Sailors' sights on record run

SEAN Langman's $2.2 million trimaran Team Australia is rocketing towards Tasmania today, hoping to be the fastest boat ever to sail from Sydney to Hobart.

With spray stinging their faces as the 60-foot trimaran battled heavy seas, Team Australia was airborne at times sailing down Australia's east coast yesterday.

The super-light speed machine set off at 11am in conditions which were nearly perfect for breaking the speed record for the 628-nautical mile passage.

The crew of seven, including Sydney yachtsman Langman and his 19-year-old son, Peter, reported winds of up to 44 knots in the first five hours.

Team Australia must cross the traditional Sydney-Hobart yacht race finish line on the Derwent by 11am today to make the passage in Langman's ultimate goal 24 hours.

Otherwise, they are aiming to beat the race record of six-time Sydney-Hobart line honours champion Wild Oats XI of one day, 18 hours, 23 minutes and 12 seconds.
