Peter Cunningham’s MOD70 PowerPlay (CAY), skippered by Ned Collier Wakefield has taken Multihull Line Honours in the 2020 RORC Caribbean 600 just four minutes ahead of Jason Carroll’s MOD70 Argo (USA).
Giovanni Soldini’s Maserati Multi70 (ITA) was third. A nail-biting finish rounded off an epic light airs tactical battle between three of the world’s fastest ocean-going multihulls.
During the 600-mile race, the lead changed at least seven times. Maserati fought tooth and nail, but their T-Foil rudders were more of a hindrance than an enhancement in the unusually light conditions.
Despite the disadvantage, Maserati came back time and time again to challenge for the lead. PowerPlay and Argo had a full-on 46-hour match race from start to finish and it all came down to the final leg from Redonda to Antigua.
The winner claimed line honours with an elapsed time of one day, 21 hours and 34 seconds.
Boats will be finishing the race at Fort Charlotte for the next three days.
