Having sailed these boats for many years, they are hard to beat when it comes down to "Bang for Buck"........ in fact make that impossible to beat!

The minute you step on board, it feels like you are in "big boat" territory and with performance on tap and IRC and ORC success stories still going strong, i challenge you to find a boat that will fulfil more criteria at this price point!

6th In IRC 1A - Fastnet Race 2017
A fantastic result for the team, showing what these boats are capable of.
