Day 4 of racing at Hamilton Island Race Week was marked by a fresh breeze which eased away to 15kts to provide very pleasant full sail conditions..

On the photo-boat we were able to achieve a rare hook up with Beau Geste, the MOD70, ex Phraedo3, which not surprisingly has been the speedster of the regatta, and the boat that turns all heads..

Here's a few images of the very impressive MOD70 designed by top French designers VPLP.
