Ocean Races

The S&S Swan 65 is a timeless racing yacht with an impressive pedigree. A sister ship won the first Whitbread round the world race (now known as the Volvo Ocean Race) in the 1970s. But despite her age, the Swan 65 is still competitive with an IRC rating of 1.1. She is equipped with a complete racing sail wardrobe and is certified for category 1 ocean races.
