HOW TO BUILD A "BERNARDA 10-foot" IN YOUR LIVING ROOM
AT 400 m height and 30 km from the sea
an incomparable experience
After a pregnancy lasting from dec 2004 to june 2005 Bernarda's little brother was born:
BERNARDO 14 feet !!!
here's it , with provisional sails
and with the incredible final ones
Bernardo is a "Javelin" class
it's a 14 feet australian skiff .
Is should be rigged with a mast 5 feet taller than this one . And should have a 7 feet bowsprit and a huge jennaker ....
But I must sail it by myself alone and then I had to downsize everything
here's the only picture where the two little brothers are shown together:
Thank to all the guys who freely shared their knowledges and experiences .
And a very special thank to my splendid wife who allowed me to make havoc of our living room as can see in these pages.
