BISCAY 36

 

The Biscay 36 is the perfect boat for a race such as this. It is a proven, strong and highly seaworthy design built in the UK in 1984. Built in a heavy fibreglass construction, it will be more than capable of surviving the worst of what the Southern Ocean can throw up.

It is the maximum permitted length and as such has good speed potential. It is a ketch (2 masts) allowing for more sail options to keep the boat going in all conditions. It is also easier to handle solo.
