Atlantic Diva

Ya he contado ampliamente que en el Atlantic Diva pasé uno de los mejores veranos de mi vida. Hace unos 15 días, he vuelto al virtual atlanticdiva2 que me sirvió para entrenarme para la virtual Barcelona World Race.

Pues bien, después de cruzar el Estrecho de Gibraltar, y dado que la regata virtual organizada con unos amigos navegantes lo hago con el atlantic_hero_2, he decidido volver a dejar al atlanticdiva2 en el mismo puerto en donde lo dejé en aquel verano del 93: Dún Laoghaire [ googleearth: 53º18'N + 6º8'W ]. Por lo pronto he hecho una paradita de reposo en Gijón :-)


Mientras hacía el recorrido se me ocurrió buscar al atlanticdiva2 en google y ahí estaba: en venta... por unos 30.000 euros. Si pudiese me lo compraría... pero eso daría para otra entrada :-)

Por lo menos me ha valido para tener fotos frescas mi Atlantic Diva.

Aprovecho también la ocasión para apuntar sus características. Ahí van.
