Team Redan answers challenge nr 2 & 3

Since challenge nr 2 & 3 have a long lead time of 2 months we would like to summarize our answers to the challenge. We believe the best approach is to have a constant flow of information during the whole challenge and not eg 1 movie at the end.

 The challenge(s) are: Describe the preparation for the season and the first trip’s with the new Dyneema Rigging

 Team Redan posted 9 fully compiled movies on youtube (total hits: 2200).

 Two of them picturing our preparation:

Six video’s describing the regatta’s we raced with the new rigging:

    Congratualtions on your impressive regatta results! I hope one day our team gets some line so we can perhaps sail this season too. Sadly we are unable to compete for the grand prize without any line. Have some tapas for me.
