RORC - Pintia wins Cervantes Trophy

 
The overall winner of the 2018 Cervantes Trophy Race after IRC time correction is Gilles Fournier's French J/133 Pintia, winning the Cervantes Trophy for a third year in a row.

Thomas Kneen's brand new British JPK 11.80 Sunrise took second, after a close battle with the Army Sailing Association's X-41 British Soldier, third overall by just under five minutes.

47 yachts competed in the Cervantes Trophy Race, the first domestic race of the 2018 RORC Season's Points Championship.

The top three overall after IRC time correction are all yachts racing in IRC Two.

Edward Broadway's British Ker 40 Hooligan VII took Line Honours in an elapsed time of 25 hours 18 mins and 08 seconds.

In IRC One, Maxime de Mareuil's French Xp44 Orange Mecanix2 was the winner, Nick Angel's brand new British J/121 Rock Lobster was second and Mark Emerson's British A13 Phosphorus II, was third.

British yachts filled the podium in IRC Three and IRC Two Handed. In IRC Three, Ian Hoddle's Sunfast 3600 Game On had a fantastic result taking Line Honours and the win for IRC Three, and also winning the 17-strong IRC Two-Handed Class.

Second in IRC Three was Rob Cotterill's J/109 Mojo Risin', and third was Sunfast 3600 Jellyfish, sailed by Kevin Armstrong.
