Mega 30 (C&C) FK

Mega 30 (C&C) FK is a 29 ′ 11 ″ / 9.1 m monohull sailboat designed by Peter Barrett and built by C&C Yachts starting in 1977.

Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64) 2/3

  • SA : Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D : Displacement in pounds.

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam 1.33 )

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

The last 27 MEGA 30’s were built in the US. (Hull #s CCYM0039-80 to CCYM0065-80) The drop-keel feature of the the earlier MEGA ONE-DESIGN was abandoned in favor of a fixed keel. The boat was also sold in a number of other countries. In Sweden it is known as the RUNN RACER 912.

Does anybody know any thing about a "mega 30" sailboat made by c and c? I have heard they are the "edsels" of sailboats, i heard they were fast . I heard they were cheesy.I heard they were the quintessential trailer-sailor if you had a big enough rig to haul them. I heard all sorts of things. Trouble is, I don't know what is true and what is bogus.Perhaps someone out there does. Also would it be a good boat to sail on a 500 square mile lake ,(fair weather sailing) kept mostly at a berth(weekends and overnighters). And would it be a good first sailboat assuming it was in decent shape?Would appreciate you input no matter how depressing....Thanks  

The Mega 30's do sail nicely. They were designed to be trailerable one design racers. Although it was not a really successful boat, they did sell some. I have heard from several souces that the centreboard lifting mechanism on the original model is prone to failure. A fixed keel version was also offered. By now, a lot of the CB boats have had fixes - either in the form of fixed keels or modified lifting gear. You could do far worse. The Mega is probably the cheapest 30 footer on the market, and if you are planning on sailing it on an inland lake - it's probably an ideal boat. C&C built them as strongly as they could, but the trailerability factor dictated that they could not be built to the same specs as the standard C&C 30 or comparable boat. This boat is not a cruiser, although you can cruise on it. It should be classed with boats like the Kirby 30, Laser 28, even the Etchells and Solings, as it is designed for daysailing and the accomodations are incidental. Look here for more info: C&C Yachts - C&C Photo Album & Resource Center Good Luck ! Let us know what you decide to do  

c&c mega 30 sailboat

There is a Mega 30 in our club. It has a fixed keel and is very well taken care of. The fellow that sails it is a top flight sailor who has owned many boats. He wins most of the races at the club in his mega. It is very fast. The interior is spartan but cruisable. It is a bit funny looking but most of the time I only get to see the stern!  

Like anything else, if you decide to buy one, try it out first. The one I've seen seems to sail on its side, literally. A bit bizarre to look at. Very steep heel angle. Not convinced this is the right first boat. In this range try a standard C&C 30, tartan, sabre, ericson 30+. I think you will be far happier with it. Marvin  

I know this is probably a few years too late but I like to respond to C&C Mega 30 postings as there is so little information. I happen to be one of the few owners, I believe there were 150 or so manufactured. My Mega is hull number 68 and was actually owned and raced by George Cuthbertson. It was raced in several races of her first six months and the major being the Southern Offshore. I've been trying to find out her standings but no luck to date. The second owner raced her a lot on Lake Ontario and has many winnings and trophies including runs from Chicago to Toronto. Things to know about a Mega 30: - she's fast and really loves sailing on the beam especially if you can get the Spinnaker up. Under spin she will go fast enough to change the apparent wind to close hauled. - she's hard chined, basically, will layover and dig in when running close hauled with lots of sail. Not for the faint of heart. She seems to love 25 degrees of heel. - on the downwind... she's a planning hull... you will feel her lift and go - she's a race boat with race boat quarters... better than most, worse than some - she's trailerable and probably the largest trailerable. Launch time takes about 1.5 to 2 hours and can be done by one but mast handling really requires two. All in all, I will never part with my Mega as she gives more rush and enjoyment than you will ever experience on another boat. She's a racer, you better be too... Modifications that I've done: - North Sails 3DL - weight reduction, especially up top on the main. - Oversized roach on the main with a running backstay flicker - Repositioned running rigging for single handling, including spinnaker I sail in the Pacific Northwest, Vancouver Island and have also sailed her on inland prairie lakes. She loves big winds and I enjoy taking her into them.  

Teammega if you're still around I'd like to ask some questions about these CC 30 mega boats. I'm in the PNW and am looking at a mega as a second boat (my first was a macgregor 25) my main requirement is that whatever boat i choose needs to be trailerable and have a retractable keel for launching in lakes as well. Main use will be smaller inland lakes and eventually out to the San Juans.

