A boat built for racing at a great price is surely the way to go for any aspiring sailors to start on the road. The 50's providing that proving ground and stepping stone into the 60's class. With Branec III in her most recent races having competed in the TJV 2001 and Route du rhum 2002. Or she could convert to a fast cruiser for the more relaxed racers who want to enjoy the thrills and spills of racing whilst being able to cruise at a good pace.
