Mustafa Ingham has stated that he is humbled and honoured to compete with the elitist sailors of the world at Rolex Sydney Hobart Race that is supposed to start on the Boxing Day. The 21-year-old sailor is amongst the crew who will be competing with the Info Track Racing yacht. The Australian entrepreneur, Christian Beck is the owner of this yacht.
The 100-foot super-maxi by Beck had led to the victory in the race of 630 nautical miles from Sydney to Hobart under Perpetual Loyal in the year 2016. This is set the record time of a day and 13 hours, 31 mins, and 20 seconds. This had been broken in the next year by Comanche, the rival. Comanche and Info Track is Newport Bermuda Race’s former winner. Comanche is a holder of record of race that stands at 34:42:53.
Before the race, Ingham and these teammates have spent time knowing each other. He has said that the first two days, everyone had been becoming used to sailing with one another as the majority of them had just come from the Volvo Ocean Race competing with different teams. Thus, everyone was working to get on the same page. They had some breakages in the 1st week. However, now, everything is coming together and running smoothly.