I doubt there are any of those unless you can find a Mega getting scrapped, probably you'll have to get them made or make them yourself. You can try the C&C mailing list, C&C Yachts - C&C Photo Album & Resource Center or there's an ever-growing Facebook group too, https://www.facebook.com/groups/341181792745950

The owners of the magazine Good Old Boat have a Mega 30 named Sunflower, try getting a hold of them. There is also a great write up done by them as well. The article is in issue 100, the January/February 2015 printing written by Rob Mazza, one of the senior designers at C&C Yachts. There used to be a Mega 30 in the yard of Sneade Island Boatworks in Palmetto Florida...this was 3 years ago, but it did not look like it was going anywhere soon as it was sitting in the back corner....

C&C 30 – blistering performance in a manageable package

  • Belinda Bird
  • July 31, 2015

The C&C 30 strikes a good balance between performance and handling, believes Matthew Sheahan. She’s a fast ride, but without the jitters

c&c mega 30 sailboat

All photos: Ocean Images

Today, going like the clappers downwind is easy; anyone can do it. But there are two basic approaches: there is eye-watering, fixed-grin, backside-twitchingly quick, with the boat balanced on a knife edge, and there’s clocking the same numbers without the jitters.

In the latter case the boat knows where to go and encourages you to follow by gradually loading the helm as if starting a friendly arm wrestle. Push her too far and you’ll still end up on your ear, but at least you will have had plenty of warning.

Developing a balance between performance and handling has been a tough nut to crack. How do you produce slender, high-lift foils with minimal drag without creating a lifting surface that operates like the flick of a switch? Such binary hydrodynamic behaviour has taxed modern yacht designers for years, but the lessons learned aboard the big boys’ VO70s, mini maxis and TP52s, among others, have been filtering down into the smaller size ranges.

Then there’s the issue of deck layouts and control line systems. Again, the big guns have led the way with innovative details and devices to help crews change gear from the weather rail as they hike over the guardwires.

But not everything that has filtered down has been appropriate. Just as the complexity and power of a modern F1 racing car makes it impossible to pull away without stalling for anyone other than a seasoned racing driver, so not all the high technology aboard professionally run grand-prix machines works for the rest of us.

Striking the balance is the key. And that’s where the Mark Mills-designed C&C30 stands out in the new breed of 30ft raceboats.

This is a design that takes the best bits of modern high performance and wraps them up with a deck layout that will look and feel familiar to a wide range of crews, yet launch them onto a new level of performance.

Technology where it’s needed

Throughout the boat it is clear that the strategy has been to employ technology where it makes a difference while keeping things simple elsewhere. The best example is the Hall Spars carbon mast supported by 1×19 Dyform wire rigging with ordinary T-terminals on the top and open-bodied bottlescrews at the bottom.

But there are plenty of other examples, from the simple hanks on the headsails to transverse genoa tracks and control lines fitted and run above decks with rope tidy bags. Even when lines do need to go under the deck to prevent crew from standing on them at crucial times, they do so through recessed channels in the deck, which are covered by easily removable lids.

Down below there’s a similarly practical approach. Sparse though her interior is, with little headroom thanks to the flush deck, she still has basic seating and cushions with the provision for hingeing pipecots, a heads and even a small galley should you wish to take her offshore. She has no mast jack, but she has a simple rigging screw-driven adjustable mast foot to allow you to alter the mast rake.

She's easier to keep in the groove than others of her ilk

She’s easier to keep in the groove than others of her ilk

The C&C30 also has very few openings in the deck, a rarity aboard modern raceboats, which can look like pepper pots from the inside. Despite taking several waves over the foredeck on our downhill slide and a few thumps through the chop upwind, she had less than half a bucket of water in the bilges at the end of our test sail, most of which was shipped when a wave came over the bow just before the kite drop and the foredeck hatch was open.

Look a little closer and there are some very neat ideas, among them the non-retractable, but detachable bowsprit. This can be removed when the boat is at rest by untying the bobstay that runs from the bow to the tip of the sprit and back through its centre to emerge below, where it is attached to the main bulkhead. This allows the sprit to be pulled out of its socket and stowed.

Another clever detail is the constrictor lock for the main halyard, which is operated below decks, along with the halyard itself – simple and effective.

On deck the low-friction bullseye fairleads have been set up to allow cross sheeting of the genoa sheets, and the position of the primary winches make this system easy to use from the weather rail.

