The Dubai 2010 worlds are silently creeping up on us and time is flying by. We anticipate having several Assassins attending the worlds with several top sailors aiming for a podium finish. Olympian Andrew Brown is kicking off his campaign by putting an unofficial entry into an endurance race up the coast of New Zealand. Known as the Coastal Classic, the race starts in Auckland and ends 119miles up the coast in Russel, Bay of Islands. A team of three will be sailing the Assassin during the race, Andrew Brown, Chris Steele and 15yr old Sam Schofield. It will be a gruelling race and hopefully the weather will be kind enough to get a record finish. Andrew is our main on the water tester here in NZ, and has helped the Assassin evolve.
Over in Europe we have the current Olympic 49er Gold Medallist,Jonas Warrer, waiting patiently for his Assassin so to begin his training for the Dubai Worlds. There are also also several other world/Olympic and top mothies aiming to make a showing at the next worlds.
The delivery times for a new Assassin has been pushed out into early next year, so if your thinking about ordering a Assassin for the worlds it would pay to get in soon. At the moment there are 10 build spots available before the 2010 worlds.
