Hi Alasdair, We stand corrected. Looking at the book, Laurent Giles and His Designs by Adrian Lee and Ruby Philpott © 1991 by International Marine Publishing Co. We now see that we underreported the sail area for most Vertues. The “original” design, the ANDRILLOT, had a sail area of 366 sqft. That changes by hull #2. We have updated the record to report 395 sqft. We also added a record for the Vertue II, the GRP version of the VERTUE, still in production today by Bossoms Boat Yard in the UK.
Thanks for the “heads-up” on our error.
