Races and Regattas

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. Eve has performed well in the Sydney to Hobart yacht race and has achieved podium position in regattas such as Hamilton Race week.
