Hot Cookie Wins Class One of the 2015 IRC Double Handed National Championship

37 boats took part in the IRC Double Handed National Championship for 2015. The event was held in the Solent on the south coast of the UK and organised by the Royal Southampton YC and the Royal Ocean Racing Club. It is the second time this championship has been run and the racing was held for three IRC classes.

Light winds on the Saturday meant the passage race could not take place but two races were completed when the wind filled in during the late afternoon.

In IRC One the Sunfast 3600 Hot Cookie won both races taking the win in this class. The boat was raced by Neil Martin and Phil Barnes who have been racing together for about ten years. After trying a few different types of boats for two handed events over the years they moved to the Sunfast 3600, which is well set up for two handed sailing.

Hot Cookie is powered by an inventory of North Sails optimised for two handed racing.
