This fast, offshore cruiser was built as a high;y competitive ocean racer, winning the 1979 Trans Atlantic Race and completing the storm raged Fastnet later that summer. Now fully equipped for ocean cruising with a jib and stay sail cutter rig, both on roller furlers, she has cruised  thousands of miles in comfort and safety. He racing heritage gives her great pointing ability and she is fast and stable under all points of sail. Her well appointed interior is comfortable both in port and at sea.

The interior is still like the enclosed drawing except the engine is now located under the aft companionway, the two berths opposite the galley have been converted to a settee and table and there is only one berth on the port side in the the  main salon. The aft cabin has a large quarter berth on either side with the Nav Station forward to starboard and the the head to port. Next forward through the port passageway is the main companion way with large sail/storage bins on either side. The galley is to starboard with an athwartships gimballed  propane stove and a large refrigerator/freezer on the center line. The main salon has upper land lower berths to starboard and a single berth to port. Built for offshore racing, the berths are deep and the U shaped galley make her terrific for offshore passage making, while her white walls and overhead, varnished teak lockers and ceiling slats along the hull and the teak and holly cabin sole make her interior warmer and more comfortable than one would expect in a race boat.

The deck also remains much the same as when she was  built except for the dodgers and solar panels that were added to improve cruising life. The big main hatch was originally designed as a secure place to tail the two main pedestal winches, but now affords great access and air to the cabin below. The custom hardware and winches date from 1975, but have been well maintained over the years and are in good working condition.
