2005 Rolex Transatlantic Challenge

Two of the world’s fastest racing monohulls are set to go head-to-head during the upcoming 2005 Rolex Transatlantic Challenge. The race starts May 21st off New York and after passing through a gate off The Lizard, finishes at The Needles, on the Isle of Wight, UK. Robert Miller’s 140-foot (43m) Mari-Cha IV may be a similar size to some of the giants in the Performance Cruiser class, but she differs in being an out-and-out racer, with a utilitarian interior free from any luxury.
