An attractive visitor

A40-01

This week there’s a very hot boat visiting at Grand Marina — an Archambault 40RC in a tricked-out paint job that appears to come from Nova Scotia.  On her own bottom?  The helm position on this IRC weapon looks pretty exposed for long-distance voyaging.  Hopefully, I’ll run into the owner or crew, and find out what the story is.  More pics after the break.

    That’s the A40 RC “Ciao!,” which was raced in Key West and Miami and a few other races in 2009 before heading over the West Coast. She is a sweet IRC racer, the bowsprit is removable for windward/leeward racing.

    Stop by the office just across from the boat Upstairs.
    UK-Halsey loft I show you the boat inside too.
