Super-charged Volvo 70 “HYPR” (ex-Camper, ex-Warrior) might well be sailing under a new name, but she’s certainly no stranger to the podium. Before receiving extensive performance-enhancing modifications in 2016 (modernising the keel and bulb, nearly a tonne of weight-loss as well as the addition of some trim tabs) she came 2nd in the 2011/12 Volvo Ocean Race as S/Y Camper.
After this podium finish in the Volvo Ocean Race, she was bought by the US Merchant Marine Academy Foundation and raced under the name “Warrior”. As Warrior the podiums kept coming and so did the records, including winning and smashing the course records for both Annapolis to Newport Race, and Antigua to Bermuda Race.
Now under her new name “HYPR” she will be campaigned hard to retain records, and smash a few more! Sailing on a pro/am basis, her core crew have been selected from some of the most successful Olympic, Americas Cup and Ocean Race sailors.
