750 nautical miles, over 4 days & across 3 countries.
This race pushed crews and their machines to the limit.
The Dyena Acceleration Recorder will provided information on the vessels position, performance and shock loads, supplying important data for research into effects of impact and vibration exposure. Accelerations are recorded alongside GPS data such as position, speed, heading and time, to provide a complete record of the race.
Dyena and Alpha Marine Consultancy collaborated to monitor Cinzano 558, providing daily updates of the vessels progress so that all race fans could share the experience as the crews of the ultra-endurance Venture Cup hammer across, through and sometimes under the waves in a brutal, bone-shaking marathon that often lasted more than 5 hours a day, every day, pushing men and their machines to the limit. Boats and crews alike experienced ankle-smashing and hull-snapping forces in excess of 30g, with hearts beating at 150+ bpm, hour after hour, wave after wave.
