Hi Thirsty supporters
couple of news from the crew.
THIRSTY version 3.1 will be in the water in 2 weeks, ready for the race to Malibu in January. The works have been enormous since few months with a lot of technical changes (they are still top secret) designed by Fred… A lot of Pauillac brainstorming were necessary to achieve the level where we will be.
The most obvious change will be the bow. Freddy got piss off few times in 2014 when the boat was surfing the waves downwind. Then he ”just” decided to modify the shape of the hull in the front… We have simplified also the systems (electrical, rudder transmission) and the interior. The rig has also been simplified with a slightly shorter mast. We are now waiting for the new carbon mast from France and a first prototype sail. Can’t wait to be in the water.
We have completed our registration today for Pacific Cup 2016. We just miss the safety inspection and we will be good to go.
Below, few top secret pictures.
