First off props to the girl for winning Line Honours in the RORC Carrabiean 600.

/monthly_02_2012/post-16269-092335600%201329933973_thumb.jpg

Was looking at her IRC rating (1.974) and it caught my attention that may be the highest IRC TCF I have ever seen.

Does Hetairos have the highest assigned IRC Rating?

Can a Yacht/Racing boat be assigned a rating of 2.000 or higher?

Speedboat 1.960 (Orginal, July 4th '08)

Wild Oats XI 1.954 (Sydney Hobart '11)

Investec Loyal 1.911 (Sydney Hobart '11)

Esimit Europa II 1.902 (Middle Sea '11)

Rambler 100 1.877 (Fastnet '11)

Wild Thing 1.805 (Sydney Hobart '11)

great story

what amount of 'hull factor' ( or other) could IRC account for to rate a boat twice as long down toward a boat half its length,

displacement i'm guessing

note this time is substantially slower than Rambler and Genuine risks previous effort

I thought full pelt was close to a rating of 2? Like very close?

There was another boat around at the same time, really narrow blue hull with insanely wide wings, anyone remember what she was called? I know there's videos of her on youtube....

Got some results in the Bol d'Or - amongst the top three monohulls over the line a few times (06? 07?). Not sure if she's ever been first monohull to finish.

AIUI, now sold to the lakes. Trapped up.

Does anybody know what, (if there is any) IRC Rating for the square rigger MALTESE FALCON.

I bet that would be one of the highest ever.

I don't know, but I doubt it.

She isn't exactly designed for out and out speed, like most of the other boats on that list, and to be completely honest I've never liked how those rigs looked in terms of efficiency.

But it remains to be one of the most ridiculous shows of wealth I've ever had the misfortune to lay eyes on....

You may be correct as far as the hull factor is concerned, but god knows how IRC handles so many acres of cloth.

Probably double the area of boats mentioned so far.

Good thing Hetairos was built to counter the ugliness of MF, such a beautiful boat, and very impressive on the racecourse. I'd love to see some interior pics.

You obviously haven't been around many large yachts then. In that league. MF would probably be deemed "understated".

Just checked last years Transatlantic race website and they did not have a TCC for her, pretty odd to me.

Hetairos was the first boat to rate 2.000 or over in IRC in 2011; the rule changes for 2012 dropped her rating below 2.000.

There is a wee bit more to the IRC maths than Hull Factor ;)

Maltese Falcon cannot get an IRC rating due to her rigsail configuration.

The total actual area isn't listed, but from IJPE's, 1281 square meters (13,800 ft2) total not counting the mizzen staysail, which if used would add another 225 m2.

Superyachts are no strangers to IRC, and there has been a fair bit of development in the 2012 program specifically relating to superyachts.

20 boats over 100' have been rated this year so far.
