“We have just lifted the yachts “Nasdaq” and “Dare to Lead” after more than a year in the water and over 40,000 nautical miles of sailing. The hulls are noticeably cleaner than we have experienced when lifting the boats after previous races and we are delighted to see that the Coppercoat has clearly outperformed the anti-fouls used before.”
Simon Johnston, Clipper Fleet Maintenance Manager
