Ojalà II

Ojalà II, TAG Heuer VelaFestival, Livorno
When asked by his friends if he was going to fulfill his dream of owning a sailboat, Charles Holland always answered ‘hopefully’. These friends were Argentinian so that came out as ‘ojalà’. The dream was fulfilled and the actual “Ojalà II” is the second boat bearing this name. She was built in 1973 at the Royal Huisman shipyard in Vollenhove, Netherlands, on a design by Sparkman & Stephens.

A man who did not give up hoping (and working). Good for him.

Nice boat but too small for me. I'm afraid of water and a bigger one would give more confidence:)

It's 'oxalá' in portuguese (I wish that...)
