& Carkeek GP 42 Iberdrola and Quebarmar, sailing with the crew of
Desafio Español. The boat looks good, but we wonder about these
things. Mini TP 52’s in nature and surely very fast, but they look a bit
brutal going upwind here,
and they aren’t going to win many beauty contests. Expensive as hell and
somewhat limited in their intentions, with a number of them now on the
market, we think this class may have a fairly short life. We do know that
they operate in a different world of sponsorship and "big time"
racing, but what do you think? Thanks to Nico
Martinez for the shot and www.felo-tombeur.blogspot.com for the heads up.
