|This solidly-built Lexcen 35 is a competitive racer with cruising capabilities. Under current ownership, Hot August Night has benefited from many upgrades and improvements including new rigging and a new Fred Barret designed rudder in 2012.
She has demonstrated her offshore abilities by competing in Sydney to Hobart races & Melbourne to Hobart races (3rd IRC 2012), but she is equally competitive around the harbour with multiple pennant wins.
Currently in Cat 5 safety but has previously been in Cat 1.
