RTI Record - What a difference a minute makes!

Flying start from the MOD70 Concise 10 in the Round the Island Race. Crossing the line after 2 hours 22 minutes and 23 seconds means they beat Phaedo3's record by exactly one minute!

Friday evening nobody thought that the course record set by another MOD70, Phaedo3, last year would fall.

But their fast time to the Needles and rapid progress down the back of the Island set them up for a solid time.

Then favourable winds allowed them to make the finish line on one tack, setting up a last gasp dash to the finish line.

Congratulations to skipper Ned Collier-Wakefield and his team.
