21 January 2012 –German Marathon Offshore Powerboat racer Markus Hendricks will be the guest of honour at Raymarine’s World Premier Launch at boot Dusseldorf, taking place on Sat 21 Jan at 11.00 on Stand 11A42 in Halle 11.
Markus will be unveiling Raymarine’s new products, and describing how its technology has helped him and his team in the Ilmor powered Offshore Powerboat Cinzano 558 achieve international excellence. Notable races won by the team include the 2009 and 2011 Cowes Torquay Cowes race, and the 2010 Round Ireland race.  In 2009 Markus was the RYA National Marathon Class B Champion, in 2010 the team won the ISAF Powerboating Achievement of the Year award and for 2011 the team has won the RYA National Marathon Class B category as well as the 108 year old Harmsworth Trophy.
The race winning team comprises Markus Hendricks, Simon Wood-Power and Eric Smillie. Cinzano 558 is an open cockpit 11.5m (38 ‘) Don Shead-designed aluminium monhull, which has been fully equipped with Raymarine electronics since 2008.  The boat features two large screen multifunction displays, which are set for one to show engine data, and the other for navigational data.  There are two GPS 125 receivers on board, feeding vital positional data to the fully integrated system.  With the boat often travelling at speeds in excess of 128 kilometres per hour  (80 miles per hour) – her top speed is stated at 168 kph (104.5 mph) – it is imperative that data is quickly updated and easy to use and view in extreme conditions. 
Markus says the Raymarine equipment has proved more than capable of withstanding the incredibly harsh racing environment and its speed, accuracy and reliability has helped the team achieve its racing success.  In 2012, the team plan to compete in the RB12.com  Round Britain Air, Sea and Land marathon in Cinzano 558, some 1700 nm of racing!
Looking to the future, Hendricks is specifying electronics and navigation equipment from Raymarine’s new range for a new 55’ racing boat currently under construction.  He says, “The new boat is being launched in 2012, but we will not be racing her competitively until 2013.  I’m very keen to see the new Raymarine equipment available and look forward to talking about our experiences using Raymarine at boot Dusseldorf.
