Sydney Harbour is one of the best places in the world to go sailing, so why not build the perfect boat to race on Sydney Harbour....
That is exactly what the owner of the Red Hand did!
The popular Royal Prince Edward Yacht Club, Wednesday Afternoon race has been a feature of Sydney yachting for over 50 years. The Red Hand was built to participate in this popular passage race around the harbour, and win!

Large sail area including square top mainsail and overlapping headsails, all carbon fibre construction and latest sailing equipment and rigging provide ultimate performance and exhilarating sailing in all conditions.
