Submitted by Suellen Hurling on Sat, 09/06/2012 - 07:24
Humphrey Sherratt and his Elysium crew crossed the finish line in Noumea this morning bringing their Evolution Sails Sail Noumea race to an end after 6 days, 17 hours, 55 minutes and 6 seconds.
Crew member Richard MacAllister said it was a longer than expected trip by 2 days but Elysium never experience more than 45 knots.
Humphrey's son Jack was on board and said that he "hugged the bath mat" for a while during the race.
Ken Ormandy, who is suppose to be on his honeymoon, said the racing lamb shanks dinner (with bone removed to save weight) were excellent! Yes, Ken is meant to be on his honeymoon. He, along with two other crew members are on their way to the aiport to head back to Auckland this morning. Ken's new wife will be waiting for him at the gate - what an understanding women!!!
Congratulations to all the Elysium crew on a great race.
