Paulo your blog is looking fantastic.
Thanks Chall,

In fact Jimmy Cornell had chose Allures for his boat a long way back. He has been maintaining a collaboration with them, or better, Allures with him, in what regards sponsoring his books. I guess that the guys from Allures never expected that there was so many sailors (3) interested in a boat designed for high latitudes.

The Allures 45, that is the base for the Cornell boat have been a big sales success and his in fact a more overall balanced boat than the Exploration 45, better in more cruising situations and faster. I guess that in France there are lots of guys interested in going into the cold and not only, a friend of mine wants my collaboration in what regards a Northeast passage...I will give it to him on the condition of not going on that voyage The boat will be designed by Tony Castro.

Regards

Paulo
