This flush deck racer intended for competition under the IOR 1/4 ton rule is for sale in South Africa. Having won the 1985 1/4 ton World cup she has already shown her metal!
Due to the international revival of the 1/4 ton racing rule and with it a restriction on new boats being allowed to be built and raced in the class these older vessels are sought after. Thanks to this ruling, those amongst us with lesser budgets can compete head-on with those accustom to dominating the pointy end of he fleet.
She has been through a significant refit with little expense having been spared. Due to this a number of key components have been built from Carbon fibre. These include the rudder, tiller and bow sprit. Further to this the deck was rebuilt from PVC foam with E-glass reinforced with carbon.
The suite of sails is in good condition. This holds true as she has recently been extremely successful in her local club races.
