"The fastest yacht in the southern hemisphere, Sean Langman’s imposing 60-foot trimaran
and its six adrenaline-fuelled crewmembers are gearing up to try and break the first of a number of South Pacific
course and race
records. World-renowned marine
forecaster Roger ‘Clouds’ Badham says conditions this coming Friday, February 22, could create the perfect weather
window to break Mari Cha III’s 1999 course record
to Hobart. "
I know the guys really want to do it in 24 hours. Which will be a big challenge. Current record
is 1 day 18 hours 27 minutes and some seconds.
Mari Cha is 147 foot and runs with 27 crew. Team Australia
is 60 foot and has 6 crew.
Also the guys are pushing the message that they are have a clean run green run, human power only - no engines running non stop to drive canting keels and stuff.
Good Luck Lads.
