MARK MILLS (IRL)
|Often the bridesmaid...
Finally in Porto Cervo
in September Andre
IRC 72-footer Alegre
captured its first Mini Maxi world title.
Mark Mills designs have actually had a
terrific time of it during 2014, winning
numerous big races around the world.
But a Maxi world championship does
not come easily, particularly when as a
designer you find yourself competing
against larger and very often more
heavily-resourced professional rivals|
|Why they won|
|‘From Mandrake all those years ago, he just keeps on producing
fantastic boats’ – Peter Morton; ‘Beautiful design and terrific
engineering’ – Keith Church; ‘Mark is the designer I have chosen
for my new boat!’ – Roberto Lacorte; ‘Millsy is a super nice guy and
with a brilliant brain’ – Brendan Foley; ‘The Mills 39 is one great
sports car of a boat!’ – Andrew McIrvine; ‘Surely he’s now a lead
contender for any campaign chasing a fast boat?’ – Dane Ralston;
‘Mark’s creativity has sparked some great designs’ – Tim Perrotti.|