Overall the deck layout has been well thought out, with everything within easy reach. One particular detail is the ability for the mainsheet trimmer to move behind the helmsman on the downwind leg without having to thread the mainsheet under the tiller – handy when the breeze is up.

Easy to get on with

The C&C30 is a boat that is very easy to get on with so long as you let her talk you through where she wants to go. Unlike the superlight, almost neutral feel of many modern machines, the helm loads up significantly, but smoothly if you stray too far outside the sail trim envelope. As always, whether sailing upwind or down, fighting the helm is a cue to talk to your trimmers, but here the feedback is that bit clearer, which helps you to stay in the groove.

She doesn’t have such aggressive chines aft as other boats of her ilk and appears to carry less rocker here too. As a result, she tends not to squat down by the stern and lift her bow when you send her downwind. To get her to accelerate and stay on the plane you still need to press her to get around 5° of heel, but the transition is much smoother than others of this type.

Upwind feedback through the helm was clear and unequivocal

Upwind feedback through the helm was clear and unequivocal

This can feel a little odd at first if you are more used to the bow-up trim of other downhill flyers. It also means you have to plan the gusts a little more carefully to avoid putting the handbrake on as you bear away.

But make no mistake, she’s quick. In 16-18 knots of true breeze we were sliding along at 14-16 knots with ease. Such relatively docile handling will inspire confidence, particularly with those making the transition from heavier, conventional boats to something a little more saucy.

And therein lies what I believe is the key to the C&C30; she’s a modest, manageable and practical package that is capable of a blistering performance.

It is inevitable that she will be compared with the Farr 280, especially as both boats were launched at around the same time. Broadly speaking, they look similar and have little to separate them on the technical spec sheets. With a basic price tag of US$137,390 ex works USA, the C&C30 is slightly more expensive, but in the same ball park.

But the best thing about this boat is that she’s another in the growing band of sporty 30-footers. All want to be tomorrow’s successful one-design, and maybe some of them will be, but in the meantime her arrival adds another model into this growing fleet of sportsboats. Everyone can go quickly downhill, it’s just how you choose to do it that is different. And now there’s even more choice.

The C&C30 takes the best of high-performance design, but with a clever, conventional-seeming deck layout

T31A5261

Vinylester/E Glass/foam core construction throughout. The structural grid includes carbon fibre. A 12hp Volvo inboard diesel engine is standard

T31A5195

A well laid-out cockpit makes the C&C30 easy to get to grips with. I felt the foot rest bars were a little too low to give good support, however

T31A5265

Unbolting the keel plate allows the 2.30m deep fin and bulb keel to be raised by 600mm to make it easier to trail the boat. She can also be lifted on a central point

AY7Q6543

The bowsprit can be removed easily when moored by detaching the bobstay that runs through the centre of the pole and into the boat. This also helps to prevent lines getting caught under the pole

T31A5258

No mast jack, but a simple rigging screw adjustment to move the mast heel forward and aft to rake the rig

T31A5294

Car control lines run under the deck to make crew movement easier and safer, but do so in covered recesses rather than running through the accommodation.

