And that's empty weight. There is a lot more gear on Crux and the personal gear of Carlos & Peter is probably more than the total gear for the 6 crew on Azzurro (including any contraband smuggled past Shane)!from the ORC certs
Crux 5,206 kg
Azzurro 4,801 kg
And the carbon fiber: engine box, companion way stairs, rudder, tiller, toilet, coffee cup holders, etc. etc. Not to mention the total lack of furniture or anything non essential. There is not even any dust on board and since she is dry sailed, there is little moisture in any structure.I guess the deck also saves weight over the original
If they were to get knocked off by Ichi, tell them to put in a rule 69 protest for "piss gate"
= just about optimizedDislocated shoulder on a boat can't be much fun. Interesting that there have been a few retirements due to engine issues.

We broke the point where the forestay meets the deck so it took the jib tack with it. The whole kit flapping to leeward of the main. Boom got pretty low and the runners got loose but the rig stayed up. Ran forward to tie on a halyard and headed home.Plus jib luff tension……
