    Who likes blog of Atlantic 57 here there is another one,
    aVida:

    aVida sailing blog

    I like this blog because the writer is very honest about their mistakes,
    they are not professional trained sailors and, naturally, it happends
    some troubles, and normaly this is hidden and covered.

    Thank you for posting the links to the blogs. Most informative about the Atlantic 57 design in the real world.

    On the alwoplast website some foto and a beautiful comment
    of the owner of Hekla:
    http://www.alwoplast.cl/interior.php...n=fondoA57.php

    On our second day out of Valdivia, we were close reaching in 25 to 30 knots of wind, well reefed down and still going fast, having a comfortable lunch inside while the watch captain stood dry in the pilot house with full visibility of the surroundings. There is just not much more we could ask of a cruising catamaran. We are living our dream thanks to Chris White and Alwoplast.

    p.s. and there are also the first photo of the A47 !!
