IRC41 Karasu Launches in Japan

Our latest IRC 41 Karasu has just been launched in Japan and started test sailing.  Built by McConaghy’s in Zhuhai, this all-carbon racer is targeted at an inshore schedule in primarily light/medium conditions.  The optimisation for these conditions includes lighter displacement, large sail plan, and our innovative ramp deck allowing a lighter stiffer deck structure as well as improved crew ergonomics.  As usual the design was developed with involvement from Hall Spars NZ, North Sails, and a new deck gear package from Harken using 65’s for the driven primaries which will become the base spec for future Fast40+.
