PHRF Sport Boat

The Sport Boat Fleet is built for speed.

It’s the home of the Viper 640, the light, rapid, carbon-fiber-rich 21-foot, scoop-tailed speed boat.

And AYC also has J/80s. These 26-foot speed machines fly in a breeze with lots of sail area and a deep keel. And that famous boat, Dave and Wendy Christensen’s fabulous, home-built Mini 650 appears often.

Exciting, right? Here’s a video of the 2014 Viper 640 North American Championship in Long Beach.

PHRF Sport Boats are monohulls flying asymmetrical spinnakers. They conform to the SoCal PHRF rules.
