The MRX is a Farr 1020 with a small steroid pack stuck up it’s transom, a better rig, a racing deck with a bigger cockpit, a better keel and about 1200kg lighter.
In Auckland they have 10 of them – all identical and just like the J24 they offer incredibly close racing. The JET crew has just been over there doing the MRX Pacific Keelboat Challenge and having a fantastic time
Next year we need to get a group of 6 J crews to go over and have a fantastic J party sailing in this regatta, we would have a ball. I know because we did this year.
I have put together a story and a few pics about it all – too much to go on the J site front page so here is a link to it on another page
