After the race, Dougall Love (co owner of Romanza) commented:
“(The race was) good fun. A lot of changes from fast downwind to no wind, to too much wind, to upwind and finally, to the finish. But we sailed her well and kept her trucking along. Top speed 23.8kts this time and some very fast tight reaching.
“Romanza really is a remarkable design to be able to compete as she does and still be a very luxurious cruising boat.”
