Discoball was built as our step up from the Admirals Cup. Matched with an Angell mast and Rowsell sails (and a large amount of correctors...) she was quick out of the box and allowed Sam and I, as a very light crew to stay on the pace in a lot more breeze than had been possible before.

I don't think we ever reached the real potential of the boat due to very limited time to practice - but despite only 1 afternoon sailing between the 05 and 06 Burton Weeks we still managed to place in the top ten which probably says a lot for the designs innate speed and ease of handling.
