Doyle Sails Australia would like to congratulate the owner and crew of Secret Men’s Business 3.5 on their victory in the Rolex Sydney to Hobart race winning the coveted Tattersall Cup for overall first place.
This year’s race was owner Geoff Boettcher’s 22nd tilt at the trophy and his many years of perseverance have finally paid off.
In the year running up to the race Secret Men’s Business 3.5 has been working with the team at Doyle Sails to produce a race winning inventory of sails capable of beating the rest of the fleet and robust enough to win one of the toughest races of its kind.
The inventory included Stratis carbon/ twaron mainsails and headsails built from Doyle’s Stratis custom laminate at our plant in Auckland. The sails were designed by Doyle’s in-house design team led by Richard Bouzaid and finished at the Doyle’s Australia and New Zealand lofts. Downwind sails were to our newly evolved designs.
Secret Men’s Business has been enjoying more than its share of victories in recent months preceding this victory with a win in the IRC division of the Premiere’s Cup in South Australia as well as line honours in the Haystack Island Race.
These are basically the same top-of-the-line sails that Temerity now has (well, the main, anyway). Good company to be in!
