Mast is ready.

As the weather in Turkey tends to improve a bit, I am again focused on splashing my boat for the first days of Spring.

The mast is finished and looks really beautiful. It was built by a friend of mine, Sacit, who has built some really nice looking masts here in Turkey. I am really grateful to him and believe my boat has never looked any better. On the left side of the picture you can actually see a Didi 26 Sacit also built. Its a really great boat and we race it here in Turkey during the sailing season.

Here are a few more detailled pictures of the mast……

….and the proud owner.

All I need to do now is add sails , some salt water and feel like a real sailor :)


  1. Looks clean, Jerome. As always!

    Discontinuous shrouds, I see some pulling the boat down to the dock in your future!

    ... and turn those jib cars around :)

    ... then go get the thing wet!!!!

  2. Looking good Jerome.

    Send me a bigger pic so I can put it on the class website front page. Always awesome to see another i550 come together.



    Burda yarışabileceğin rakiplerin...
    Here opponents for you to race..

  4. Magnifique Jerome, maintenant c'est un vrai bateau, il ne reste plus qu'a hisser les voiles et venir jusqu'à l'Estaque
