Simple


The new Bakewell-White 11m ‘twilight racer. Tthe design brief was around a modern design incorporating retractable propeller with full carbon build that could sail in the restricted depth of the Swan River in Perth, Western Australia.  It had to deliver performance for racing, and be easy to ‘beer can race’ and accommodate lots of friends (hence the removable cockpit esky’s!) The result is a very fast, simple, easy to sail boat proportionate to the 2.7m depth restrictions of the Swan. Designed by Brett Bakewell-White, built by Davie Norris Boatbuilders, Rig by NZ Rigging, sails by Quantum, deck package by Lewmar and instruments by Nexus.  Project was managed by Rodney Keenan.
