Rush (1005)

Name Origin: Rush came with the boat when she was purchased 9 months ago. Loosely based on the 70's rock band and named for the sleek and fast racing performance, we have kept and embraced the name (and the music).

Crew Adventures: The crew has a long history of Swiftsure races on multiple yachts going back more than 30 years, but we have enjoyed learning the idiosyncrasies of our new race boat and are still learning how to extract every fraction of a knot of speed we can coax out of Rush.

Racing History: Prior to this year, Rush was mainly OD raced, but after an extensive winter refit we have enjoyed racing her in nearly all local distance and buoy PHRF races, where she has lived up to her name. This years Swiftsure will be her longest race to date.
