Onboard Earthrace

Chris Davies - Sep 12, 2006

We first wrote about Earthrace, the gorgeous carbon-fibre and Kevlar trimaran which is planning on smashing the current world record for circumnavigating the globe in a powerboat, back in August.  Now the lucky minxes over at Luxist have had a chance to tour the interior.  I say “tour”, but it’s a pretty quick one since the accomodation is quite like burying yourself alive (only you have to pay $5 a pop, since they’re still raising money for the record attempt).

Still, claustrophobia aside, it’s well worth going and having a look at how several strapping New Zealanders will live in the name of racing endurance.
