A Rebellion In The Making?!

This will be the first really high performance IRC racing boat to enter the UK for some years and it will be interesting to see how the boat performs against the existing fleet and how the market reacts.

There appears to be increasing pressure on the IRC rating office to penalise-less, these fast, lightweight, race boats and hopefully, RORC’s recent announcement of a high performance class in this year’s Vice Admiral’s Cup, will encourage more buyers to step off their traditional slow boats into these exciting planing boats.

The highlights of the sailing programme include: the Warsash Big Boat Series, Vice Admiral’s Cup, IRC Nationals, Round the Island Race, RORC Channel Races, Cowes Week and the 90th edition of the Rolex Fastnet.

Demand for this size of performance race boat is proving strong and Premier Composite Technologies has already started hull 3, scheduled to complete mid-summer 2015.
