Well done and good luck for next year.
I would like your opinion (if you have any) for the Greek RIB that participated especially in comparison with the other RIBs of similar length that participated in F1 and F2 (9.9m is the length of the TOPLINE which was in F2 class).

I believe that somewhere it was mentioned that you needed a longer bopat (10 mtrs length) to do this race.

Well this is the TORNADO 6.5 mtrs made underlicense in Egypt by afrodity marine that came forth in F3 and without any problems either


RICO 2 on the out side and the Corsair 33 on the outside catching up on Bladerunner at the strat of the final leg


Corsair 33


And finally I believe that these guys deserve a lot of praise

@MANOS - Interesting photos and comments ;-).
Obviously there is nothing new in saying that longer boats can handle rough seas better, but I also believe this explanation is oversimplifying things.
After all the Greek TOPLINE Rib dominated all 4 legs of the race not only against smaller boats but also against boats of similar length such as the SR9 some of which were in F1 whereas the Greek was in F2 class. I believe that the combination of excellent boat (interesting hull design with 2 * 2 steps) good preparation and excellent effort from the Greek crew more likely explains what happened.
Once again many congratulations to the Egyptian participation - WELL DONE

Dispite fuel problems (a lot of water in the diesel) finished third.
