THE SAIL WITH MORE GLAMOR OF THE DITCH
For: Writing ASMODA
The Catalan designer Custo Dalmau and his mark Custo Barcelona, has been in charge of decorating the sails of the craft of Estrella Damm, who takes part in the Barcelona World Race. This ditch began last November 11 from the port of Barcelona and it will finish in February, after three months of turning to the world and covering 25.000 miles.
The illustration of the sails is a faithful reflex of the style of the designer, who has captured in them a happy floral pattern of red and yellow tones, corporate colors of the mark of beer that also are applied in the rest of the monohull. With this design, Custo Dalmau has wanted to reflect his passion for the nature and his commitment with the ecology. Certainly, it will not happen unnoticed. It is not the first time that the designer collaborates with the beer company: anniversary of Estrella Damm already created an original packing owing to 130.
The graceful and coloristic sails of Custo Barcelona, which they harmonize perfectly with the stars of the mark, will touch nine flying goals, step points obligatory, placed in waters of Gibraltar, Canaries, Brazil, South Africa, New Zealand, Chile and finally they will return to Barcelona. The adventure will extend throughout three months during which scales will not be done.
