A 35 square meter fore-sail for the venerable Contessa 32 “Samurai”. Contessa’s are super-long lasting yachts that create a curiously strong attachment with their owners. “Samurai” went through a thrilling, if you are into knowing the exact temperature for curing resin, refit over three years in northern Greece before providing a years’ worth of comfortable leisure cruising to its happy new owners. Upon reaching Corfu the old sails were turned into what you have in your hands.
