Shaw 650s winning in Geelong, winning in Tassie

28 / 01 / 2013

Well done to Monkey Business, Cam Rae's green flying machine, winning in style at Geelong Raceweek 2013 (festival of sails) against a gun fleet of Australia's sportsboats including some lightweight arms racers like Vivace (the Leigh-Smith's other ride alongside their shaw 650 Moneyshot), a fleet of Thompsons and a few other 6.5m boats including another 2 Shaw 650s and a Viper 640.

 

The Cam consistently finished up the top in a variety of wind conditions, proving the strength of the Shaw not only in the light and the heavy, but also in the middle wind strengths. With 5 Shaw 650s already confirmed for the Aussie Nationals in Mid April, now is the time to get your Shaw thing on, and line up a new boat to race with the rest of the 650s!
