Didi 38 light ship weight

The Didi 38 has a dry weight of some four tons, two of which are in the keel, the boat is fast in all conditions and especially in light winds and off the wind.

Here the fine bow can be seen, spring low tides have the boat sitting on her keel, Black Cat is now starting her third Cape to Rio race and the race starts today!

With an SA/D sail area to displacement of 23.8 its easy to see that this boat will power up easily.

Bon Voyage to the crew of five which should work well, two resting or sleeping and three working the boat?
