With twin wheels, large open cockpit, large bulb keel and a steady replacement programme for her wardrobe of sails “Palpatine” certainly flies. She carries both asymmetric and symmetric spinnakers and when the asymmetric prod is fitted she becomes 45’ LOA. She races in the UK in the summer, then crosses the Atlantic for the Caribbean race season, before again racing Trans Atlantic back to the UK.
All running rigging is high grade Dynema (2014/15). Standing rigging was all replaced in 2014.
