NEVER ALONE is a good and fast yacht, which scored 5th in its group race division during ARC 2014 (10th overall), on which I’ve spent my last 2 years improving safety and sturdiness for a safe Atlantic Crossing. With the help of Mr. Francesco Pelizza from AMS (Ancona ITALY), we have completely re-projected the keel and the inner keel structure, with a huge investment of time and money (the modification is available in a full set of documents). We have also improved the mast, with a two fixed point for a spinnaker pole, and with a fore staysail. Alessandro Mosconi, famous navigator winner of Sidney Hobart in the nineties, helped me to re-arrange the layout in the cockpit. We added 2 Cunninghams for the main sail reefs, to be faster in case of strong wind. It was an amazing experience – transforming a standard yacht into a fast ocean vessel.