Stearn Sailing Systems Furler Steam Twinstay One / Dynafurl One Troubleshooting The standard considerations in all furling system installations are: Halyard angle -- angle should be aft of parallel to the luff when the sail is fully hoisted. On many masthead arrangements this will require a halyard pullback device installed on the mast. (See Accessories) Halyard Swivel Height -- halyard swivel should be within 12" of the halyard sheave when the sail is fully hoisted. On shorter sails, this will require a wire pennant attached to the sail at the top (for performance), or at the bottom (for visibility). To check Halyard Swivel height, or to measure for a pennant, carefully hoist the Halyard Swivel with the sail attached to it, but not attached at the tack. When sail is fully hoisted measure from the tack of the sail to the tack pin, or shackle, on the furling drum. Pennant should be 6-12" shorter than this measurement and preferably, attached directly to the sail. Furling line Angle -- furling line should enter the drum at 90 degrees to the luff. This is achieved by adjusting the position of the furling line block or fairlead closest to the furling drum. Furling line Tension -- Furling line should always be under tension when the sail is being unfurled. Leading the line through a ratchet block mounted aft of the operator is usually a big help. Furling line Jam -- there should not be so much line on the drum that it binds against the drum cover when fully wound for any particular sail. Start with the sail rolled up. There should not be more than 3 wraps on the drum when the sail is tightly furled with the sheets wrapped around it twice. If you cannot get enough line on the drum to completely unfurl the sail, then the line you are using is too large. Reduce line size or, remove the core in the forward third of a braided line. "Coring" the line will reduce the amount of space it takes up and cause it to lie flatter on the drum. This should be done in all furling installations using standard braided line, as it reduces fouling and overrides while still giving you a full diameter line in the cockpit. Some systems, notably Hyde and Stearns, are best suited for wire/rope furling lines in many applications. (See Accessories) If you are experiencing trouble with your Stearns system that is not related to any of those items above, it is usually one of the following problems: System doesn't rotate smoothly - With reduced backstay tension and no tension on the furling line, grab the drum and rotate the system by hand. If it feels rough or bumpy it is time to replace the Terminal End bearings, torque nuts, and O-rings. (See Bearing Replacement Kits) Hard to furl - If you've already checked the Terminal Ends (System doesn't rotate smoothly, above) then it's time to check the halyard swivel. Lower the sail and rotate the top of the Halyard Swivel while holding the bottom. It should rotate smoothly and easily. If not, you need to replace the Halyard Swivel bearing. (See Bearing Replacement) Also be sure to check the white Delrin Inserts between the halyard swivel and the rod. Make sure that they are firmly in place and that they fit snugly against the rod. If they are sufficiently worn they can allow the Halyard Swivel to cock to one side. This will increase the effort needed to furl and they should be replaced.  

I have a little over $350 of steel, winches, straps, hardware, paint, welding rod etc. into the slings plus my time & labor to build them. $500 would buy both slings and the new 5000lb Kinedyne straps, complete.  

Keel Hoist Maintenance Proper lubrication of the keel hoist screw jack nut assembly is mandatory to ensure that the electric keel hoist winch motor is not damaged due to overloading. This will also ensure that excessive battery current is not used, thereby providing maximum battery use from each charge. The screw should be lubricated with a spray type lubricant. GE silicone spray and WD 40 are two commonly available brands. Simply start at the top of the slot on each side of the aft post. Operate the spray and spray down to the bottom of the slot. This should be done each time the keel is cycled or often enough to prevent corrosion if the system is seldom activated. It should also be lubricated prior to the first operation during spring commissioning and before the final operation prior to fall layup. The keel is a solid iron casting. It will require periodic painting with paints recommended by your dealer for your local sailing waters. There is a bronze roller at the aft bottom end of the keel trunk. While the boat is in the water, it is water lubricated. It should be lubricated periodically if kept on a trailer and in the spring and fall before and after commissioning and fall layup with silicone. The electric winch motor should be lubricated according to the manufacturer's specifications. The chain and sprockets should be lubricated with powdered graphite or dry chain lubricant every five cycles of the keel or once a month - which ever comes first. The top screw jack bearing should be lubricated every two years by your C&C dealer.

I would probably buy them if you lived nearby . I am a 4 hour drive from you. . You live in a beautiful area I have been out camping in that area . Great place for a mega .  

Lklansingkiter said: Let me know what you are asking for your slings. I just acquired 6 sailboat stands for 250$ so that will allow me to raise the boat and see what I can do about the keel. I am a little nervous I may run into problems with the keel mechanism that is beyond my capability but we shall see. I guess I will be able to work on it without removing it. I am wondering about how you replace this bronze bushing that is supposed to be located on the forward part of the keel well. I don't know how you tell if it is bad. I am afraid that when I take the rust off the keel there may not be anything left. This boat was trailered with the keel up in the past and there is an old repair aft of the keel on the outside and the floor is showing some cracks aft of the keel. Click to expand

Keel Paul I am almost ready to lift my boat to work on the keel. Do you plan to work on it installed or to remove it completely. I am going to try a wire brush ange grinder first with the keel still installed . Here is a picture of my "Moon "crater keel". Larry

I have got her raised up between 2 trees . I brought in a sandblasting company that took the keel down to bare metal in one hour . I put 3 coats of por 15 on the bare metal. The por 15 directions are a little scattered but one section said you don't need to put acid on sandblasted metal . I am now a little worried about not doing that but I guess we shall see. Next I need to put filler on top of the por15 . Por15 makes a filler for this

The Mega's long sleek look in the water, wide aft - open style transom, large cockpit, 30 footer with tiller steering, 2300lb cast iron retractable keel, trailerable, and a ton of things that can be done to improve it both in performance and aesthetics.
