Design #124 - 36'7" (11.2m) IOR Racing Sloop
From our 1982 catalogue
Design No. 124 was designed as a full blown IOR Race boat rating approximately 28.5 ft IOR, with emphasis on light weather performance and with careful consideration to proportions to ensure better performance downwind than current IOR boats, while at the same time maintaining upwind ability. The commission came from an owner who had enjoyed several seasons of racing a boat built to Design No. 54 with an enlarged rig, which gave his boat awesome downwind performance. His aim was to maintain this advantage as much as possible and still produce a good all round performer.
Farr has produced a boat with beam to length ratio and displacement lower, and sail area to displacement and sail area to wetted surface ratios higher, than currently present in IOR fleets. Farr made extensive use of Velocity Prediction computer programs
