C100 Racer

The Carkeek 100 is a record breaker, designed to win under IRC either offshore over long distances or inshore around the buoys.

The Carkeek 100 is a record breaker, designed to win under IRC either offshore over long distances or inshore around the buoys. She has a lightweight structure, highly optimised with extensive FEA for maximum stiffness to weight ratio and a low VCG allowing target boatspeeds to be achieved from a proportionally smaller sailplan. This results in lighter sails, lighter loads, easier sail management, and a boat which is easily driven.

The Carkeek 100 incorporates the latest grand prix developments into her hullform design, capable of sustaining high average speeds even in light airs, but with enough stability to support her large power to weight ratio in heavier conditions. This in combination with a high ballast to displacement ratio, and high sail area to displacement ratio allow her to excel upwind in light and heavy airs.

The forms and balance characteristics were carefully designed with owner-drivers and pro helmsmen in mind using our in-house CFD and performance prediction and balance software. These tools were used to calculate optimum appendage configuration, size and position. The deck layout and design of the clean over-size cockpit are directly inspired by VOR and maxi grand prix layouts, centred around creating an ergonomic platform to allow fast but safe sailing, sail handling, and manoeuvring and includes the latest TP 52 and VOR detailing.

The yacht features the following:

– Light displacement, high performance hull form
– Optimised carbon pre-preg/Nomex/Kevlar honeycomb construction throughout
– High/Ultra-high modulus carbon rig
– IRC optimised and ability to mode for ww/lw and offshore racing
– Topmast carbon backstays and hydraulically actuated deflectors
– Twin carbon checkstays with hydraulically actuated deflectors
– Canting keel
– Powered systems and trim controls
