    The boat can't help it, its built into its DNA (consider its previous life!!)

    IOR Lives!

    Hey, i remember the PNG Admirals Cup team at Berthons in 1983. I was an apprentice there, apart from Di Hard, the other memorable thing was their boat car that had loads of flattened beer tins rivetted to the body work.

    VOR 2017-18

    I thought that the Vestas was a new build. From the reports I saw, In the end they threw away the wreck as beyond repair and built a new boat? So not a Frankenboat.

    Estar, I'm afraid you are confusing them with Chay Blyth's Challenge yachts. There are 3 of the 67's down in Ushaia doing the Antarctic runs.
