Representing the land-locked Switzerland, Teasing Machine contested the October 2014 Rolex Middle Sea Race and was showing excellent form in savage seas, only to be dismasted 20 miles from the finish. In August she won the 130nm RORC Channel Race from a good fleet of 87. The French designed boat also contested Cowes Week in August and won IRC Class 1. Teasing Machine prefers a big blow and is not a big fan of light air. Her form indicates she will love the Rolex Sydney Hobart and could be a real contender to win the Tattersall’s Cup.
