Nexba is a Verdier designed Class 40 short handed offshore racing boat being prepared by John Bacon and David Sampson for the 2018 Melbourne to Osaka yacht race. With 6 crew going to the Gold Coast this will be a great test for this radical design, and the return trip will give John and David valuable 2-up miles.
