VIDEO: It’s lumpy gravy aboard Comanche

Published on January 7th, 2015

Crewmember Justin “Juggy” Clougher talks to Skipper Ken Read, Navigator Stan Honey and the crew on this 24 hour report on the first day of their first major yacht race the 2014 Rolex Sydney Hobart aboard the new 100-foot Comanche.

After a fantastic start the weather was a punishing 30 knot southerly which overnight moderated as the front passed to the south with them. Comanche suffered the agony of its “aircraft carrier” design in these conditions. Ken Read the skipper explains the position. Actual on-board footage during the first 24 hours of the race.
