“The decision was made last year during the Worlds in Porto Santo Stefano, Mark (Holowesko) and I are ordering a new 5.5m and it’s going to be a Seb Schmidt design and a Wilke built” explains Peter Vlasov.
From that moment forward, the project fell in place with the precision of a Swiss watch.
The construction started in Fall and the boat was delivered just in time to hit the road to Italy for the 2015 Alpen Cup.
BAH 21 was christened on April 21 in Torbole, Lago di Garda and named “New Moon”.
The design is similar to SUI 226 with slightly different bow and stern. The very specific color shade of the hull is Stars & Stripes blue, the cockpit is Chevy white. Sails are by North Sails.
BAH 21 first rendezvous with her competition is tomorrow morning Torbole!
