Class breaks are up.

Div 2 and 4 look very interesting with a lot of HP representing.

Does Pyewacket have a lock on the Brarndoor or does Lucky have a chance?

Will be a fun one to watch!
Lucky would need lighter to very light conditions to trouble Pyewacket. In the Fastnet Race 2019 Wizard a Turbo'd Volvo 70 finished around 4 hours ahead of Lucky from memory. Wind conditions/angle will play a big part 2 but over the distance of the race and with the usual conditions Pyewacket will be a way ahead of Lucky.

Wizard is a non turbo VO70

What do we count as a turbo VO70 these days? Wizard is certainly a well cared for, prepared, optimised VO70 both now and before when it was Giacomo with a relatively new rig seeing as it was dismasted during a Hobart?

Is there an ORR database like ORC or IRC? Or is this a pay to play thing? I assume pay to play as it’s run by US Ailing. Looking to run some numbers for the class breaks. 
 

Thx

Yes Wizard I believe has a Turbo'd rig and longer spirit along with some custom sails and they’re now using a whisker pole reaching with the J0, a concept they took from the VO65 apparently. And Pyewacket is a turbo-charged Juan Kouyoumdjian-designed Volvo 70.

Pyewacket have a longer keel with lighter bulb, 1 meter taller mast and a longer prod. I think Rambler 88 ended making similar changes to their boat with some big gains. Some might remember Wizard was leading the Transpacfic race against Scallywag 100 and it wasn't until the end in the lighter conditions that Scallywag overhauled them.

bigrpowr,

I'm not shore calling Scallywag a "turd 100" is a fair thing. The designer of the hull is a very good designer ex America's cup for 4 plus challengers  and was working with a tight ass owner and the new boat captain / new owners rep still hasn't spent the kind of money or changed the boat like they did on Black Jack 70 / Pyewacket. 

I still think that a new deeper keel and taller mast on Scallywag and a brains trust like Blackjack 100 and you would still have a great boat.

Andy Dovell did some great work for me and it turned to gold.! And one of the nicest guys if not the nicest you'll ever meet. Got to remember Scallywag was a re-cycle project started by Syd Fisher. It's always hard recycling rigs, decks or whatever they had to onto the Dovell Hull. I know Mark Richards was well aware of the boats potential because he knows Andy's work very well. If you were to run the Scallywag with the Wild Oats budget and perhaps some of the same input it could well be a different story. Pulpit is on the money too.

Well after they broke the rig it was replaced with a mast of the same size.

A Turbo VO70, in this case has a 3m taller mast, Longer sprit, Deeper and lighter keel, and powered winches.

That Wizard was a gen 1 mini maxi'ish type of boat. The RP65
