VIDEO – A sailboat with only one sail …

“Giornale Luce” of January 1935 From Stockholm …

For the lovers of life on the sea: here is a model of yacht built with a new system that aims to reduce the veiling to eliminate the risk and the difficulty of managing numerous sails, when the wind is raging. In this type of sailing rig with movable mast, there are no foresail or mizzen sails that make the maneuver dangerous and difficult, but only a double glider controlled by a crank that slides a rope around a pulley at the foot of the mast, easily adjusts the maneuver.

Stephen A. Kleckner

My name is Stephen Augustus Kleckner and I am a boy born in Riccione but raised in Genoa, Italy and around the world as a parcel. I traveled a lot when I was little so I immediately had a very different vision of the world from my schoolmates and friends. I love sailing and sailing, I have circumnavigated Italy 31 times by sailing and done more than 45,000 miles by boat. I love the sea: I can't do without it, I also like mountain walks. I am a very curious person and I like to understand how things work. I am passionate about physics, so much so that I enrolled in university and devour every documentation that passes under my hand. I am also a collector of stamps and LEGO. I have a vintage MINI Morris from 1964. I am a computer systems engineer and analyst. I was a founding member of RICCIONE TV, but unfortunately I made the wrong partners. I love Star Trek and I think we are on a franklin of matter shooting in a dark galaxy, so we should be much more united and law-abiding and respect each other as a species, instead of wars among ourselves. I don't like extremism and fake news.
