Whitbread racer

UBS Switzerland at the Royal Cape Yacht Club,Cape Town.

This was what they used to race around the world in the days ofthe Whitbread Race,which later became the Volvo Ocean Race we now have,this boat was built in Switzerland,which is land locked, to get the boat out they used a commercial transport plane,memory tells me the hull weighs only 4.5 tons?
