With David Raison’s groundbreaking Mini Teamwork experiencing mad speed and great results since her launch three years ago, it’s not a surprise that the new Minis for this next cycle have embraced the concept. You’re looking at an evolution of the original Raison boat, called the Magnum Max – this one will be skippered by Davy Beaudart for the next two seasons under the Cultisol brand with the main goal being the 2015 Mini Transat. Thanks to aesthetics and fear, the hull form is outlawed in other major design classes – the Open 60, TP52, Class 40 – so this is the only place to find ocean racing scows – at least until someone has the balls to go break Sydney-Hobart records in a 100 foot version…
We dig it; not only do we love scows, but we also like disruptive designs and the guys who put their finger up to the establishment. Speaking of scows, did you know the A-Scow Nationals are expecting up to 30 boats this June? And we’ll be covering it…live.
