Doyle Sails NZ Newsletter – February 2013
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
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.
