Final notes: OPTIMUM 3 (ex - CHESSIE RACING) is perfect for serious handicap offshore or inshore racing in both ORCi & IRC.
Built in 2000, she is at the hands of her 2nd owner only, both of them dedicated international campaigners; she has always been dry-sailed and kept in immaculate condition.
From 2003, is lying in the dry and sunny Greece, competing successfully in the Med region.
OPTIMUM 3 is a powerful yet user friendly all round racing yacht that is providing the thrills and spills everyone in our sport is dreaming.
The boat and the Hall Spars rig are so strong that although we are a team of amateurs, we often get speeds of over 25 knots, with the highest being 31,7 kts during the all winning Rolex Middle Sea Race in 2004.
We also maintain her ourselves easily, since all systems are well thought and come from the best brands and of serious quality.
Pure fun, that we will certainly miss!" declares Nick Lazos, co-owner. (visit www.optimumsailing.gr for videos).
