Team Vodafone Sailing smashes record

Team Vodafone Sailing have smashed the ANZ Sail Fiji record to become the fastest boat ever to sail from Auckland to Denarau!

Simon Hull and his team crossed the finish line at Port Denerau at 22:31:03 on Monday 6th June just 59 hours 31 minutes and 3 seconds after the start on Saturday 4th June. That’s under 60 hours for 1,110 nautical miles! The previous record was 3 days 20 hours 49 minutes and 36 seconds set by Beau Geste in 2014.

“We averaged about 19 knots the whole way I think!” said navigator Guy Hewson.

“It’s great to finally get a record for this race!” said skipper Simon Hull. “It was awesome. Wet and wild, but awesome.”

The crew are now recovering from their awesome race.
