Hugh Styles has the I Series Volvo Extreme 40 in town at the moment with Anarchist, Macca on board doing some corperate sailing including sprints between Manly and the Harbour Bridge.

Get out on the harbour and check it out.

Keep up to date with it here -

Should be something on Sports tonight on channel 10 @ 10.30pm

The VX40 took on 2 x Tornadoes (GER and Bundy crewing for Carolijn Brouwer) and 2 18 Skiffs, (Appliances Online and Rang and Famish)

Tornadeos smoked the 18s by a big margin as the VX40 did the T's. Talk was the Ts were twice as quick upwind than the 18s whilst also much quicker down. The VX40 could not sail slow enough for the other boats.

Okay Karl! If money was no obstacle, I could see me owning an Extreme 40 racing team.
