VICTOIRE is one of the, if not the, most successful Cookson 50 ever raced. As JAZZ, she was world famous for winning races from the Caribbean to Europe and then on to Australia. Her current owner purchased her in 2012 and kept right on winning with overall wins in the 2013 Sydney to Hobart and the Gosford to Lord Howe race. Also, just recently 2nd in class (behind a sistership) in IRC 0 for the 2014 Hobart race. Full safety gear, new sails in 2014, updated navigation area.
VICTOIRE is ready to keep on going and has an owner who is serious about selling her. All new sails in 2015 in time for the Hobart so used in only one race. Owner asks to bring offers!!!
Since 2010 Jazz/Victorie has consistently been on the podium in ocean races short and long, club racing and regattas throughout the world.

In several of the above events VICTOIRE competed against other Cookson 50s and TP 52s, and was not beaten by either. Unlike many other boats of her size racing offshore, the Cookson 50 is designed and built to cope with the toughest conditions, and VICTOIRE has never retired from an offshore race. If you want to win offshore in a boat of the 50ft size range, VICTOIRE should be your choice.
In 2010/2011 VICTOIRE was been returned to mint condition, with a new engine, a complete overhaul of the keel and its canting system including a new electronic control system and a new upgraded hydraulic manifold, new non-slip finish on deck and new epoxy finish on underwater hull surface, much new standing rigging, almost complete renewal of running rigging, almost complete renewal of sail wardrobe, and many other upgrades and renewals including a new carbon fixed bowsprit.
She is ready to race and continue her winning ways.
