Record build

Tuesday January 18 2011 Author: James Boyd Location: New Zealand

While the newly launched AC45 may be the world’s coolest race boat at present, building it and also productionising it in a mere four and a half months was a near miracle. Today Core Composites’ Tim Smyth tells us how it was done. After a winter and a half wait, Banque Populaire has finally gone ‘Code Amber’ on her Jules Verne Trophy attempt. In the Barcelona World Race the leaders are lining up for two slow complicated days. See yesterday’s quotes from the boats. The podium for leg two of the Velux 5 Oceans is complete. Bill Koch has taken an early lead in the minimaxi class at Key West Race Week.
