Just hours after Musandam Oman Sail, Phaedo and Concise all came in under the previous record for rounding Ireland by sail, George David smashed the monohull race record which has been held by Mike Slade in ICAP Leopard since 2008. Mike Slade managed it in just under 2 days and 17 hours: George David took just 2 days 2 hours 24 minutes and 9 seconds. And even managed to pose for the photographers before crossing the line!
Rambler has set a new record, taking Line Honours for multihulls and is looking good to win the race outright; what an achievement! Well done Rambler!
