The World Champion’s Boat

What boat did Henrique Haddad (aka “Gigante”) and Gustavo Nascimento use to become 2019 Snipe World Champions in Ilhabela?

The boat is a Lemao, built in 2001 in Brazil by Kurt Diemer (BRA 29950).

The boat is very simple (to avoid any complications and just sail!): one block for the jib sheet (no barber or floating lead); one cleat (for either jib or main), just in case. The Brazilians never cleat the sheets.
