Designed by Robert Hick and built by her original owners under his supervision, Hickup is a no-nonsense fast sports day racer. Launched around 2005, she features strip cedar and E-glass sandwich construction for light weight and strength. She is fitted with a fixed, but removable for transport, fin keel with lead bulb providing plenty of stability and has a sporty fractional rig on a carbon spar. Her retractable carbon bowsprit can be canted either side to allow her to run deep under her large asymmetric spinnakers. She is tiller steered with a deep carbon rudder blade on a carbon stock and she has a spare rudder too.
An ideal low cost fun boat for some young guns to race hard, she would be a great choice for Port Phillip, Sydney Harbour or Lake MacQuarie.
