Maximus Fastnet

We were asked by probably the world's most successful racing navigator, Mike Quilter (nav to Blake, Dalton and Coutts), to assist him with weather forecasting and routing advice for August's Fastnet Race for the 100 ft Maximus. We sent him a detailed analysis, including high resolution Grib files, screen grabs showing key points and then talked him through how we saw the race unfolding. Maximus led the fleet, round the famous Irish Lighthouse and took Line Honours back in Plymouth. She won the big boat Class on corrected time by over four and half hours. Mike Quilter was thrilled with the support and wrote a special thank you note the day he got back home to Auckland.
