Resolve Group Principal Consultant, Rob Lorden, helped crew Sir Peter Blake’s iconic Round the World yacht, Lion New Zealand on the annual Coastal Classic this past October. Regarded as one of the world’s iconic yacht races, it departs from Auckland’s Devonport Wharf and finishes at Russell Wharf in the Bay of Islands. This year, the stiff sou-westerly breeze resulted in numerous records being broken, the winning boat, Team Vodafone Sailing, taking a staggering 28 minutes off their previous race record, and setting a new time of just 5 hrs: 13 mins: 21 secs. Lion NZ finished in 11 hrs: 44 mins: 03 secs, and here you can see Rob (in the beanie) helping get the boat across the line.rob
