RORC Transatlantic Race '17 - Race Start [Back to Gallery]
The start of the 4th edition of the RORC Transatlantic Race off Marina Lanzarote, Arrecife.
Ludde Ingvall's Australian Maxi CQS leads the fleet at the start of the 4th RORC Transatlantic Race; the first leg of the Atlantic Anniversary Regatta - AAR.
The gentle conditions at the start did not last for long. Mike Broughton, navigator on Jens Kellinghusen's Varuna called the media team as the German Ker 56 was passing La Bocaina, the narrow gap between Lanzarote and Fuerteventura. “There’s buckets of water cascading down the deck with over 20 knots of boat speed power reaching. It is a pretty bumpy ride. We are leaving Lanzarote in our wake and getting ready for the first night at sea.”
Fair winds to all!
