THE OLYMPIC SAILOR NATHALIE BRUGGER CHRISTENS THE “P28 GONET & CIE” FOILER AT GENEVA’S SOCIÉTÉ NAUTIQUE

Geneva, 25 May 2012 – Avant-garde in the design of its structural rig, combined with inverted π-shaped hydrofoils, “P28 Gonet & Cie” was christened by Nathalie Brugger on Wednesday 23 May. On the hard standing by the Société Nautique de Genève, the monohull also unveiled Mk II of her rig, a new profile sail, which gives her even more power. In the presence of two hundred guests, the christening of “P28 Gonet & Cie” was formalised. The godmother was none other than the talented Swiss sailor Nathalie Brugger. Currently involved in preparations to compete in the Olympic Games in London on the Laser, the young helmswoman expressed how keen she was to join a project whose competitive spirit is a reflection of her own, both in terms of sailing and its highly technical development.

Un nuevo integrante de la Clase S 33 One Design…

Existen en el mundo náutico algunos barcos cuyos nombres trascienden varias generaciones escribiendo un riquísimo historial en este deporte. Estas embarcaciones son parte del patrimonio náutico que todavía nos representa.

38ft ORC Lake Racer

CONCEPT

The project came from an owner wish to sail a “one off” racing boat fully optimized for Lake Constance ORC regattas after several years experience on an existing production boat. To achieve such a goal, we were able to use most of the latest technical tools, materials and design developments coming from previous racing projects experience. Because of the sailing location, light wind and flat water condition were always the driving performance factor incorporating an ORC VPP rating system optimization.

El tango dice que “20 años no es nada”, y en el caso de este nuevo Grumete, 40 años tampoco lo son. Hoy se boto el Garufa, un Grumete nuevo en el CNSI, una maravilla de madera artesanal. Lo empezaron en 1972 y con el tiempo, padre (Renzo) e hijo (Daniel) lo completaron en su casa de Lanus.
Mis felicitaciones por este gran logro.
