European boat of the year 2014

The chief testers of the main European magazines are already testing the nominated sailboats for the contest. These are the guys and the lady. They seem sailors to me

They are testing about 20 sailboats, most of them beauties and they are paid for that. That's the kind of job I would not mind to have

The testing had been done in Southampton (England) and Porto Venere, Italy.

They had similar conditions on both locations including strong winds (gusting 40k) to the point that the smaller boats with electric engines had to be towed out of the port.

Certainly we will have great videos out of those tests.

These are some of the tested sailboats while being tested:
