Figaro 2

Figaro 2 is the one-design chosen to replace Figaro, for the races alone or with a shorthanded crew including La Solitaire du Figaro. She was designed from a specification written by the sailors, coupled with the expertise of the staff of Marc Lombard. One-design aspect is one of the central points of the conception: the composite infused guarantees the uniformity of weight in the fleet and keel-bulb incorporates calibration weights.

But this boat also came from a need; she is indeed the first one-design really intended for shorthanded offshore races. Her size and weight are driven by regulatory requirements to enable unlimited sailing without special authorization (CE Category A). Ballasts are planned from the beginning and the two rudders provide total control even with autopilot.
