Being a new boat the results didn't show. Probably in conservation mode during the Ft Lauderdale-Key West race they finished 5th, 2 hours behind the HPR Carkeek 40 and about 30 minutes faster than two Swan 42's. Better during the Key West Race Week they finished 4th against other 40' + Swans, J's, Ker and Mills boats.
As you know the Sydney GTS 43 can be raced fast in real time and in compensated. as you probably know this one:
Won two years ago the Sydney- Hobart overall and finished among the big boats leaving behind in real time many pure race boats.
They didn't enter this year's race and I was quite disappointed with that.
