F18 Worlds: Mischa Heemskerk will sail the Scorpion/F18 Open Project
Just a teaser report as Jasper couldn´t get shots of Mischa sailing today. -- After years of work and thanks to Ralph Moolenaar, Ronan Currid, Francesco Moretei, Sanyi Roka and Andrew Gallagher that got involved in the F18 Open Project when I launched the idea in Apr 2012, plus the latest Cad 'sanding' work by Marc Menec and the key drive, hard work , knowhow and full construction investment made by Jakub Kopylowicz , this great project has become a reality.
Extremely proud of what we've achieved, and reading back the first post we can say goals are fulfilled by far offering a cost effective F18 platform build by a renown yard like Exploder. Hull plans will be release soon,
Check that first post and the comments I made on who would built it back then! (Apr 12).
Having Mischa Heemskerk sailing at Kiel 2015 Worlds is like too much ...! for an incredible first stage project closure.
A new F18 is born, and the info I got it is not the only new ´baby´ Mischa will get.
