Further to the article in November the December issue of Classic Boat includes an endorsement of the Atalanta’s capabilities from James Wharram. (James started designing and circling the world with affordable and seaworthy catamarans in the nineteen fifties – see wharram.com).
Commenting on the November article he recalls meeting the crew of A113 Aku (the boat that set off around the world) in Las Palmas.
The letter includes a great picture of the skipper of Aku showing James how to use a crossbow for catching fish.
James is very complimentary about Uffa Fox and and the Atalanta.
