Ecoracer is Italian Sportboat Champion!

Ecoracer, the recyclable race boat prototype powered by OneSails 4T FORTE composite sails, opened the race season with a victory at the Italian Sportboat Championship. A winning both for the regatta and for the environment since the exclusive 4T FORTE developed by OneSails in 2013 are also the only recyclable sails on the market combining top performance with durability and sustainability. The Ecoracer is the fully recyclable sportboat made of sustainable materials. The valuable natural fibre reinforcements, sandwich cores and resin can be reused to produce new components. Compared to conventional glass fibres, flax fibres reduce the CO2 footprint of the composite from cradle to gate and don’t rely on fossil resources to produce the raw material. Instead, they sequester CO2 from the atmosphere during their growth and act as a natural CO2 sink during their entire lifetime. The designing team of Ecoracer consists of Matteo Polli, that took care of the water lines, Alessandro Pera and Mattia Sconocchia that dealt with the structures, Alessandro Stagni, engineer and Samuele Nicolettis, CEO of OneSails Nord Est Verona and Sail Designer. We are very proud and happy of the first victory and look forward to having more!
