Enjoying a background that involves multiple watercraft, including an Optimist, windsurfer and 470, plumped out by a huge amount of cruising around the Balearics where he was born and still lives today, José Linares discovered the Mini 6.50 alongside Hugo Ramon, his sailing instructor. The latter ended up sailing double-handed with him in the Mini Med first of all, followed by the Triangle du Soleil in 2004.
At that point, a little seed was sown in the Spaniard’s mind, but it was put to one side so he could focus on his career as a structural engineer in Palma de Mallorca, before he later purchased a Lombard design Argo 6.50. “In 2015, I contacted my friend Nacho Postigo after he completed his Mini Transat, to ask him whether his boat was for sale by any chance. He immediately replied: “she’s yours!” That’s how the adventure really got up and running”, explains the skipper of Vamos Vamos, who is setting sail with just one motto: make the most of it!
