TARKA Sailing Expeditions
Cape Horn Patagonia Antarctica
The "LEVRIER 18", with a 23 meters high mast and
220 square meters sails on reaching, with a displacement of 19 tons, is
a very fast sailing yacht, especially down wind.
Performances are upgraded when using the water ballasts (1 ,5 ton of
sea water on each
side), allowing to lower the angle of heel or allowing to keep more
sails when the wind is coming up.
