I took the weekend off from mini sailing and instead competed in one of the world’s oldest and biggest sailing regattas; The Round the Island Race.
Again teamed up with Ash Harris my co-skipper for the mini fastnet and the Archepelago race, we took a team from Herbert Smith, sailing to raise money for Water Aid, on this wild ride in some very tricky conditions.
It was an exciting day; windy with big seas and lots of boats losing control.
I am happy to report we were not one of them and we finished the race in 7h and 3 minutes to gain 3rd place in our division 1B.
A fantastic result for all.
