Ok. Apart from that,
you write it Graz without the "t"
After signing Contract
at the Boatshow, we have had a clause that the Contract
will only be closed after a satisfaying Testsail. So there we were on a cold but sunny February morning at La Grande Motte. Ready to embark an Outremer
5X, with a good northerly Blow.
To make a long story short, the Boat
did very well under all circumstances. Wind
up til 25 Knots. The Boat
was reaching under Jib
, we did easaliy 15 Knots, close hauled -top speed was over 10 Kn. Tacking was a pleasure, no matter which was Daggerboard down. The 5X is a real Pleasure to sail, and we always felt very safe.
So we were impressed and that is how it started.
We signed in 3 Days ago for the World ARC
