Victoire de « Sunrise » JPK 1080 de Tom Kneen 2ème « Strait Dealer » JPK 10.10 de David Franks
« We’ve only had the boat for four weeks and she’s just astonishing – very very fast and in quite difficult conditions. »
« This is the first time I have won a yacht race – which is why we’re drinking at 1100! » enthused Sunrise’s skipper, Tom Kneen.
Despite a strong challenge from David Franks’ JPK 10.10 Strait Dealer, which claimed three bullets in five races, it was the newer, larger JPK 10.80 Sunrise that prevailed in IRC Three, winning today’s race.
