Tilmar Hansens new yacht Outsider was christened in Auckland this week by his wife Eveline. Outsider, superbly built by Salthouse Boatbuilders was completed earlier than expected giving Hansen and crew an opportunity to visit New Zealand and compete in the Bay of Islands regatta. Competing against a fleet including several other new yachts in fifty foot range the new Elliott 52 went from strength to strength winning four of the six races on the line. Outsider finished 1st on PHRF and 1st on General Handicap. Outsider will continue sea trials in NZ before being shipped to the US to compete in the Newport to Hamburg Blue Water Classic in June.
