PCP will become famous soon enough
What an wonderful new: Hatairos, the big classical flavored yacht took line honors on the Caribbean 600 beating all racing boats, including the big and powerful 90ft Rambler. The big cruising ketch, designed by Reichel / Pugh and Dykstra won by almost two hours.

Hatairos Navigator Marc Lagesse: "I must say I am very surprised that we were the first at the finish. On Line Honors, I would not have believed before the start, as the ship and sailing are not optimal for this course.."

Well, I cannot wait to be what the boat can do on an optimal course

They averaged 22k speed.

Isn't it a beauty, I mean a fast beauty:









On compensated won another beautiful one, this time a race one that normally beats bigger boats, and has won already many races, Ran the Judel/Vrolijk designed 72ft. Look at it, on another race:
