BC2 was built by Jean LeCam in carbon for his own use at CDK in 1987 to a VPLP design. She is a landmark vessel not only for her many race wins under Le Cam and Desjoyeaux, but was the first tri expressly designed to sail on one hull. She was the prototype for the ORMA 60 andMOD 70 design trends. She has a single central daggerboard, twin rudders and two ama daggerfoils that feature variable angle of attack that is adjustable at speed. All blades have been glass bead blasted and re-faired. She is easy to transport being fully demountable and containerizable. The new aluminum road trailer, full cradle system, and a new 67' spreaderless wing with travel splice allow the entire package to be pulled by a pick-up truck. The new carbon spreaderless wing was engineered by Nigel Irens choice, John Levell.
Clocked back in the day at 38 knots the new rig and rigging are 450lbs. lighter! Standing rigging is all new Amsteel with custom teardrop ends.
Her new prepreg carbon boom has the hydraulic ram fully enclosed with new stations at each helm. The new carbon bowsprit is also prepreg with internal sheaves. All winches are Lewmar self-tailing, with Spinlock stoppers, Harken tracks and cars, and mainly Vectran and Spectra running rigging. Electronics include ICOM VHF and Garmin mapping GPS. Fixed and portable bilge pumps, anchor and rode.
Tillers are carbon composite with a new full width tiller bar. Sail inventory includes a very good Richard Bouzaid Doyle square head main with Taffeta with one season use and a self tacking blade and small Code Zero that are delivery sails. Canvaswork includes full knotless Spectra nets, behind beam fairings, and forward triangular nets and recent mainsail cover.
There are two separate mainhull scoops for either the recent 25 HP two stroke Mercury that is available or a new extended main hull scoop if you want to go diesel inboard.
Hiking racks on fore and aft tracks. The interior is currently bare but has room for very basic accommodations. She is currently US state registered. I do not know the situation on French taxes but she was commissioned and sailed there before export.
