Owner says to quit this eye-catching boat that's guaranteed to stand out. A lightweight, fast and easily sailed club racer with good results, it can be raced by 4 or more people or twilighted by only 2.

It is in very good condition and comes with a good sail wardrobe. Upwind, it is fast and stable. Downwind, it's thrilling, especially reaching or running and consistently beats larger boats around the course.

A very roomy cockpit also allows for special twilight evenings with friends and family.

Mast is tapered aluminium with triple spreaders. Boom is carbon. Prod is articulated, retactable carbon.

Sails include 2 reefable mains (Aramid, Dacron), 3 jibs (Aramid, Pentex, Dacron) 2 assy kites (nylon) and a Code 0 (Pentex). All are in very good condition and the racing main and jib are less than 6 months old.

Great Tacktick electronics package delivers compass, tacking angles, lifts and headers, timer, wind speed, wind angles, water depth and boat speed. Also has VHF radio, LED nav lights and 12v battery with solar/240v charger.

Extras include a 2000 model Mercury 5hp with minimal hours, full boat cover, automatic and manual PFDs, paddles, boathooks, anchor and warp.

It tows exceptionally well on a galvanised tandem trailer and can be launched by crane or ramp.

Excellent boat for club racing on the river and also trailing down to GBRW
