Vis

VIS is a fast newly designed single-handed dinghy with gennaker.
VIS has been presented to ISAF in March 2000 at the ISAF Evaluation Event for a future Olympic single-hander. The boat has been designed considering the fundamental criteria set out by ISAF:

The hull is thin terminating to a very thin bow to have a correct balance between stability and resistance. Wings are rigid laminate (no tubes!) :

  1. to let sailor' s going in and out on the wire easier;
  2. for safe;
  3. to give a nice layout.

Wings can be moved inside/outside by means of rails giving equalization. Carbon mast ,being very stiff and light plus easy to be tuned,give more performances and is safer when capzised.

Technical data:

Overall Length 4.5 m
Max beam with wings extended 2.2 m
