“I am the second owner and having imported her from Cape Town, South Africa in 2018, I have the necessary CE Certification and VAT paperwork. We competed in and came second in the Aegean Rally during July 2018 and came 37th in the Rolex Middle Sea Race in October 2018. I have not had time to enter any other races and have now decided that I wish to do more single-handed racing and which is why I am looking for a different boat.”
