In IRCing TP52s, they are in effect being heavily turboed. To rate as TP52s the boats typically carry around 500-800kg of internal lead ballast. IRC is believed to hate this, so this is removed and extra weight added to the bulb. So immediately the boat is lighter and very much more stable. While the upwind sail area remains similar to the TP52 configuration, downwind it is very much enlarged through the addition of a bowsprit and converting to an A-sail set-up. Thus spinnaker poles and associated tackle such as pivoting jockey poles are removed, further saving weight, but also lowering their rating.

Octobre, For Sale 52' McConaghy Turbo TP 52 Current Price: EUR  595,000, Year: 2007 Located in Valencia, Spain, PACE ( ex RAN) is seriously for sale. Built for the Med Cup in 2007, PACE was modified in early 2008 with a long prod, extra big kites and a slightly deeper fin and bulb. Hence the world "turbo" applies as she has proven to be very very fast racing against all existing TP 52's modified for IRC, on both sides of the Atlantic in 2008 and 2009 and 2010. This is a turn key sale, with everything needed to step right on and continue winning. For 2011 she has the new "med cup" deck profile, new 2011 fin, and  new 3DI sails.  She has not lost a regatta under IRC in 2011
