Celebrations as Comanche wins Sydney to Hobary Yacht Race
Dec 30, 2015 Ken Read, the American skipper of super-maxi Comanche, was full of praise for his yacht after it took home the line honors in the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race.
The Comanche crossed the finishing line in Hobart’s Derwent River estuary after two days, eight hours, 58 minutes of sailing over 50 nautical miles ahead of compatriot Rambler 88.
Commenting on the victory, Read said:
“I think it’s fair to say we’ve got the fastest 100-footer in the world.. You saw what it did off the starting line and what it did down that first run. We were 30 miles ahead when we broke. We love this boat, Jim and Kristy have given us this platform to sail that is nothing shy of spectacular.”
