Colin MacRae - rebuilding a hurricane damaged Lagoon 450 catamaran.
Play • 43 min

Parlay Revival is a story about a young man from New Zealand, Colin, who spend's his life savings from a 10 year career as a Super yacht engineer, to buy a Lagoon catamaran that was badly damaged and partially sunk during Hurricane Irma and repair it in Guatemala. 

With friends from all over the world they spent months fixing her up, to get her to sail around the world. The next mission was to sail across the Pacific from the Caribbean to New Zealand to make it to Auckland, Colin's home town, in time for the America's Cup, but the plans come unstuck as Covid-19 shuts down access to the Pacific Islands and the crew find themselves anchored up in Panama.
