Anthea requires a crew of 4-8 people to be competitive.

Crew’s Comments: you just have to point her at the objective and she will do the rest; she is an old lady who has seen it all, and won it all . . . if you appreciate this then she will put you on the podium of life’s great achievements.

Charter Yacht – Cape North 42

charter yacht Amihan

S/Y Amihan Cape North 42

Amihan requires a crew of 4-6 people to be competitive, more than 8 gets a bit crowded.

Crew’s Comments: she is a swift cruising yacht and surprisingly fast and dry on deck; in 2016, with her Japanese charter crew, she achieved podium finishes in two out of three races . . . not bad for a mature lady.

She will sleep 4 comfortably, up to 8 if you are friendly – master double, forepeak double, saloon 2 singles plus two pilot berths

Charter Yacht – Irwin Competition 37

charter yacht Sorcerer

S/Y Sorcerer Irwin Competition 37

See the original sales brochure (just tap/click)

Sorcerer requires a crew of 6-8 people to be competitive, 9 is considered the maximum for winning.

Crew’s Comments: she may not look much but she has it where it counts; she does not point quite as high as others, because her sails have a few more miles, but a little off the wind and she goes like a train. Easy podium finish if you know how to fly a spinnaker, first place if the breeze favors a blooper.

She will sleep up to 8 if you are friendly – forepeak double, starboard quarter double, saloon 2 singles plus two pilot berths

Charter Yacht – Sydney 36

charter yacht Sandoway

S/Y Sandoway Sydney 36 (BH36)

Sandoway was purchased as a Bashford & Howison BH36 around the time Sydney Yachts took over the production and marketing. She was once one of four yachts owned by a Philippine yacht racing consortium that, in 1999, invested in the BH36, plus a Sydney 46 and two X yachts, to compete in various wind conditions. She is now privately owned.

Sandoway requires a crew of 6-8 people to be competitive, 9 is a considered a maximum for racing (she can cruise with at least 14 plus two dogs).

Crew’s Comments: she can be fast but the crew have to be on their toes the whole way to adjust the rig for maximum performance; she will easily deliver a podium finish if the crew work for it.

She will sleep up to 6 if you are friendly – forepeak double, starboard quarter intimate double, saloon 2 single berths

Charter Yacht – Farr 1104

charter yacht Rags

S/Y Rags Farr 1104

Rags, a Farr 1104, was the design of Bruce Farr when he decided IOR was out of date and he instead designed and built a yacht that just went fast. The essence of the 1104 design has been the inspiration for all IRC racing yachts ever since.

Rags requires a crew of 6-8 people to be competitive, 9 is a maximum.

Crew’s Comments: given a bit of wind (which you usually get in Puerto Galera during the All Souls Regatta) she will overhaul the entire fleet for a podium finish.

She will sleep up to 6 if you are friendly – forepeak double, starboard quarter double, saloon 2 singles berths

Charter Yacht – Farallon / Golden Gate 30

charter yacht Guinevere II

S/Y Guinevere II Golden Gate 30

Guinevere II is a robust pocket cruiser designed by Chuck Burns and built in the U.S.A., originally designed for young couples who wanted to get into cruising on a budget. She is owned by the yacht club and used primarily for training students about keelboat sailing when they progress from dinghy sailing.

Guinevere II requires a crew of 3-5 people to be competitive, 7 is considered the maximum for winning.

Crew’s Comments: she is not the fastest yacht on the course but can stay ahead of the fleet if you treat her well; she romped home for a Cruising Class 1st during the All Souls Regatta 2016.

She will sleep a couple or 3 if you are friendly.
