Transfusion’s landslide NSW Farr 40 state title win - Winning Transfusion
Guido Belgiorno-Nettis’ Transfusion governed the Aberdeen Asset Management Farr 40 NSW State Title from the outset and after two final races on Sydney Harbour today was declared state champion in a landslide victory.

“We were pretty well into it on the scoresheet, we just needed to consolidate today,” admitted Belgiorno-Nettis. “Even though we didn’t take any bullets we sailed well in extremely difficult conditions with many opportunities for getting it right, and wrong.

“The team I’ve put together for the Rolex Farr 40 worlds have sailed with us on and off for years. I’d have to say it’s probably the best crew we’ve ever assembled.”

The challenge for Transfusion’s crew post the John Calvert-Jones nationals scheduled for 19-22 February, 2014, in Hobart is keeping the discipline and skills up throughout the Australian Farr 40 off-season. The Americans will be well into their summer season and racing right up to the 15-18 October event in San Francisco.
