Around Oz record set


Recommended Posts

Geronimo just set the Around Australia record starting and finishing in Sydney Harbour in 17 days 12 Hours 57 minutes and 5 seconds.

Had a tough final run up the Oz coast being hit buy a 70 knot storm cell along with a mini tornado which picked up the boat and drove them backwards at 20 knots. The boat sustained stearing damage and wa drifting inland at 10 knots with sails down before the crew repaired it and continued to the finish.

Well done guys.
