The 2002 CDK Orma 60 Trimaran named TeamVodafoneSailing,is one of a breed of ORMA 60 trimarans built to sail fast and get instant spectator approval!
Measuring 18m (60 foot) in length and 18m (60 foot) wide, with a mast height of 30m (100 feet) above the water, the ORMA 60 targets average speeds of 18 knots to windward in 25 knots of breeze, or 30 knots on a broad reach. Open 60s have averaged 25 knots for 24 hours, which means there are very few boats in Australasia capable of racing it for line honours. The boat carries an impressive sail area. Sail area up wind: 285 m² – 180m² main sail +105 m² solent jib Sail area down wind: 445 m² – 180 m² main sail + 265 m² gennacker It has sail size and loads similar to an IIAC America’s Cup class yacht, but weighs only 6 ton versus 26 ton. Many of the world’s most intrepid ocean sailors have carved out their careers on ORMA 60s through the classes’ 20 year history. In 2006 French sailor Lionel Lemonchois shaved more than four days off the record in the 2006 Route de Rhum, the legendary solo race between Saint-Malo and Pointe-a-Pitre, to cross the Atlantic in less than seven days, and in 2007 Franck Cammas and Steve Ravussin on Groupama 2 completed the Transat Jacques Vabre between France and Brazil in 10 days, 38 minutes and 43 seconds. Single handed average speed targets are 18 knots to windward in 25 knots of breeze, with a real pointing angle of 47 degrees, or 30 knots on a broad reach. This boat is a MUST for anyone wanting to compete in Open 60's Racing, Contact Think Yachts today to learn more!
