RORC Transatlantic Race 2015 – In clearing skies off Arrecife, Lanzarote, Phaedo³ showed the rest of the competitors in the RORC Transatlantic Race 2015, and spectators ashore the amazing speed of the MOD70.

Starting 10 minutes behind the bulk of the fleet, Phaedo³, together with two other multihulls quickly passed through the fleet and at the first turning mark off Puerto Calero, Phaedo³ had a very respectable lead on all competitors.
