  • Be Prepared! by Lagoon Inside

    July 31, 2013

    The notions of safety and comfort onboard a blue water cruising boat are always something very personal. Indeed, two boats making the same trip will not necessarily have the same equipment!

    François, a very pleasant Lagoon 400 owner, plans to join the Mediterranean to sail several months a year. But before that he wants to test himself and his crew on the occasion of the famous “ARC” transatlantic rally. He recently asked me for advice on preparing his Lagoon in terms of equipment and safety.

  • BLUE WATER SAILING Magazine reviews the Jeanneau 469

    July 26, 2013

    BLUE WATER SAILING Magazine - August 2013
    "Last February, after the Miami Strictly Sail boat show at Miamarina, we had a chance to spend a couple of hours sailing the new Sun Odyssey 469 that had been introduced at the show in the tropical waters off Miami Beach. We joined Jeanneau America’s President Paul Fenn and Erik Stromberg, Jeanneau’s Sailboat Product Manager, at the Miami Beach Marina and when we got underway we fired up the 75 horsepower Yanmar and motored smartly out through Government Cut to the open ocean."

    The fist set of pictures are all complements of Jeanneau America, more specifically Paul Fenn and Valerie Toomey, who joined us for this years event.

  • A Review on Headsails by LAGOON INSIDE

    June 14, 2013


    14 June 2013 Posted by Alex from Lagoon under Technical world

    The range of foresails on a modern boat has really developed over the past 20 years. The concept of “foresail” may be a bit complex for sailors to understand nowadays. My purpose here is just to give you a few “tips” in order to help you to make the right choice.

    The main criteria for defining a foresail are:

    - the angle of use with regard to the wind,

    - its operating range depending on the strength of the wind.
