Indian, a Carkeek 47 launched in January 2014 is Craig Carter’s new ocean racing yacht. This pre-preg nomex construction yacht was built by Premier Composites in Dubai than leased to the Platoon TP52 team for the ORC Worlds in Kiel Germany. Delivered to the Woolwich dock from Hamburg in late October where it was optimised for offshore racing and had the electronics package upgraded for the demands of this Cat 1 race. This is her first Bluewater event and will provide an indication of how this latest generation HPR can perform offshore. Indian replaces Carter’s Archambault 40 in which he secured his current title, WA Bluewater Siska Champion. With five entries from WA, this team is well-organised and will represent one of WA’s best prepared teams for many years aboard a current generation powerful grand prix yacht.
