Sail-World.com : Amazing Day onboard TeamVodafoneSailing

Amazing Day onboard TeamVodafoneSailing

'Crossing the Molle Passage - Meridien Marinas Airlie Beach 22nd Annual Race Week 2011'    Teri Dodds - copyright

Well, speechless comes to mind when you find yourself onboard TeamVodafoneSailing for a race in the Meridien Marinas Airlie Beach Race Week.

A slick crew lead by skipper Simon Hull and Kevin Peet calling tactics, sent the Orca 60 multi-hull around the 27nm course in 01:39:06, with their nearest rival Malcolm Richardson's Nacra 36 Malice coming in 37 minutes behind.

Hitting 30 knots as we reached across the passage towards the Molle Islands, was just amazing.
