I am reasonably certain that this ad is just plain Hyperbole in that it is my understanding that there was not a boat that came out of the race unscathed. I saw Tenacious after the 79 Fastnet and although she had won the race and had missed the worst of the storm she was a mess.

I don''t have access to my copy of "Fastnet- Force 10" but you should be able to get a copy. I would look in there. I am really skeptical that the statement that "Three 345s came through unscathed" but I can''t say for certain how much trouble they got into. I can say that in my experience with Nicholson tonners these are certainly not my idea of a boat with "excellent sea-keeping abilities".
They are fine for coastal work and the fractional rig is a very convenient rig to sail short handed.

Good Luck
Jeff: Now that a few years have passed, do you still hold the same view. Looking at the ratings the 9.2 comapres favorably with racer/crusiers.. The J30 and some others are in a different league. Am I missing something here. Thanks. M.
