Oylmpic Adventre 47

Oylmpic Adventre 47

Finding it hard to get acurate information on the above, particuarly regarding construction: hull and wether it is cored? solid to water line? etc.

any information on average speeds, sail balance, setup and performance in different conditions would be great

also if they have had 'serious' problems with ossmosis that would significantly effect saftey or performance or any other issues/ hints tips to watch out for would be great.

Many thanks

WW
