Blow Out The Cobwebs Not Batten Down The Hatches

[ 08 / 09 / 2006 ]
Round Up Maxi Worlds Rolex Cup 2006

With the winds finally blowing at 10-12knots from the prevailing north-east, the last day’s racing saw the Maximus crew continue to work well together and make no mistakes to ensure another day’s smooth sailing and managing 19 knots boat speed off 15 knots of wind. The still waters of the Costa Smeralda also sprung into life with more waves to surf on, making it a nice sail to blow the cobwebs out for the last race.

Conditions remained well suited to the lighter Maxi boats with more sail advantage in the lighter airs. For Maximus it was an enjoyable, if frustrating week’s sailing. Richard Bouzaod, “A frustratingly light week and guess we learnt how quick the inshore maxis are in light airs - that’s what they are designed for.” Alfa Romeo proving this taking handicap honours without even needing to be on the water for the last race.


The Maximus Team rounded up their regatta with a round of dark & stormy’s on the boat after tidy up post race. Little deflated and worn out but in good spirits having enjoyed competing in the Maxi Worlds Rolex Cup 2006 and their sights set on the next challenges in bigger seas and fiercer winds such as Sydney Hobart and ocean racing record attempts.

Brian BJ Jones commented, “It’s been a light air regatta & Maximus’ design is based on pressure breezes and long off shore racing which made it hard for the crew to show the boat’s full potential.”
