Le A31 PENFOLD AUDI SPORT gagne les 285 MILE LAUNCESTON-HOBART RACE.
David Ellis et son équipage ont fêté cette victoire à l'arrivée à Hobart.
Propriétaire du A31 depuis quelques années, bateau bien préparé, mât carbone, David Ellis navigue à Melbourne.
“We had learned a lot from last year’s race and we had two excellent new sails, a Code 0 and an A7 reaching sail, and we used both a lot of the time. Our big break came early this morning when the wind shifted from west to south-west in Storm Bay, and we gained a lot on the bigger boats, including Ramrod which had been leading on handicap at that stage. Coming up the Derwent with the sou’wester gusting to 28 knots were had a reefed mainsail, originally a No 2 headsail, then down to a No 4 jib,”
Félicitations à David Ellis et son équipage !
