Baraka GP – Ker 43 (formerly Otra Vez)
This custom, one-off was built to an exceptional standard by New Zealand’s most skilled boat builders.
She has a sweet spot both inshore and offshore in both the stronger breeze and in typical Solent sea-breeze conditions.
More recent weight reduction work has also kept her competitive in the lighter airs and conclusive victories in the FAST 40 class throughout 2016 prove that she is a serious IRC contender in any regatta fleet she enters.
