Peter Cunningham’s PowerPlay Racing

PowerPlay Racing was formed in the fall 2010 when Peter Cunningham sold his company and decided to do some serious sail boat racing. 

Tony Rey became the PowerPlay guide and inspiration at this time.

PowerPlay was the name Peter chose for his team back in the 1980’s when he owned and raced a J29 on the San Francisco Bay. 

Power – We want to be very competitive

Play – Whilst having fun!

MOD 70 PowerPlay,
the record breaking trimaran adds a new dimension to Peter Cunningham’s series of race boats.

The new MOD 70 crew, project managed by Ned Collier Wakefield, brings together a vast amount of offshore multihull experience from a range of different boats.

One of the fastest offshore racing boats in the world – meet PowerPlay. The Multi One Design 70 Trimaran offers premier ocean racing to the world’s best sailors.
MOD 70 was originally intended as a one design class penned to replace the successful ORMA 60s. Equally well suited to MOCRA racing and breaking speed records these high tech carbon fiber machines leave little to the imagination. With curved ‘C’ style daggerboards and canting rigs these boats are both faster and safer than their predecessors. With maximum speeds of up to 40 knots and full ocean racing capabilities, the MOD 70 is a force to be reckoned with.
