Great news from the Sydney-Hobart race. JAZZ did really well coming across the line 12th and coming 1st overall in the ORCi Class and 2nd in the IRC Class. We are particularly interested in JAZZ itself since Christian Ripard is chief helmsman onboard this canting keeled Cookson 50 owned by Chris Bull.
Christian also skippered ARTIE together with owner Lee Satariano in this year's Rolex Middle Sea Race just missing a 1st overall placing by 26 minutes.
Line honours went to WILD OATS XI whilst SECRET MEN'S BUSINESS (what a name!) came first overall in IRC Class.
