“Querida” has been optimised for light winds; it has a high transom and the appendages have been carefully designed, in compliance with IMS regulations. The keel stands out for its large surface area and its volume has also been “inflated”. For the rudder, not wishing to use the penalised carbon, the choice has fallen on a shaft in bonded aluminium foils. This weld-free technology can use aluminium with high magnesium content and therefore, more rigid and competitive than “traditional” exotic fibres. The deck features a lack of stern peaks, which improves the longitudinal strength of the overall construction as well as offering more room below. The compartment needed to store gear has been fitted in the centre of the cockpit bottom.
