Cowes Week day 6 - Black & White Group results

The first start Thursday was for the Artemis Challenge in which two state of the art multihulls, Lloyd Thornburg’s MOD70 Phaedo 3 and the M32 Tranwall, headed off for what they hoped would be a record-breaking blast around the Isle of Wight.

Phaedo powered up her rig 15 seconds before the start and accelerated rapidly, with her central hull already starting to lift clear of the water as the gun fired.

The giant trimaran flew around most of the course but was slowed when she had to tack up the eastern Solent, eventually finishing in a time of almost exactly three hours.

However, it was almost 40 minutes outside the outright record set by legendary French sailor Michel Desjoyeaux in the same boat four years ago.
