ex Kingfisher playing loose and fast

Monday, 23 February 2015

She may be a venerable old girl now but the old Kingfisher still has it in her, making close to a 440 mile day in the Barcelona World Race this weekend.

Cheminées Poujoulat may have set the 24hrs speed record for this edition of the race, so far, with 480 miles, but One Planet One Ocean have been knocking up some remarkable 24 hour runs with the vintage Owen Clarke designed ex Kingfisher, nearly 440 miles until early this morning. In sixth Aleix Gelabert and Didac Costa are just 360 miles behind the Garcia brothers on We Are Water, ex Virbac Paprec 2, winner of the 2007-2008 edition of the race.

Clearly Aleix and Didac are sailing our lady close to her potential...A donf !
