Re: Interesting Sailboats

The Contest 42 CS looked sharp in the breezy Ft. Lauderdale - Key West race
Took her a while to come thru the fleet in the light going during first half of race but with 25+ knts and 80-90 APW she got her sea legs running
World Premiere boat that was black/gray/gold in color
The black sails with gold design looked a bit odd when reefed and the jib half rolled up
Nice guys showing the boat off at the dock
Carbon rig
Even though last place in IRC and 6 hours behind the Cookson 50 and Carkeek 40 she arrived in style and a lot dryer with the large raised bridgework and a lot more protection behind the dual wheels
