This is a multi-chine plywood entrant for the Mini-Transat race which takes competitors across the Atlantic to Antigua via the Canary Islands. It is known as one of yachting's most dangerous races and is fought by boats with a maximum length of 6.5m. We have been asked to draw up a design for a Canadian client which uses standard stitch and tape building methods with non exotic materials for amateur construction. She incorporates water ballast along with a lead ballasted bulb on a high aspect ratio keel, inclined twin rudders and built-buoyancy. Whilst designed for a specific race, she would provide fast exciting sailing in coastal waters (the keel can be raised for easy transport) and has room for more than the 2 berths shown.

LOD 21'4" (6.5m); Beam 9'10" (3m); Draft 6'4" (1.92m); Total loaded displ. 2814 lbs. (1276 kg); Total ballast 1574 lbs. (950 kg); Working Sail Area 458 sq.ft (42.6 sq.m.).

Plans for the hull/superstructure only are available.
