The Archambault A35 “Astrapi” (Greek for Lightning) has been home to many a race win in the Athens offshore sail racing circuit. For over six years this spinnaker drove Astrapi to podium positions in the Greek Offshore Sailing National Championships, the season start and ending races from the Piraeus to the island of Hydra and out to the far reaches of the Cyclades islands. In short this sail has pushed Astrapi into some of the most ancient and most beautiful sea-lanes there are. The sail was rendered useless when Astrapi was dismasted in heavy weather while racing to Hydra. Made for wind this sail is now reborn and remade for your travels.
