Reflection #2: Impressions of S/Y Colombe

no images were found

What to say about a classic designed Swan from 1979, the lean and mean racing machine?

First thing is that such a classic racing boat certainly has a charm you feel directly. The very spartan interior doesn’t change the instant affection for the boat, not to mention the sailing.

Cool to be on such a boat during the race for La Ruta de la Sal. Everyone focused on speed and speed only. A slight change in wind and everyone was running to change the sail for the newborn circumstances.

Yelling heist, heist, heist and the Genua 3 was changed into a Genua 4 in less then a minute. Lot of sails and lines on a racing boat although. Could still prefer a good old cruising boat for sailing the Ancient Coasts.

Below my impression of Sailing Yacht Colombe.
