It took Quantum Racing 8 races to finally get a bullet in the 52 SuperSeries, but they did in race 8 today. They sure don’t look like they won! They are 4th overall, and in striking distance with 2 to go. Funny photo thanks to Max Ranchi obviously not taken in race 8…

You get up early and have a quick breakfast. Next you jump into your layers of clothing – thermals, shorts, polar, thermal socks, sailing boots, foul weather trousers, foul weather jacket, sunscreen, sunglasses, gloves. You slip the lines; 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, Start, and off you are. The wind is howling at 25kts in […]

Jesus, how long will Quantum Racing continue to assault our eyes with this failed pseudo-psychedelic boat and sail graphic design? It was played out after one season.
