VOR70 I reckon
I like to talk a lot... sometimes I even make sense, mostly not...
I agree that Volvo OR 70 would be a good choice!
I've never really bothered to think about how our polar compares to the real boats, but in this case I think VO70 (or open 60, or IMOCA 60) is a little too fast. There are mostly boats of 35-45ft on the entry list.

There is a first 44.7 on both lists
There is a farr 11.6 aka farr 38 on both lists
I think swan 36 might be a match too (little slow maybe), and there's more on the entry list that are probably more similar (than VO70/open60/IMOCA60) to the real boats in the SOL boat house

Link to boathouse doesn't seem to be working..I guess VO 70.
I've corrected the link to our list of boats.

I was going to go with a Farr 38

The First 44.7 hasn't been used much and has a useful polar.

Looking at the Calendar we have the VO70 in the Christmas Ocean race.

Agree with Kroppy, nice to have average boat of the fleet not the fastest one. Would add FinnGulf FG43.
Big & fast boats are always fun, but I'd vote for kropp's idea; a not that big nor fast boat: Swan 36, X35 OD or, new this summer, 11 metre OD.
well we've got a First 44.7 and a VO70 in our boathouse. There's 1 of each in the race IRL. I'd say one of those 2
Thanks guys.. First 44.7 it shall be :-)
