Racing for Italian clothing giant ‘Fend’ in their 46 ft outerlimits Catamaran, powered by twin V12 Lamborghinis, Jennings was faster than anybody else in a boat capable of 150mph.
The win comes after a successful season of racing that also saw Jennings become American Champion in the American SB1 Super boat series, racing for Lucas Oil in the 50 ft Silverhook, powered by 2,500 HP mercury engines.
