Our friend Aurelio, who is the owner/sailor of this lovely little craft, sent me these photos a couple of weeks ago.
He shares the following …
Uffa 10 Trimaran with New Rig
Both the mast+boom come from C-Tech composites (in Auckland, New Zealand). The sail, however, comes from Italy (Ducksail).
This new rig works very well. The best speed achieved so far, which is a record for our 10 ft trimaran class, was about 10.8 knots (running).
I like the simplicity of maneuvering and speed of tack. The boat is the same as sloop version (there is only the new mast in forward hole deck). Now I do not need to change anything … but in future, I want test a little gennaker with a snuffer on bowsprit.
We are sailing on the northern lakes of Italy and Venice lagoon (see http://www.velalonga.com/ for more on this area). We are a member in the Diecipiedi Class Regattas. — Aurelio
