RIyachting TV feature Zaraffa gets ready at NEB
Skip Sheldon's Reichel Pugh 66 Zaraffa has spent a busy winter at New England Boatworks in Portsmouth, RI in preparation for the upcoming Transatlantic Race 2011.

This year’s race from Newport, RI to the Lizard, west of Plymouth, England, will offer staggered starts from June 26th-July 3rd, 2011 , and is for Racing, Racing/Cruising and Classic monohull yachts with a minimum length overall (LOA) of 40 feet.

Zarraffa won the Daimler Chrysler Transatlantic Race 2003. Since that time she has raced on both sides of the Atlantic in many major offshore events. For the past few years she has been a big part of the Offshore Sail training/racing program at the United States Naval Academy.

NEB’s job list on Zaraffa this winter has included several race modifications and upgrades designed to give this proven race winner a chance to be at the front of the fleet again.

Back in serious race mode for this year’s Transat Race, the Reichel Pugh Design office is working together with the boat builders at NEB on several speed enhancing upgrades including the addition of a 2.5 meter carbon fiber bow prod. For this year's race Zaraffa’s smallest spinnaker sail will be larger than the largest spinnaker used enroute to her 2003 race win.

The NEB built Zaraffa will be joining Lawrence Huntington’s Ker 50, - Snow Lion also built by NEB on the starting line on June 29.
