In Topic: what is it?

Couldn't agree more on a serious photo bank for all Newick's boats.

My idea with the pictures was to start a website someday with relevant info on the history of each boat.

Is the website of your "project Cheers" already in the air?

No, not sure if the bottom picture is Quicksilver, I've gathered thousands of pictures of the graceful Newick's over the years and wasn't very accurate documenting them in the beginning.

Quicksilver is mentioned in several articles in early NEMA newsletters http://www.nemasail.org/news.html#news

For the rest I know little about Quicksilver apart from that she was brought to france decades ago and still sails on the the Atlantic side. Last year she was put up for sale but not sure she was sold.

I fear this discussion may turn into one of those esoteric discussions about various guitar pick ups where the gear heads get all excited about details. Problem is that they can't play.


What about a detailed esoteric discussion between gear-heads who can play picking guitars.

No mention of Heerema who bought the Italian moustache boat? Is he number 26 or not planning on doing the Vendee?


All what is known is that CDK is currently completing a full build-optimisation and refit of the yacht.

The name of Heerema's sailing team "No Way Back" can be read through the plastic

Reassuring to see Russ and Rob are on speaking terms again and again and again.

Why not take the opportunity to make an appointment to go sailing together since you guys have proved for decades now you got so much in common.

What else than true love and passion would stand this particular way of communicating.

I'm sure it will pay of, Oh and please remember the more than steep learning curve to profit the worldwide proa community.


Have fun.
