An under-rated talent.
Justin first came to
prominence in the
racing world when he
teamed up with qualified engineer
(and not a bad sailor) Russell Coutts to
create the RC44 – as good an example
of ‘boat fits purpose’ as you will come
across. But Justin’s latest design, the
L-30 (pg46) really is something else.
Commissioned for Rodion Luka’s
Ukraine initiative, the L-30 will find a
far wider market as soon as word is out
Why they won
‘Brave, innovative but smart’ – Dmytro Kudryavtsev; ‘two great
boats, the RC44 and L30, no further comment needed’ – Hasso
Ambroselli; ‘The L30 (above) is a great contribution to sailing’ –
Alex Ivanov; ‘The L30 really is a very clever idea’ – Alex Dabrovski;
‘Boats like the L30 are the future’ – Yuri Vlasenko; ‘Andrej is such a
talented designer but he deserves wider attention’ – Torsti Pullola;
‘He has also had a strong influence in sailing in the Ukraine’ – Alex
Molatai; ‘He is unafraid to follow his instincts’ – Andrey Nazximko.
