Volvo Round Ireland Race 2016

Lloyd Thornburg’s Phaedo^3 lined up for the start of the Volvo Round Ireland Race 2016 against two other MOD70s in perfect conditions off Wicklow, Ireland today.

Phaedo^3 led the field off the line, and at time of writing, all three trimarans are within miles of each other off Waterford on the South East corner of Ireland.

A tricky night lies ahead before the multihulls followed by the rest of the 60 plus strong fleet enter stronger South Westerlies ready for a fast ride up the West coast.
