"D'ESTREE BAY" SHOWING SCHIONNING PERFORMANCE!
A big thank you to David Harris (and any crew members!) for the amazing footage of "D'Estree Bay" (Cosmos 1320) really pushing along and showing just what the design can do. You can read more on David's story on the Testimonial's Page along with comments on the boat and some nice photos of D'Estree Bay.

"JALAN JALAN" LAUNCHED IN DARWIN
"Jalan Jalan" (Waterline 1480) was launched recently, Deb McCombe reports below:
After 14 years of blood, sweat & tears Tony and Maddie Copley finally launched Jalan Jalan (Indonesian for travel) in Darwin yesterday. It was a major exercise to get her out of the shed. Walls and supports had to be removed and she was manoeuvred and turned around those that remained so she could be loaded onto a truck and taken out onto the street. A police escort was required for the half hour nerve wracking, but uneventful journey along one of Darwin’s busiest main roads to the ‘Duck Pond’. The crane arrived and Jalan Jalan was picked up and suspended while the rudders and props were fitted before being gently lowered into the water. The moment of truth! As you can see she sits beautifully. Ross got the waterline right and there is enough antifoul showing to cater for the rig, sails and personal belongings. Smiles all round. After checking all the systems the next ordeal was to get her out through the ‘Duck Pond’ lock for the short motor around to Fannie Bay for one hellava party.

THE BERMUDA 77 LAUNCHED!
The moment we've all been waiting for has arrived! This morning we received news that the first Bermuda 77 was on the water and luckily for us our camera-man Michael was on the ground getting some great shots of the moment. Congratulations to everyone involved, she is a real work of art and has been constructed with a thorough attention to detail that will surely cement her popularity in the future. More photos will be uploaded as they come to hand, and hopefully a few shots once her sea trials are completed.
Again, she looks stunning and we can't wait to see more! For further information on the Bermuda 77 see the design page.
BRAND NEW SCHIONNING WEBSITE!
If you're a regular visitor to the Schionning website you may have noticed a slight change of appearance! We've taken the leap and updated the Schionning Designs website! The new site contains more research material, construction information and up to date pictures and media. The team really wanted to be able to educate those new to catamarans or building one, or both!
Understandably with a rather large site it will take a week or two before the new website is complete with all information, photos and documents - however almost everything you need should already be right here for you. Study Plans can now be downloaded easily, and a photo gallery of each design has been added. There are too many new features to list, so take a look around and let us know what you think. If there is something you'd like to see on the site or you have any feedback please let us know.
Thanks for visiting, and enjoy!

MOJO - WINNER IN 2012 KING'S CUP!
'Mojo' - a G-Force 1500 owned by Peter Wilcox has won the King's Cup mulithull division as well as taking out 1st in the Raja Muda racing event in Malaysia! Peter said about the race: "We have just won the Raja Muda AND Kings Cup double. The boat performed beautifully. It is very forgiving and just trucks upwind, outfooting everything and pointing as high as the IRC monos....ah heaven to sail." Well done to Peter and all who were aboard! Can anything stop this G-Force?
