Windchase is a Pacific 38, a New Zealand designed boat from the '70-ies. The "P38" (as the type is called by Kiwis) was specifically designed for offshore sailing. Conventional lines, relative heavy build, long fin keel, masthead rig. The yacht sails comfortable and safe, and is easy to crew with two. This type is a popular yacht to cruise the South-Pacific (also see this article). During our first sail in the Marlborough Sounds (South Island) we quickly saw that Windchase would be the ideal boat for us. Apart from the design, this was due to the very extensive equipment on board, and well maintained state.

Windchase is no18 from the plug, and the first P38 with wheel steering. She has always had this name and dark blue hull. Many of the previous owners have been offshore (to the Islands). Subsequently, Windchase has been more and more fitted out to this purpose. There is lots of extra storage inside, and there many clever features on board. The key specifications are:

- Length 11,6m (38ft), ample headroom
