Alfa Romeo II

Length: 29.87m  (97'11"ft) / Guests: 12 / Built: 2005


A major factor in deciding the sail inventory for the new boat has the CYCA's decision to drop the previous upper speed limit, a computer handicap figure, for the 2005 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race. Thus, the sails are bigger, the huge reaching spinnakers lighter - the biggest is 805 square metres. By comparison, the new 98-footer will carry 35 per cent more sail area than the 2002-built 'Alfa Romeo'. North Sails in Sydney have once designed all the 3DL working sails and spinnkers, the spinnakers cut in the Sydney loft, the working sails imported from the USA. For the 2005 Rolex Sydney Hobart, the new boat's working sails will comprise an offshore mainsail with headsails comprising a #1 light/medium, #1 heavy, #4 heavyweight jib, #5 heavyweight jib, jib topsail, genoa staysail and a drifter windseeker. The reaching and running sails will comprise a Code 0 and six asymmetric spinnakers - #1A (VMG), #2R (running), #3A (VMG), #4A (heavy running), #5A (heavy running) and #6A (very heavy running) plus the mandatory storm trysail and storm jib. The offshore main is 314 square metres, the #1 genoa 208 square metres and the biggest spinnaker is 805
