The Sun Fast 3600, “Kraken,” is competing in the Newcastle Bass Island Yacht Race!

The most recent addition to the Sun Fast line left the starting line in the Australian race this Friday, the 3rd of October. After her launch at the Sydney Boat Show this August, the sailboat is racing in the Newcastle Bass Island Yacht Race, which is now, as of this year, the third race in the famous Blue Water Pointscore Series.

The former owner of a Sun Fast 3200, Todd Giraudo is now the proud new owner of the Sun Fast 3600, which he has christened “Kraken.” He has already raced in the Blue Water Pointscore Series, aboard a Sun Fast 3200, as well as in other big Australian regattas.

The Newcastle Bass Island Race covers 200 nautical miles and represents an exceptional opportunity for Giraudo and his crew to train and to test the performance of the Sun Fast 3600 while he prepares for the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, which covers 630 nautical miles and will begin on the December 26th, 2014.
