1983 3/4 Ton Cup World Championship, Trieste: ?e/30

Blue Moon was a major design by Scott Kaufman, built by Piro Onoranti and the San Vitale shipyard in Ravenna, for the 1983 IOR 3/4 Ton Cup World Championship in Trieste. At the top of the technology of the time. A milestone of the latest classic IOR design, a masterpiece of technique and construction craftsmanship. It is a unique specimen that deserves special attention, reserved for an elite of amateurs or collectors.
The construction is light, yet extremely rigid and strong: epoxi-glued mahogany with Kevlar and carbon reinforcements, for a boat with high weight stability, with 50% fin ballast (lead). Highly sailed and with an easy sail plan, she is rigged at the masthead with non-structural flyers (check stay). The mast is a Stearn with three very thin spreaders, rod rigging, Stearn hydraulics on BackStay, BabyStay and Vang.
He has been racing mainly in the Upper Adriatic for ca. 15 years, with excellent results. In those years there were two 3/4s to beat-Blue Moon and Serbidiola-who always alternated on the podium.
