    The NZ race has started and the tracker is now active on the Sail Noumea website. Team Voda is in the lead but conditions so far are not looking favourable for a new record.

    My apologies it looks like my previous post was in error Team Vodafone has set a new record time for the Auckland-Noumea race.

    from the article

    The Orma 60 trimaran took line honours in the Evolution Sails Sail Noumea race, arriving at 9pm (NZ time) to claim the multihull race record in 3 days, 6 hours, 59 minutes and 50 seconds. The former record of 4 days, 3 hours, 33 minutes and 22 seconds was set by Rogntudjuu in 2002.
