Martin Cross, with Alpha Crucis, AUS61, has entered Cowes Week from the 4th to the 11th August after having the boat IRC rated.
Its IRC handicap is 0.981.
He hopes other 5.5s can join them as a warm up before the World Championship the following week.
If the fleet can grow to five boats, then the 5.5 will have their own class in Cowes Week.
