Awesome news that Peter Cunningham has purchased the MOD 70 Concise to complete a year at least of racing on the beast. The boat has been renamed Powerplay and Peter has decided to keep the Team Concise crew on for the season which is great news because I am part of the team:)
The racing season includes:
- Middle sea race 20th October 2018
- Transatlantic Race 24th November 2018
- Caribbean 600 14th Feb 2019
- Les Voiles de St Barths 14th April 2019
- Transpac race 10th July 2019
Formerly Concise 10, the record breaking trimaran will add a new dimension to the PowerPlay stable of race boats. The nucleus of the MOD70 crew, skippered by Ned Collier Wakefield, has joined the PowerPlay race team for the exciting new project. MOD70 PowerPlay will make its debut in the Rolex Middle Sea Race, followed by the RORC Transatlantic Race. The racing programme will continue in the Caribbean and United States for 2019.
“Tony Rey with Cloud10 Racing and I have been looking for a multihull opportunity for a while. So I am truly thrilled to have been able to acquire the MOD70 and to have Ned and his great team join us.” commented Peter Cunningham. “I am looking forward to some wonderful racing and as always with PowerPlay a lot of fun! Hopefully we will be able to get together with other MOD70s for some fleet racing.”
"PowerPlay will be starting with a turnkey optimised boat and a highly motivated fully trained race crew," commented Ned Collier Wakefield. "Next month's Rolex Middle Sea Race, with a variety of conditions and sailing angles, is the ideal start for PowerPlay, before the RORC Transatlantic Race in November"
