Giacomo breaks monohull record

The second boat to cross the finish line of ANZ Sail Fiji 2016 was Jim Delegat’s Volvo 70 Giacomo.

The crew had to complete a few tacks as they made their way through the reef and eventually crossed the finish line at 09:53:19 on Tuesday 7th June. Their elapsed time was 2 days 22 hours 53 minutes and 19 seconds.

Giacomo has also broken the race record with their time now going down in the history books for the monohull record. Team Vodafone Sailing holds the multihull record of 2 days 11 hours 31 minutes and 3 seconds.
