Wow! What a race, definitely one for the “bucket list”, the Round the Island Race.
I think I “picked” the year to do it too, with plenty of breeze on, and plenty of action on board the winning First 40 La Reponse (you can find two live broadcasts from on board via Facebook below) as well as following the record-breaking win of the Mod 70 Phaedo 3.
Check out the video, which includes on board footage, interviews and a boat tour with the Phaedo 3 team thanks to Toby Palfrey, drone footage with thanks to Carkeek Design Partners and my own reflections on doing the race!
A big thanks to the La Reponse team for having me, we definitely didn’t think we were in the box seat, but managed to take home the First 40 division! Thanks for a great day sailing around the Isle of Wight xx
Thanks also to Zhik Store Cowes for their continual support to adventure in this part of the world. I have never been so warm during an offshore race! Isotek 2 is the bomb adventurers!
