rc 40

Starting off life as an RC 44 on the first day of fleet racing at the RC44 Oman Cup, Ironbound’s stern was hit by Aqua’s bow at the first weather mark of the last race. When Ironbound was rounding the bottom gate, first a piece of the bottom of her scoop came off and then the entire scoop fell off. D’oh! Much thanks to Pierre Orphanidis.
