After five years on the land, finally #SY Atalanta II is back in the water and of course goes straight strong!
At the debut regatta, the Volcano Race 2016 she was the absolute star of the 398-mile range from Gaeta to the Aeolian Islands and back. A challenge for the win in the mini maxi category below 80 feet, five crews with the boat of Carlo Puri Negri, who has managed to win first place on corrected time finishing the race in just over two days.
Armare Ropes, thanks to the collaboration with the rigger Elio Petracchi / Yachtperformance, has coordinated a major refitting of Atalanta II, in particular by designing and building three cables: a brand new PBO Forestay, a Structural Torsional Forestay in PBO and one Torsional Top Down to suit an A0 sail.
