a hell of a year
After finishing of our second season with the Seascape 18, which got nicely rounded out by our 100-boats-sold party, 2011 kicked of with some momentum. Not only the racing circuit shifted into a higher gear with Austrian and French Seascape National Championships announced for Grand Prix Ecole Navale on June 2nd in Brest and Pfingsten regata on June 10th in Velden, but also the cruising aspect of Seascape (yes, cruising!) is getting more and more credibility with cruising reports from Croatian More, French Voiles et Voilers and German Yacht magazines.
If someone knows about modern sportboats that must be French, so it came as a pleasant surprise that we got elected sportboat of choice by Voiles et Voilers. Now also in translation. Also a note for UK and Italian sailors – we have new active representatives in both markets: Peter Wanstall for UK and Massimo Farina and Alessandro Boato for ITA.
And finally we got first boats to Lake Garda. That was eagerly expected since we knew low weight – high hull stability concept should fit perfectly to 20+ knots conditions that are normal for that part of the world. And we were not disappointed. Endless surfs and effortless upwinds without "rail meat" on the side were the reason Sportcamp Stickl decided to go for Seascapes to revive their monohull school programmes.
