Brett Burvill & Max Puttman dominate 2024 Worrell 1000

By winning 11 of the 12 sailed legs of the 2024 Worrell 1000, Brett Burvill & Max Puttman, reigning Raid World Champions, have once again demonstrated their mastery in F18 long distance racing, based on a high preparation level of their Edge, powered by Next Gen sails, they know at their fingertips, being respectively builder and sailmaker of the boat.

Excellent performance also for their team mates of Australia 2, Pete & Bailey Skewes, also sailing an Edge, scoring two second and three third places.

Podium is completed by French/US pair Emmanuel Boulogne/Mathieu Marfaing, completing the race in 93 hours, 35 minutes and 13 seconds on their Cirrus 901.

It is then to notice that Randy Smith & Dalton Tebo (Team Rudees), finishing fourth, have won leg Atlantic Beach to Ocracoke, the only one escaping to Burvill/Puttman.
