In the summer of 2009 Corry Kamichi launched her JMO-60; it quickly became my all-time favorite Wildwind monohull. The JMO-60 was beautiful, blazingly fast, and chock-full of nice details and racing options.
Nonetheless, four years have gone by, and that’s a long time in SLSailing. This ocean racer was clearly due for a refit.
Corry Kamichi knew this too. As soon as she finished her Wildcat45 catamaran, Corry started a total rebuild of her old global JMO racer.
The pieces are now falling together, and the name of her new boat is the Wildwind Open 60. It’s in beta sea-trials now, and I don’t know when it will launch or the full package of features the boat will ultimately contain.
What I do know is the boat is fast, fun, and stable, and it’s dressed-out with every bell and whistle any die-hard, hi-tech sail-racer could want. 🙂
I’ll give you the full scoop when the boat’s officially released, but I just couldn’t resist posting a few pictures now, to show off what’s new from Wildwind!
