Black Sheep is a 2008 Beneteau First 45 exclusively for sale with YOTI and lying in Sydney Harbour.

Black Sheep is a great example of a very well-prepared race version of the Beneteau First 45. If you can think of an upgrade, then it's probably been done. Built in 2008 and race prepared for IRC, she has had full IRC race fairing, preparation and optimisation.

On her first outing, she won the IRC Race division Hamilton Island Race Week, beating the fleet of highly competitive IRC yachts and proving the IRC pedigree of this yacht. Her upgraded alloy race rig, triple spreader with rod rigging and PBO back stay has been maintained and checked from new by Sydney Rigging Specialists. Of late she has been fitted with a composite prodder for easy downwind sailing and fast simple reaching under her Code 0.

Black Sheep has been constantly optimised for the IRC rule and successfully sailed to this rating in many of the longer Bluewater CYCA races. She represents the perfect opportunity to purchase a highly competitive, safe and capable racer cruiser with the ability to win trophies under the IRC rule.

Some of her more notable results are as follows -
o 2017 Sydney to Southport Race - IRC 5th Overall/ IRC 3rd Div 3
o 2016 Sydney to Hobart - IRC 2nd Div 3/ ORCi 2nd Div 3
o 2015 Sydney to Hobart - IRC 3rd Div 3/ ORCi 2nd Div 3
o 2015 Sydney to Southport Race - IRC 5th Overall/ 1st Div 2
o 2014 Sydney to Southport Race - IRC 3rd Div 3/ ORCi 3rd Div 2
o 2016 CYCA Blue Water Point score - IRC 5th Overall/ 2nd Div 2/ ORCi 2nd Div 2
