Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paulo, I fully agree with you. Orso bianco is a kind of Noah's ark (polar bears are neither fast, nor very good swimmers). I wonder why a well respected magazine like Vela has paid attention in five pages to this boat. When reading an article from a professional source one takes it for granted even when it defies physics and common sense. It is very much strange if you consider that the man has a diploma from the Academy of Fine Arts in Italy, a country where a lot of attention is paid to good design and velocity in terms of boat building. I would not want such a boat but will be curious to sail it in really bad weather in order to check whether it is really so much seaworthy and comfortable as claimed.

Regards
Rumen
