Raw Nerve Wins Fifth Gladstone Race

Raw Nerve has once again proven itself to be the fastest offshore yacht in Australia by taking out line honours for a record fifth time (four in a row) in the Brisbane to Gladstone Race, the longest running mulihull offshore race in the world; skippered by Martyn Riley with designer Stuart Bloomfield as navigator/helmsman. Finishing an hour and a half ahead of Ichi Ban, the monohull race winner and current Sydney to Hobart winner, the 56' catamaran maintained it's offshore racing record, not having been beaten accross the line in it's current configuration.
