Lloyd Thornburg’s Phaedo^3 has been in Lanzarote the last week doing some final preparation before the start of the RORC Transatlantic 2016.
On the alongside dock is another MOD70, Maserati, who will be hoping to foil as well as sail across the Atlantic. It will be an interesting race for both boats to see how they fare against each other.
The navigators have so far predicted a longer race than last year, maybe a seven day crossing to Grenada.
