CAPRICE had a smoothing and optimization of her underbody shape, to make her more competitive, projected by the technical office Acubens, of Íñigo Echenique, and carried out by Xaime Garcia.

ACACIA also had her underwater body faired and optimized, as well as the integration of the rudder and hull near the waterline, and the interface between the rudder and stern post. We also carried out a treatment to reduce the roughness of the hull and in the same way, to make her more competitive. The original rudder also was smoothed and modified.

Little by little, it seems that the 6mR fleet in Galicia is increasing and the community of 6mR already has 8 units, formed around the Royal Nautical Club of Sangenjo, and we hope that new Owners will be encouraged to join this circuit and we could reach in Galicia something similar to the fleets of 6mR existing in other countries.
