1175 is the same as a 4.7 or comet duo. it seems to me like topper are taking liberties as the vibe and topaz tres also sit at 1175 and both carry around four times the sail area of a 4.7 and similarly weighted hulls

Hi, Our club purchased a 'nearly new' Magno Sport at the start of this season as a training / hire boat. Topper suggested 1175 as the PY but couldn't confirm if this was the sport or the normal one. At the time sailwave had 1200 listed.

We currently use the 1175 which seems about right given that the boat is generally used by beginners and the spinaker is very rarely used (we sail on a narrow river)

Can't help thinking that an experienced crew on a course with a proportion of reaching would walk a handicap race on 1175.

It's not as quick as a double bottom N12 but certainly quicker than a Graduate or Solo on everything bar the beat

The boat has proved a popular purchase, so much so that one new couple have now bought their own -  and are already winning races in it!

We have two Magnos at our club and 1175 seems to suit fairly well.
They do seem to go well in the light stuff, perhaps due to the incredible weight of all that plastic providing incredible levels of momentum for a boat so small.
