Congratulations to Nico Poons and his Charisma team for winning the Rolex Farr 40 North American Championship last week. The Charisma team, which included Quantum Atlantic’s Jason Currie, sailed with a full inventory of Quantum Fusion M Sails and showed impressive speed to win the event by 8 points over Jim Richardson’s Barking Mad, also using a full inventory of Quantum Sails.
Barking Mad’s 2nd place at the Rolex Farr 40 North American Championship also sealed off an impressive 2013 Circuit Championship win for the team. Congratulations again to Charisma and Barking Mad on an impressive year!
Next up for the Farr 40 class is the world championship in Newport, Rhode Island, August 27 -30.
