Doyle Sails NZ Newsletter – February 2013

It’s been a long and hot summer here in New Zealand, with lots going on out on the water. Offshore, Mike and Richard have been away racing in regattas including Key West Race Week and the RORC Caribbean 600. We also enjoyed three days of racing in the Millennium Cup here in Auckland. Back at the loft we have been hugely busy as yachts prepare for the upcoming Med summer season and work has also been progressing well on the sails for new builds including 43.9m Encore and 52m Dona Francesca.

 

We were thrilled to see Doyle skipper Alex Thomson, on Hugo Boss, take third place in the Vendee Globe, setting the record for fastest Briton to circumnavigate on a monohull. In more record setting, Team Australia smashed the Sydney-Hobart record with the help of their new STRATIS main. For those focused on sail performance and durability, Doyle is the first port of call.

 

Please keep in touch with all your news.
