A tremendous combination of lively performance and easy steering, she tracks easily, holding a straight line, with no need for constant sail trimming. Her sail plan is easy to balance, making single-handed sailing possible. The geared steering provides just the right amount of feedback through the wheel without necessitating biceps of steel.

Visibility from the helm is excellent, whether standing, using the helm seat, or sitting on the comfortable coaming outboard. The choice of a simple sloop rig means that a crew of six can use a 1,400 square metre asymmetric spinnaker safely and enjoyably as it can be furled away in seconds. The square-top carbon mainsail is one of the largest in the world.
