The Sun Fast 3600 design that has been sailed to offshore height's by Howth Yacht Club's Conor Fogerty has been named IRC Boat of the Year by the UNCL, “Union Nationale pour la Course au Large,” which assembles a jury composed of journalists from the marine press (Couse au Large, Voiles et Voiliers, Voile Magazine, Seahorse Magazine).

This distinction compliments a season already rich in first places and trophies.

In Ireland Fogerty, sailed BAM to success in RORC's offshore points series placing third overall in the IRC 3 Championship.

This year, in France, the Sun Fast 3600 has been distinguished by the SNIM, the Porquerolles Race Week, the Giraglia Rolex Cup, as well as the “Championnat Méditerranée Equipage” IRC-UNCL 2016 in IRC3. The Sun Fast 3600 has also dominated the podiums in the United Kingdom, in Italy and in New Zealand!

This honour, says Jeanneau, affirms thecollaborative work of the Jeanneau team and Andrieu Yacht Design, the designer of the boat. Developed for regattas, the Sun Fast 3600 has lived up to its reputation, proving over the years that its presence has become essential!
