    This is fantastic! Brings back fond memories of the 29 times I have raced in this prestigious event and I have won it 17 times. It was most frightful when my craft struck a partially submerged shipping container that had fallen off a Thai registered container ship… I wish strong winds to all the competitors and a safe voyage!

  2. Loved this event whn I lived there…..cheering them in was amazing!
