Re: Anything like Borresen BB10

Wow!
Brings back memories!

We had BB10 US1, bought in 1981. She was from Denmark and from what the moulds were made to produce them in Florida. Previously brought from Denmark was DK 50.

Went to weather like crazy! 70* or less between tacks. Other boats swore we were sailing straight into the wind. I was spoiled forever.

She needed little wind to sail, but did get wet when it blew.

Once in a good breeze, a Hobie 16 couldn't overtake us, so turned away.
