Congratulations go to Sir Ben Ainslie and his all-British crew aboard his AC 45 catamaran J.P. Morgan BAR, from Solent Refit, the preparation base for the catamaran challenge.
Their craft trounced the existing Round the Island Race multihull record, which had stood for 12 years, by an impressive 16 minutes, finishing in 2 hours and 52 minutes across the course.
The previous multihull Race record was held by offshore legend Francis Joyon, who completed the 50 nautical mile 2001 course in just 188 minutes.
