Hyde Sails helps improve performance of B45 at RTIR 2017

Monday, July 10, 2017


It was a brilliant weekend for the Buckley Yacht Designed/CML built B45 "Kia Kaha" as she won line honours in IRC 1 Division, 5th place on corrected and 17th overall in the Round the Island Race 2017.

This years annual refit included new Hyde Sails GPL carbon fiber sail package, Nautix A4 T-speed race antifoul system, upgraded carbon/stainless steel steering system, decks re-painted, re-varnish on the hull and a touch of teak in the cockpit...

“The new GPL Carbon sails from Hyde definitely gave us an edge, particularly on the start line” says Warwick Buckley owner of Kia Kaha, he continues “the crew also benefit ted from the sails being much lighter which meant we were quicker through the sail changes”.
