Nacra 20 Carbon – first glimpse!

Who doesn’t want one of these?!

We all want except they’re as rare as anything at the moment as the factory have received confirmed orders for 30 of the beasts! This is the only sailing N20C in existence at the present time, the rest are still bottles of resin and sheets of Carbon! But soon enough there will be 20 Carbons popping up all over Europe!

By all reports, the banana foils can be felt lifting the boat from the onset and no doubt will introduce new sailing techniques in the coming seasons as crews learn to maximise performance from lift generating foils.

Transoms photos reveal a remarkable likeness to the transoms of the Oracle/BMW Americas Cup trimaran – wonder if it has anything to do with having the same designers! The rest of the details we’ll just have to wait for but, she won’t be slow!

About prosailing

In Southeast Asia a long time and all the while, sailing cats. But the cat love-affair began when I finished building my first catamaran at age 15... "never again". After building 2 more Formula 16 cats in Malaysia it's really 'never again'. Now we have a large fleet of high-tech speed machines including the Nacra 20 Carbon. Then we decided to spread our wings a little more and imported the Corsair Dash 750. Now we are well on the way to establishing a Coastal One Design Dash Class. As a test bed, we had 4 Dashes take part in the Neptune Regatta and now the plans are rolling out.
