The PCT built Carkeek 40 MKII, ‘Rebellion,’ has arrived in the UK. This is one of the first really high performance IRC racing boats to enter the UK for some years. With fast lightweight boats now starting to rate better under IRC and RORC’s announcement of a high performance class in this year’s Vice Admiral’s Cup, we look forward to seeing more fast planing boats like the C40 appearing on UK waters soon.
Demand for this size of performance race boat is strong and PCT expects to complete the build of hull #3 by mid-summer 2015.
‘Rebellion’ is due to compete at the Warsash Big Boat Series, Vice Admiral’s Cup, IRC Nationals, Round the Island Race, RORC Channel Races, Cowes Week and the Rolex Fastnet.
