Isabella racing on Sydney harbour. We raced her every weekend from her launch through until the season ended in March. The winter series started in June but has been interrupted by lack of wind and now Covid.
Isabella has performed beautifully since launch. The electric drive system is a delight and Isabella has had great results racing against other Folkboats and in handicap events.
Isabella was featured in the Wordwide Classic Boat Show earlier this year and has recently appeared in the “Launchings” pages of Woodenboat magazine.
