2000 Corby 38 IRC/ORC Racer

2000 Corby 38 IRC/ORC Racer

The one-off Corby 38 has enjoyed a highly successful racing career in both IRC and ORC, fully crewed as well as doublehanded.   She was reoptimized with a new keel and reshaped aft hull in 2008, and underwent a comprehensive refit in 2014.  She was further extensively upgraded and optimized in 2017-2018 for shorthanded racing,  including a complete new B&G H5000 suite and under deck autopilot drive, new sails, upgraded and relocated batteries, and modified deck gear and layout.  Additionally, the hull was patched and polished, followed by a high quality vinyl wrap (3M Cosmic Blue).

 

 

Campaigned on the Dutch and RORC Doublehanded circuits since 2018 she has  continued the winning tradition, finishing the 2018 season third in the Dutch Doublehanded Series, and 5th in RORC IRC 1 -- competing against fully crewed IRC 1 teams.  Along with other podiums, Double Edge took 2nd place IRC 1 in the 2018 RORC North Sea Race, 1st IRC 1 in the 2019 RORC East Coast Race, and 1st Doublehanded in the 2019-2020 Ijspegel Trophy Offshore Winter Series.

Shape tweaked in 2008 by Corby Yachts plus new keel. ORC & IRC success under German ownership including Middle Sea Race.

Originally commissioned for Colm Barrington as Gloves Off, it is one of few yachts to achieve the ‘trifecta’ of overall class wins at Cowes Week, Cork Week, Scottish Week.
Following the 2014 refit,  Rockall IV added a class win at Kiel Week, before winning their IRC and ORC classes in the 2015 Rolex Middle Sea Race.

Late 2017 bought by current owner who races mainly 2-handed offshore.
