9 – Team ACE: Daniel Ackermann (TriRaid 5.6)


Home-built TriRaid 560S trimaran designed by Klaus Metz. Readied for the R2AK with all safety gear and electronics. Square-topped fully battened main sail, working jib and Code 0. Using Hobie Mirage drive as auxiliary propulsion.

Adventurer by nature. Nothing spectacular like climbing Everest or crossing the North Pole solo. Parachutist, Open Water SCUBA, Bush Medic, amateur survivalist. Attempted 2019 R2AK, but broke boat rudder on first leg and pulled out.

Those 35kn winds were just too much. Making changes during the winter.
