Hello, my name is Jan Andreas,
I am sailing since the age of 5 in France at the atlantic cost. I am living and working in Germany, but I love the see. I have a house at the French Atlantic cost, Pointe de Penmarc'h which is a really very nice and intersting sailiong area. Sailing area, is West-cost of france, Silly Islands, Irish Sea, Atlantic cost West Europe. Since the age of 15 I always had my own sailing boat. But 3 Years ago I had to sell my boat, an old wooden boat, which I had completely renovated to pay the divorce of my ex wife. I still have a small fishing boat with a Sail, but this has nothing to do with sailing. Now I am back again and I am looking for a trimaran. This is a dream I have for a long time.
I have found a boat in England a Telstar Tri 8 m, which is quite intersting or a 9.5 m trimaran which is an old design from Eric Tabarly.
Does someone has experience with the Tristar trimarans?
As I am sailing not only in nice conditions and taking my son with me, I am needing a safe boat.
I am a specialist of fuel cell energy supply systems, if someone wants to electrifiy his boat with a fuel cell or an electrical motor, I can help him , to choose the right components. For me this is the real future, because producing electricity on board without making any noise or any polution is the right way.
