    Reo 7.2- Prototype and Reo7.7 Hull1 got 2nd and 3rd respecively in Australian Sportboat Nationals hosted by Royal Motor Yacht Club Toronto. the results are here photocredit: Sportsailingphotography
  3. We had hull1 rated for IRC in Istanbul Turkey for IRC and raced a few races. It was with pin head main. we had 1,0721 in 2012. It was rated as is. I would imagine it is now a little better because of age credit (with pin head main). It was just a little slower than F30 at that time. The boat is very powerful down the breeze. In a geographic course in correct conditions you can win. W/L it depends really in the fleet you are racing against. Lining up with bigger 35 foooter boats with big masts, you are loosing at start and can not cover later. Yes it is fun. 8-10 knots the boat becomes lively. next year we will have hull12 rated for IRC and hope to do a few races with squaretop main.
  4. you can not sail with keel up.. But you can motor slowly to deeper water and lower the keel. If you have further questions please DM. thanks
