Gascoigne Cup gets Brannew fired up for Rolex Sydney Hobart

Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race entrant Brannew is looking all fired up for her second race south this year, scoring an impressive IRC win in today’s Gascoigne Cup short ocean race off the Heads.

“It was an ideal day for the Beneteau First 40s, anything over 14 knots and they really go well to windward,” said owner/skipper Chris Bran. “Today we sailed in a 12-17 knot sou’easter…just the thing.”
