MAXIMUS the new Elliott Supermaxi won line honours in the Auckland to Tauranga race at Easter. Despite light winds and being becalmed for some time Maximus narrowly missed the race record time by 2 minutes 32 secs. The owners and team are thrilled with the performance and handling of the yacht which is now on route to Antigua for Race Week. Third monohull to finish was the new Elliott 50 SPORTIVO. Sportivo finished just one and a half hours behind the new 75 foot Beecom. Elliott 1050 GALEFORCE sailed a great race and was first overall on handicap. BUSHIDO an Elliott 16 metre cruising yacht was first TYPBC yacht on both line and handicap.
