Congratulations to Brian Petersen and his Ran Tan II crew for claiming line honours in the 2018 Auckland Noumea Yacht Race.
Ran Tan had a great tussle with Sydney TP52, Frantic which kept them pushing all the way to the finish line.
The team crossed the finish line in Noumea at 13:13:29 New Caledonian time, however their results will show 14:13:29 corrected to New Zealand time. An elapsed time of 4 days, 4 hours, 13 minutes and 29 seconds.
Brian Petersen said he was relieved to be in Noumea and on stable land after what he described as being a horrendous, yet fantastic race.
Full video interview coming soon.
Well done RAN TAN II!
