Re: Interesting Sailboats

Hi Paulo,

If you were not a racer and you wanted to sail one of these little mini's across the Atlantic how would they work with far less sail than what we see in the racing. The average man or women could not hold as much sail as the professionals can for 16 days or so on a crossing.

Will we be seeing a lot of these mini's sailing oceans over the next few years? I've got a feeling there will be a lot of them around the world like a swarm of bees.

I've already started saving my pennies and after I sell the Boreal down the road I'm going to get one of these little babies as my final yahoo. They can even bury me in one of them just sitting at the helm six feet under, mast sticking out of the ground as a flag pole.
