Genuine Risk is back... The Dubois designed maxi (formally Ragamuffin 90) is in the water in Sydney, all systems tested and ready for her next owner to go racing!
This slender, high tech, canting keel monohull was originally launched in 2004 for US Yachtsman Randall Pittman, who raced her successfully all over the world.
In 2011 she was purchased by Syd Fischer, and he undertook a full refit and re-named the yacht Ragamuffin 90. Syd was active in the Asian region, competing in major long distance ocean races:
- 2013 Hong Kong to Vietnam -Line Honours and Race Records
- 2014 Rolex China Sea Race -Line Honours
- 2014 Okinawa to Tokai -Line Honours and Race Record
- 2015 Subic Bay to Boracay -Line Honours and Race Record
- 2016 Subic Bay to Boracay -Line Honours
She eventually returned to Australia and was stored in a Sydney Shipyard, where it was purchased by the current owner who has set to re-ignite her as a Line honours and IRC contender once more. Further history available upon request.
