For most of us, a 21' ft. sailing boat represents the real essence of sailing.
It's how we learned the basics and how we sharpen our skills. And its still the most responsive, and (in many ways) funny kind of sailing.
"Because the Patagonian strong winds change their direction very often, we need to make fast and easy movement. Therefore, we prefer middle sizes sailboats, ideal to enjoy fast sailing trips with both, experienced and no experienced crew".
Our sailboat GARUFA it's a "Limbo21", a famous Andrew Stewart 21ft. design.
Its fast, stable and safe, designed for competition. It delivers exhilarating performance, and will comfortably accommodate up to eight people.
Trimming it different sails and change it height distribution help us to sail with almost any winds and waves conditions. This allow us to sail using only the SAILS most of the time (and avoid using the outboard).
It electronic equipment include: a 8 people LIFERAFT, VHF, GPS (global satellite position), sonar, mp3 music player, 4 stroke engine (6hp) and it sails include a: GENOA 1 (mylar), MAIN sail (kevlar full batten), GENOA 1 (dacron), MAIN sail (dacron), JIB (dacron), SPINAKER.
Sailing fast with the sailboat: from inside and from the coast
(We can also make a relaxing sail)
