S/V Gudrun V

Gudrun V is a 39ft (42ft loa) aluminum monohull built 1981 according to the IOR racing rules. Like many of the old IOR racers she was later retrofitted for cruising, which involved shortening the mast and adding amenities like a fridge and shower. While space and headroom below deck is limited, she has a huge cockpit that seats 8 or more. Her specialty is going upwind (30ยบ), but the crew very much prefers sailing downwind.
