Zaraffa

 

This successful American yacht, winner of the IMS and IRC divisions of this year’s Trans Atlantic Race, will race south with an outstanding crew including Ted Hood Jr. and Volvo Ocean Race navigator Mark Rudiger, who was on board Assa Abloy when she took line honours in the 2001 Sydney Hobart Race.  She recently placed third on corrected time in the Rolex Middle Sea Race.
