Of Hammo, Maggie and the AC
We´ve been out on the softest race track at Audi Hamilton Island Race Week, where Marcus Blackmore´s TP52 Hooligan has won the first three IRC races sailed by the top end fleet and the damage wreaked to the aspirations of other owners and crew this owner and boat has exhibited over recent years on the Australian circuit looks set to continue.
Blackmore set out in 2011 to win the IRC Nationals. He consulted with Cloud´s Badham about the average wind speeds across the courses and configured the former Emirates Team New Zealand TP52, now Hooligan, for those conditions. Then he added a very talented team.
Surprise, surprise he won and has kept winning. He won the Australian Championships and Audi Hamilton Island Race Week in 2011, 2012 and is on track for 2013.
We talked to the Vitamin King dockside at the 2013 Audi Hamilton Island Race Week.
While the big boats ghost around the Whitsundays, Sail Townsville starts this weekend ahead of 2013 SeaLink Magnetic Island Race Week and Sail-World will be on the Strand...
