Pressmare published the first news of the new Scuderia 65 designed by Harry Miesbauer on the eve of her launch, in October 2019 in Fano, Italy. 

Last weekend saw the first outing of the new 65ft fully IRC optimised full carbon racer/cruiser which was launched last autumn. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the crew headed by OneSails CEO Dede De Luca had to wait quite a while before they could hoist the new 3rd generation OneSails 4T Forte racing sail set. 

The full set of sails was produced at the OneSails Nord Est loft in Verona/Italy where the sail design was done by Dede De Luca and Samuele Nicolettis in close collaboration with Harry Miesbauer to optimise the sail plan for long distance races under IRC. 

Although, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, valid time testing the sails and boat on the water has been lost, the sail designers at the OneSails Verona loft could spend a few weeks more on optimising sail shapes in “lock-down”. 

However, the first outing with the racing sails was very promising und showed that the boat has its potential as it was foreseen on paper. The boat had no technical issues at all. All systems worked very well, which means that the meticulous attention to details in the design and building period by the /h/arry miesbauer yacht design studio and the project manager Aldo Scuderi has paid off. It also shows that the yard, Adria Sail, and the suppliers like Cariboni and Harken have done an excellent job. 

Unfortunately some of the regattas where the boat had planned to participate this season e.g the Aegean 600 have been already cancelled. The owner and the crew is just hoping, that there will not be any other cancelations. 

Right now, the first regattas for the boat are the Barcolana and the Middle Sea Race in October
