2016 was a year when records tumbled.

The record time of 2:17:48:47, set in 2008 by Mike Slade in ICAP Leopard 3, was finally broken by George David in Rambler 88 who crossed the line in 2:02:24:09, a time which was so good he also took overall winner IRC. The last time a boat had taken both line honours and overall winner was 2010 when Dutch entrant Tonnerre de Breskins 3 (Piet Vroon) completed the double.

In the 2014 race, local WSC member David Ryan chartered Andy Budgen’s Volvo 70 Monster Project and came home first across the line.  However, Tanit (Richard Harris, Sydney 36) was overall winner. Green Dragon raced in 2012, and was first home, but the overall winner was Inis Mór, Ker 39, Bernard and Laurent Gouy.
