The JPK 1010 has already won the Transquadra 4 times, but also the Fastnet Overall (also in double!) and an incredible number of races with reduced crew. With the JPK 1010 as a reference it is clear that the challenge is great to improve the overall performance of the boat once again.
No compromises in performance
So how can performance be further improved within the IRC regulations without making a compromise that results in a bad performance evaluation? The only possibility for Jacques Valer was to lose a bit of versatility and full team suitability, and thus to adapt and improve the priorities to the solo and double performance: fast starts, a great course accuracy and generally a lot of ease at all speeds.
Lighter and narrower on deck
Lighter, narrower on deck, narrower in the keel line, fuller in the front sections, designed so the crew can work comfortably despite wet surfaces and not need too much sail area. The concept is clearly ambitious to work with all racing formats of single and double crew!
JPK 10.30 in Pictures
The type of keel has also been changed, allowing the mass to be significantly reduced with the same performance as that of the 1010. Inside, the ballasts remain an interesting option to increase torque and allow more play on the water.
Moreover, Jacques Valer's genius and the many months dedicated to the design of this very elaborate hull should allow the JPK 10.30 to expand the series of champions at JPK.
