'Ibis' is a 1970 built Albin Marine "VEGA 27". As Vega typical, no Osmosis. 'Ibis' has been until 2018 at the lake of Neuchatel in Switzerland and then came to the North Atlantic. She is in Northern Portugal now.

'Ibis' has a reinforced mast stand and her rigging has been checked in 2015. Equipped with a mainsail, storm main, jib, storm Jib, light genoa and a heavy genoa. The light Genoa needs some stitching (3 patches), all others are in very good shape.
