The McConaghy built Ragamuffin (previously Genuine Risk) set the new record this weekend for Asia's longest Category one Offshore Race in the Audi Hong Kong Vietnam Race.

Syd Fischer’s 90ft Super Maxi designed by Dubois sailed the 656nm race in 42h 41m 20s, averaging around 16 knots with top speeds of 22 knots. Syd Fischer was delighted by not only taking Line Honours but also breaking the record: 'it was a good race' said Syd crediting the win to 'a good crew and a good boat....we did it by 4 minutes.'

Second across the line was the Banuls designed MC²60 Mach 2, launched earlier this year by McConaghy Boats. The 60ft Catamaran, helmed by Raphael Blot, exceeded speeds of 30 knots, beating 2004 Rolex Sydney to Hobart Line Honours winner Ludde Ingvalls's 90 footer to the finish.

Congratulations to David Ross, KukuKERchu and Patrick Pender, Signal 8. The two Ker 40s came second and third in IRC Division one. This adds another fantastic result to the list of accolades for global fleet of Ker Design and McConaghy built Ker 40s.

McConaghy Boats’ Jamie Thompson sailed on KukuKERchu :'It was a great race, we had good guys onboard including our trimmer from the Volvo Ocean Racing Team Camper and crew from the Kiwi teams Black Match and Waka Racing. The first night was survival conditions, reaching speeds of over 20 knots, the boat handled really well and we enjoyed some drag racing with the other Ker 40 Signal 8 and with Fling. If it wasn’t for damage to our kites we could have won, the boat just flies'
