LDV Comanche breaks another record

Launched in 2014 for serial yacht owner Jim Clark, Comanche has proven her racing pedigree many times over, winning Sydney Hobart 2015 and breaking the transatlantic monohull sailing record in summer 2016.

This continued at Rolex Sydney Hobart 2017, with new owner Jim Cooney at the helm of the renamed LDV Comanche. The Australian surrounded himself with an experienced team, including veteran navigator Stan Honey and America’s Cup star Jimmy Spithill. Together they set a new course record by crossing the finish line in one day, nine hours, 15 minutes and 24 seconds, shaving more than four hours off the previous record, set in 2016 by Perpetual Loyal.
