Winter has certainly arrived in Sweden!
Find out how François is protecting Cybele 17's bimini top from the record amounts of snow that have fallen in Sweden since November.
- CYBELE 17 RESISTS THE SNOW -Unprecedented levels of snowfall have been recorded in Sweden since November (breaking the 1905 record):
François had to shovel snow from Cybele 17 in the midst of a blizzard.
Snowfall can weigh heavily on bimini tops, especially when the lower layers of snow are quickly transformed into ice.
With heat radiating from beneath the Rear Enclosure (RE), this ice adds considerable weight.
The only solution is to build a structure above the bimini top to protect our passenger compartment (RE).
This winter is expected to be particularly harsh with regular snowfall. It is therefore important to consider the weight of snow, which can quickly become a problem on-board.
Thanks to Cybele 17 for its service.
