Early Concept for Q7

Q7 Re-Imagined

To Celebrate Falcon's Centenary in 2026

'Falcon' is a joy to sail. With a generous sail area, narrow beam and low freeboard she offers a connection to the water that's both metaphoric and literal. In light air and smooth waters she has a level of performance that still gives many of her more modern counterparts a run for their money. Fans of the Q Class include three times America's Cup winner Dennis Connor who owned and sailed Q8, 'Cotton Blossom II' in San Diego and the French sailing legend Bruno Trouble who owned and raced Q16, 'Jour de Fete'.  

"I’ve been sailing all my life on the best boats and these Q boats are a dream to sail ... They are true racing boats, you ease an inch on the main and it changes the boat completely. Adjusting the runners makes a difference. They’re extremely sensitive and subtle.”  Bruno Trouble, March 2016 issue of Classic Boat Magazine
