In a winning debut, the new 37-foot, nine-inch C&C 115 designed by Tim Jackett did a bit more than stretch her legs. Guaranteed Period claimed a comfortable victory in her class at the Chicago NOOD this June in conditions that ranged from five knots and flat water to 18 knots and steep seas. With a Ballast/Displacement of 36 percent, D/L of 147 and SA/D of 24.1, she is well on the performance end of the racer/cruiser category. The standard carbon mast keeps the weight down and offers a bridge clearance of 59 feet, nine inches.

The C&C 115 has three sail packages with the full set of Doyle Mylar/Kevlar mainsail and jibs and multi-weight chutes for those planning a serious campaign. There is also a basic race package as well as a cruising Dacron package because yes, she is a cruiser too. The bulb fin draws six feet, eight inches for access to most anchorages. Two cabins and the main saloon settees offer berths for six, if you really need to pack them in, with an L-shaped galley that offers corners to brace yourself underway. With a 28-horsepower auxiliary, 26-gallon fuel capacity and 70 gallons of water tankage, the C&C 115 promises high-performance cruising between competitive events.
