Amfibie-Bris 1985-89

Amfibie-Bris 1985-1989, 4.8 meter 15’ 8’’ Beam 1.6 meter. IN 1989 I SAILED  BRIS FROM FRANCE TO NEWFOUNDLAND

In 1989 I and a young girl sailed my homebuildt boat from France to Newfoundland via Ireland. I had buildt her of two inch thick Divinycell and NM-Epoxi so she was very strong well insulated insubmergible and snug. It was an experimental boat with a bow centerboard and a ten feet short mast onto wich I could atach a varity of different rigs.

Here she is sailing rigged as a Bermudan sloop in strong winds.


Here as the wind has moderated I have put up an spritsail, increasing her sail area and making her more weatherly.
In light wind I put up an topsail.
In no wind I scull her. She is very versatile.
