News Laissez Faire 2 cleans up in Musket Cove Fiji Regatta Week

11 Sep 2014

Chris McMaster’s Laissez Faire 2 has come 1st overall at the 31st Musket Cove Fiji Regatta Week. Laissez Faire 2 had a clean sweep at the sailing events of the regatta, held 5-10 September, taking 1st Line Overall in the Tauranga Marine Sandbank Race and 1st Line overall (including multihulls) in the Fiji Water Round Malolo Race.

Unsurprisingly, being Chris's boat, Laissez Faire 2 is fully powered by Doyle Stratis sails. She has the first production set of Stratis ICE cruising sails, that have now done over 12,000nm in two years, including two return trips from Auckland to Fiji and the Round North Island SSANZ race. That these sails are still being used for convincing wins is a real demonstration of the performance and durability qualities of Stratis ICE.
