Big Comeback for Maxi Ragamuffin at Hamilton Island Race Week The 27 ton bullet-proof aluminium built Maxi Ragamuffin is making its raci= ng comeback at Audi Hamilton Island Race Week following a 21 year lull whe= n the old girl toiled as a charter workhorse.

Maxi Ragamuffin is a German Frers design built in Mona Vale in Sydney in 1= 979=2C the same year when racing as Bumblebee IV for John Kahlbetzer the b= oat took line honours in the Sydney to Hobart. Under Syd Fischer's charge= another two line honours triumphs would belong to the famous maxi and Rag= amuffin moniker=2C in 1988 and 1990.

The boat joined the 93-boat fleet at the inaugural Hamilton Island Race We= ek in 1984 and at least one part of the boat has been a permanent fixture= at the island since 2009. The 30m aluminium flagpole on the flagdeck at H= amilton Island Yacht Club used for starting and finishing races at Race We= ek is the mast off Bumblebee IV which was lost overboard in Sydney Harbour= then salvaged.

Ragamuffin's new owner Keith Batt has grand plans for the 80-footer he pur= chased less than a year ago starting with Race Week August 16 to 23=2C the= n the Rolex Sydney to Hobart race in December. -- Lisa Ratcliff

Ten years after the TP52s were first adopted into Europe the class remains= true to a box rule concept which has been well managed to racing remains= tight but there are still sufficient design opportunities to develop and= design performance differences.

The new 2015 generation boats will be faster still and more challenging to= sail. Sail area increases - mainsails=2C jibs and gennakers all get bigge= r - overall displacement reduces but draft and hence righting moment or po= wer increases - carbon rigging is adopted=2C bowsprits are longer=2C new g= eneration carbon rigs will be stiffer and deflectors are allowed and cockp= it volume is opened up.

The eight new boats include those for existing 52 SUPER SERIES teams=2C Qu= antum Racing (Doug DeVos USA)=2C Azzurra (Roemmers family ARG)=2C Sled (Ta= kashi Okura=2C USA/JPN)=2C Ran Racing (Niklas Zennstrom=2C SWE)=2C Provezz= a (Ergin Imre=2C TUR)=2C Gladiator (Tony Langley=2C GBR). Two teams are ch= oosing to remain anonymous but have boats already commissioned.

Interestingly the new boats which have been ordered are split 50:50=2C fou= r apiece between the two established design houses Botin Partners and Jude= l/Vrolijk.
