Lynx, the successful Irish offshore Reflex 38 racer that has featured at the top of Ireland's offshore racing fleets for the past five seasons or more is seriously for sale by current owners, the Irish National Sailing School (INSS) in Dun Laoghaire.
Originally designed for Sir Robin Knox Johnston's infamous Clipper Ventures, Lynx, says INSS principal Kenneth Rumball, 'is the best Reflex out there'.
The yacht, under Galway colours, took a class win and fifth overall in Round Ireland 2012.
Over the winter of 2015/2016 she went through a 'no expense spared' refit for the Round Ireland campaign in 2016. Much work was done including a full IRC re-measurement and optimisation, major engine and sail drive overhaul, new sails, new upholstery, new sheets and halyards and the hull stripped back to the gelcoat, re-faired and treated to Nautix T4 hullspeed antifouling.
The refit was well worth it because the Christian Stimson design was tenth overall and top sailing school yacht in 2016's bumper Round Ireland fleet.
