Commissioned in late October on the River Hamble on the South coast of England by Ancasta and Marine Pro UK, Lady Mariposa Racing came to life. In just a few days she was stood high on her keel and attracting a lot of attention. The new work shop container from Pentalver was a hive of activity with Hall spars building the mast, and Diverse Yachts installing electronics. The final piece of the puzzle was delivered by Elvstrom Sails and after a lot of hard work she was ready for her maiden voyage on a sunny afternoon with flat water and 12kts of breeze.
