...so how will 'Rogue Wave' perform?

The following daily sailing runs are from Marco Nannini's Blog (Blogstar) site updated during the 2009 OSTAR race. Should give you an idea of how we will travel if we sail as well as Marco! His average was 130.5M a day and only 2 days below 100M - not bad for a single hander in an old yacht. Should do Sydney to Hobart in about five (5) days in favourable winds and seas.

'Two True', a brand spanking new 2009 model Beneteau 40, was the Overall Tattersalls Cup S2H H/cap winner, was 41st across the line and winner of IRC Div 4!

To give you an idea of our performance potential, this years S2H race place getters that had hadicaps similiar to 'Rogue Wave' finished 7th, 14th, 19th and 25th out of 77 IRC yachts!

In IRC Div 4 where we would race the placings were 3rd (three hours behind 'Two True' on corrected time) 4th, 7th and 8th and finished between 5.6-5.9 days with an average speed between 5-6 knots!
