Middle Sea Race 2018 - MOD70 Powerplay
First race of the season on the mighty Powerplay with the new owner Peter Cunningham. He absolutely loved it and got the hang of driving her very quickly.
Great call from Ned on the start with 1 reef that kept it perfect for the reach down to the first mark. Good breeze upwind and light as expected throughout the Channel. Got caught in a Very fruity squall or down draft on the N leg from Stromboli. We saw 50kts TWS with the solent and full main which was a big lesson learnt for everybody!
Marseratti just got us in the end but all in all a great first race against the foiling MOD70.
