Sydney-Hobart

Just a new look at some of the performance cruisers, starting by that Sydney 43 GTS, already mentioned, that is sailing ahead of a ker 40, probably the fastest of all racing 40fters. Well, it is all in the family since the Sydney is also a Ker designed boat. The Sydney had improved its performance since the last look overtaking 4 boats. He is racing in the 20th position while the Ker 40 comes in 22.

That First 40 fleet is making a hell of a race and improved a lot its overall position. The first one is "wicked" and it has just come from 47th to 29th place. What a race

Ariel jumped from 55 to 32, Two true from 48 to 34 and the others are coming on 37, 38, 46, 58 and 66th place. Truly amazing, specially regarding the boats ahead that are racing in the middle of much bigger boats and overtaking all the time. What a race, what a boat for upwind sailing in nasty weather

Regards

Paulo
