XO-Racer

XO-Racer... A performing Sailer!
Since 2012 she has been the winner of the "Barcolana"
in Trieste every year, with an outstanding performance in 2015

The program XO-RACER, for whom?

Regatta and speed addicted ready for mono hull surfing. Sailing close to the nature you’ll feel her living like a 5o5 but without any risk of  capsizing. A XO-Racer Class is on its way and competition will start in 2017.

Modern and stripped design, tight lines, low freeboard, she has the “XO look”. The sharp bow and straight fore waterline cut the choppy waves ,, the beamy aft flat lines give a great stability and ability to surf .

Its central piano at the mast foot allows for quick and effective adjustments.

Thanks to her lead bulb below  a  2m carbon fin  keel , the  XO-Racer is stiff  and powerful in the strong winds (without need of trapezoids) and she’ll sail  like a rodket n light airs with her Code0 sail, head and bowsprit  tacked..

Its construction in glass epoxy under infusion gives her a featherweight, which contributes to her performance. The cockpit is designed to allow navigation for three people.

The Material

Construction in glass / epoxy under infusion in combining stiffness and lightness.
The spars are designed and sized for the regatta with mast and boom both in carbon.

Drawings

The design of Paolo Bua, based in Sardinia, benefits from previous successful yachts such as XO-Classic, Leggero L8, StarTruc or Rosso 28. With that famous » Italian “touch”.
Two versions are available : bulb keel liftable for trailering only, Naca keel fully liftable in its keel box when sailing, for beaching.

Performance

Upwind and downwind, light wind and breeze… Fine steering is fun. With a ratio ballast /displacement of 40% the XO Racer is very powerfull but secure and very stiff .. A rather small wetted surface contributes to the performance by light winds. The flat aft hull shape brings surfing very early, and her straight fore tight lines lines gives her beautiful performance upwind.
She demonstrated her ability by dominating her rivals in the big race of the Barcolana in Trieste particularly in 2015 .
