Team Magic Marine of Carolijn Brouwer and Wouter Samama took the overall victory at the 2012 Zwitserleven Round Texel Race. She won on corrected time and makes a place in history as the first female helm in its 35 year history to win the Worlds Largest Catamaran Race.
Texel delivered some interesting weather but the organizers stayed smart and made a bold change to move the race to Sunday. This decision couldn't have been better. The breeze Sunday was "absolutely fabulous" said Brouwer. The average time was 3 hours 40 minutes for the 250 boats which opted to stay and compete on Sunday.
Brouwer was racing a C2 Catamaran one of the Australian brand (AHPC) boats which her company 2B Sailing distributes in Europe. For more info www.roundtexel.com
