New site and forum!
Written by Federico   
It was four years ago when, almost as a joke, I decided to undertake this adventure in the Internet by publishing a small page with some pictures of my Luna Rossa model. Since that time the small page has grown, even though not as much as I would have desired, and www.VelaRC.it was born. Then it came the Forum that by now hosts more than 250 users  and more than 2000 posts and counting… Therefore I decided that the time for a new step ahead was come.  So here it is this new version of both site and forum; more modern, more flexible, safer and overall better suited to interact with You visitors/modelers! I will try to add new contents on a regular basis, of course as much as my job and family duties allow. Therefore be patient if you will encounter some "in construction" pages here and there and maybe help me to make it all more interesting by letting me know what you think and contributing with pictures and articles!

Please excuse if my english translation is not that good and, please, don't be afraid of writing me if you find errors of any kind! Of course, if you feel like helping me with the english translation, you're more than welcome!

Enjoy it!


Luna Rossa ITA-45
Written by Federico   
ita45_ico.jpgI came up with the idea of building a model of Luna Rossa in 1999 while the original was racing in Auckland. It was my first trial in rc sailing: i had been sailing full scale and building rc airplanes so i decided to merge both things.

Dopo aver visto di cosa era capace la nuova classe di multiscafi Volvo Extreme 40 che ha accompagnato la Volvo Ocean Race nel suo giro del mondo, non ho resistito... Ho deciso che ne volevo uno anch'io (in scala ovviamente) e mi sono messo al lavoro...

Il Moro di Venezia V ITA-25
Written by Federico   
prog_moro_icon.gifThe new IACC class made its debut in 1992. Il Moro di Venezia was the italian boat used to compete in the Louis Vuitton Cup, the races to select the America's Cup challenger. Designers were facing for the first time the new rule; this made it necessary to build five versions of Il Moro to have a really competitive boat. Results came soon: Il Moro V won the Louis Vuitton Cup and raced the America's Cup where it was defeated 4-1 from Bill Koch's America3.
VOR 70 (Ericsson - Abn Amro)
Written by Francesco Bussi   
V70_ico.gifThis kind of boat appeared in the 2005-2006 Volvo round the World Race edition.
These boat differ from the previous 60 ft version not only for a greater lenght but also for innovative solutions like canting keel systems.
The models were designed by me, observing a great number of the real boat photos and some sketches of the design team.
In future the model, like the real one, will have a canting keel system and a asymmetrical Spi.
