Proven Race Winner, Topsides Recently Awlgripped, Large Sail Inventory
GAUCHO, designed by Bruce Farr, took the international yachting community by storm with a sweeping victory at Yachting's Key West Race Week in January, 1992, winning every race by huge margins on corrected time, and often beating all of the competitors in her class, boat for boat, except for one of two 50-footers. Following her stunning success at Key West, GAUCHO also won the Southern Ocean Racing Conference a month later, finishing first in all counted races.
CALIFA 3, a sistership, owned by Arturo Arrebillaga of Argentina, enjoyed similar success. She won a 700 nautical mile ocean race from Buenos Aires to Florianopolis, Brazil, and followed that victory by also winning all five races of the Santa Catarina Isle Ocean Circuit in Brazil.
At the inaugural Rolex Commodores' Cup in July, sailed from Cowes, Isle of Wight, these two yachts again drew considerable attention. CALIFA 3 finished as top individual yacht overall, and GAUCHO finished second overall, leading the US team to victory.
Earlier at the Corum Japan Cup in May, another Farr IMS 44, DREAMPIC, won the IMS division with a near perfect victory, placing first in all but one race.
TABASCO, owned by Tom Stark of New York, won the Around Long Island Race in July, 1992 shortly after being launched. Again, the victory achieved by this design drew substantial attention. TABASCO beat every boat in the fleet of 105 yachts around the course, boat for boat, except for one, the 83-foot Maxi CONGERE.
