Atlantic Crossing 2017
While the regattas created a number of tests for Kialoa III – an Atlantic crossing allowed us to see how K3 would perform in a marathon under a variety of conditions. Beginning of January 2017 – Kialoa 3, with a crew of 7, set sail from Canary Islands towards St. Lucia. Over the span of 21 days, Kialoa went through a variety of weather conditions. Sailing trips like these tested both the boats endurance as well as those of the crew. Arriving in St. Lucia at the end of January, allowed the K3 Foundation to maintain, prepare and shift into racing mode for the upcoming Antigua Race Week 2017.
