  Hi all, well It's final....

Crystal Clear is leaving her element soon and is coming back to the Balkans....

She is a very sweet boat, that will sail pretty fast in short steep waves, her hulls are amazing, they work together compensating each other....

  Winter we will re rig her. her crab claw schooner, is very complicated, shunting is a drama that takes the fun away from sailing. get it wrong and you're back winded, add a few rocks downwind and it becomes very exciting.......

  Our small proa "WHY NOT?" has a single crab claw, he is a pleasure to sail, he will shunt no problem and he will sail him self all day long. Crystal Clear is hard to shunt, hard to balance and just hard to use....  WE RE RIG!!!!

a clip showing the only strong point of her rig, off wind sailing, where proas don't go.....
