The student team comprised of Aussies, Brits and a Dutch girl onboard Force EDC have achieved their goal by winning the student division with an amazing lead and tenth overall.
“I guess we probably sort of won it (the student division) a couple of days ago but it was good to finish of today as first student, and 10th overall so we are happy with this being our first time and we did not really know what to expect coming to the event having not sailed Mumm 30’s before, having not sailed in the Tour Voile before, so we were really happy with the way that things have gone, and looking forwards to coming back next year and trying again. Without having a close look at it I think the Atlantic offshores is where we won the student division. I think that in one race we put 40 points on the other student so that probably where we won the student class and also established ourselves in the top ten in the offshore legs in the Atlantic, yeh”.
Kirwan Robb skipper for next years event, speaks about the next Aussie campaign “Well the boats been brought and will arrive in Australia in one months time, so the we will just be setting it but and beginning to practice until early next year before we have to send the boats over on containers and I will be the skipper and that’s about it. We hope that having done it once that we will be able to do it better next year”.
