Esse 750 St. Moritz Cup 2016 – Report

From 22nd – 24th of July 2016 the Esse 750 International Class held its second official class regatta of the season in pretty (famous) St. Moritz. Unlike last year, the 8 teams from Switzerland, Denmark and the USA were faced with somewhat cloudy weather as well as little wind on the first two days of the event. In return, these circumstances made more time to enjoy social life in the midst of the breath-taking scenery. Nevertheless, the regatta eventually also found a happy ending on the water.

Pure Materials

The Esse 750 is a carbon boat. Its hull and deck consist of a vacuum assisted infusion carbon composite sandwich construction. Rudder, mast and boom also consist of carbon. As for the construction of the Esse 850 and Esse 990, Josef Schuchter put his trust in the Italian designer Umberto Felci for the development of the Esse 750. This resulted in a successful continuation of the Esseboats design concept.

Pure Sailing

The Esse 750 is conceived as a two-man racer. The modern sail plan includes a self-tacking jib and jib-furler, a square top mainsail and gennaker. The gennaker is set through a launching tube. Neither backstay nor runners are needed and the gennaker can be dropped using a dropline. Thanks to its construction, the technical configuration and the optimal handling characteristics, the boat therefore also guarantees a great sailing experience as a single hander.
