: half tonners "Ar Reder Mor" Joubert 82 et "Alonzo Bistro" Berret 76 are for sale, some news from 79's mini Tiki 21, and from others minis.
18th of January 08, new mail address: email@example.com
24th of October 2007: Due to computer problems and lake of time, only "half tonners" have been updated. I will do it later, in February 2008.
10th of June 2007, 2 more "history of...": Figaro 2' monotype and 40' monohull, Open and Class 40.
4th of March 2007: One year on line.. Many Thanks to the 25 000 visitors.
After the Half tonner test, and with the same adress, I decided to do more "history of ...".
You can find few "history of ...". Later one, you will find some others "history of ... " (Open 50', TP 52...)
My main source are nautical review, (Bateaux, Neptune Nautisme, Les Cahiers du Yachting, Course au Large, Voiles et Voiliers, and a few Seahorse) and now Internet.
May be some omission or mistake, I am waiting for more and more informations from you...
