Broken gearcase in the Fujairah race

Feb 201528
Broken

It was a frustrating end to a hard race weekend for the Gold Coast -Altman Marine team. Just five hundered meters after the start one gearcase said ciao. Pal Virik Nilsen & Tom Barry-Cotter  had to retire because of that unfortunately. The race was on really rought water and half of the fleet had to retire due to problems and even av fire ended the day of the Fazza boat.

Pal says:  - It has been a really hard start for our new team. Some changes needs to be done but i know the crew did the beste they can so i am thankful to them. Anyway, our boat had brand new gearcases on so it just one of thoose things you can´t predict in advance.

So i feel sorry for our Goldcoast sponsor and Altman Marine  but we will come back in another race stronger for sure!
