Are you ready for the ultimate sailing challenge?
The IC is simply one of the fastest singlehanded boats afloat. This derives from its unique design, adopting the narrow hull form inherited from its ancient canoe origins, together with the famous sliding seat which provide a hiking experience no other boat can offer with its inherent freedom from trapeze wires but with a 2m lever from the centre line offering a very powerful righting moment.
