12m fully carbon offshore monohull, with the capacity to sleep a full crew and with a usable interior. This is a versatile boat, set up for high performance racing either short-handed or fully crewed, both harbour and offshore. Blink is built with racing in the infamous Cook Strait in mind, with robust construction and systems, foam core, and options chosen with the wisdom that 'to win you must first finish' in mind: twin rudders, twin hydraulic rams, and dual hydraulic keel power sources (electric and engine pumps).
Blink has broken a number of RPNYC offshore records and was 1st on elapsed time, Round North Island 2-handed 2014 (Rob Shaw and Tony Wells) and in 2017 (Tony and Vesna Wells).
