And it looks promising. Nine out of 10 already built Soto 40’s – (Drumbeat is now on Lake Macatawa, US) – entered the first South American S40 Circuit. Now I know you will like this: whoever gets first wins, no rule actualization costs, no big-gun sailors allowed on the helm (Torben Grael owns a S40 and his son helms it) and no protest commission. All decisions are made on the water. Judges follow the boats on rubber boats, just like in a match race.
This first circuit has a solid sponsor (Mitsubishi) and the final prize for the circuit winner will be a SUV whose price is a third of a new boat’s price. Cool, isn´t? Anarchist Antonio.
