We are looking forward to seeing some exciting racing in the OMR multihull class at this year’s Phuket July Regattas (Multihull Solutions Regatta, 12-15 July, and Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek, 17-21 July). Coming off a spate of wins in 2018 (MHSR, Kings Cup, Royal Langkawi and Bay Regatta) Dan Fidock’s Fugazi a 37-foot trimaran has been sold to Hong Kong-based Mark Thornburrow.
The boat is set to remain in Phuket and will surely be a favorite in the hands of Thornburrow who was recent winner of the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club's Nations Cup on his Flying Phantom foiling catamaran. Meanwhile, the Fugazi Racing team will be cutting its teeth on a new 10M sports cat. Fugazi (Ex Ninja), designed by Brett Bakewellwhite as a training boat for the 2013 Korean Americas Cup team. The boat weighs in at around 750kgs, despite having a mainsail larger than the original Fugazi trimaran. The boat is currently being optimized at Asia catamarans with the addition of adjustable carbon T foil rudders from Halls and Asiayachtspars. Little is known of the likely OMR rating, but it is sure to be a challenge.
The team for July will include Joel Berg, Nick Guthry, Scott McCook, Ciaran Corrigan and Dan Fidock.
