An exhilirating ride around the Isle of Wight with the crew of Race For Water

Above and below: These clips are from onboard the MOD70 Race For Water which is currently
lying third in the Rolex Fastnet Race just ahead of her sistership Veolia
Environement. They’ve just gone round the Rock and are flying! These videos
showing Steve Ravussin steering the 6.5 ton rocket ship are from the last
Friday of Cowes Week when editor David Glenn sailed round the Isle of Wight
for a quick demo. We hit 30.7 knots between St Catherine’s and Bembridge and
despite stopping for half an hour to fix the main hull rudder got round in
less than 4 hours. Eight of the MOD70s have been sold for a major world tour
of passage racing and inshore round the cans stuff. Watch out for an
upcoming feature in Yachting World.
