Rob van Vliet has launched his F-82R in Europe and writes:
I'm very happy to announce that I launched my F-82R named SlowMotion (#116) last September. After a period of 5 years I had my maiden trip in September 2008.
It was the first time I ever sailed a multihull, and what a great experience it was!! It was much better than I expected, by 12-17 kts wind we easily made 11 knots. She steers with two fingers and is very neutral, what surprised me most is that the boat points very high. The building plans are very good, it was a pleasure to work with.
