Launcing of a new website!

In response to a constant demand for information about Gepard trimarans, it was decided to set up a website dedicated to these wonderful boats. This site will hopefully be of value also for the current Gepard sailors. It will contain basic information about Gepard trimarans, as well as any exciting news that may appear. Initially, texts will be in English only, to attract the widest possible audience, but later on I may produce the pages in Swedish as well.
