FOMO | St Petersburg to Habana Race

Verkar somn att Lloyd Thornburg har kompletterat sina Phaedos (Gunboat och MOD70) med en “vanlig” båt.

Ytterligare ett race man borde göra?

Lloyd Thornburg’s “Fomo” crew are now in Havana Cuba, celebrating an astonishing double win in the St Petersburg to Cuba Race, not only wining on handicap but also on line honours.

Quote from Lloyd “ Epic Race, I am pleased with how the team gave absolutely everything, FOMO’s first line honours and win! Now we are enjoying Havana, not missing out on anything”

Quote from navigator Simon Fisher “ After what turned out to be a much more complicated race than we had anticipated we were very happy to snatch line honours in the final mile. Having setup upwind of the opposition in a dying breeze as we approached the Cuban coast we were able to pass the TP52 CONVICTION as we reached in under code 0 with a better angle to finish line overhauling them to take the win.

Crew on board for the race were: Lloyd Thornburg, Simon Fisher, Nick Rogers, Pete Cumming, Rob Greenhalgh, Mark Andrews, Ben Quatromoni, Henry Bomby and Jan Dekker.

    Och idag startar Miami to Havana. Dessa race är en direkt konsekvens av Obamas politik gentemot Kuba, du kanske får skynda dig innan gränsen stängs igen.

      Kubas gräns har inte varit stängd. Eller du kanske menar USAs gräns?

        Menar förstås USA:s sanktioner mot Kuba, men det förstod du säkert.

    Nej, det förstod jag inte.

      I call bullshit. Var nånstans i “du kanske får skynda dig innan gränsen stängs igen” står det Kubas gräns, eller ens vilken gräns? Du ville inte förstå.

        Jaha. Vilken gräns avsågs då?

          Ja, Sveriges kanske?

          Gränsen när diskussionen blev löjlig?

            Fint sagt.
