ROLEX Fastnet Race: CONCISE 10 first to finish; DONGFENG leads VO65s around the rock – gallery of Carlo Borlenghi photos

Tuesday, August 8, 2017

PLYMOUTH, GBR – Unchallenged, CONCISE 10 blazed into Plymouth this morning, first boat home in the 47th Rolex Fastnet Race. Tony Lawson’s MOD70 trimaran crossed the finish line off Plymouth breakwater at 05:55:00 BST with a race time of 42 hours and 55 minutes. This time didn’t come close to the overall multihull record for the Rolex Fastnet Race but it was still respectable considering they sailed upwind all the way to the Fastnet Rock. Dockside at Plymouth Yacht Haven, a beaming Tony Lawson commented, “To take the record for the Round the Island Race just a few weeks ago and then this… they deserve it, they have sailed well. Everyone thinks multihulls can’t go to weather, but we led three state of the art monohulls around the Rock by about 100 miles and we led them into Plymouth by 200 miles. So if you want to go fast you have to get yourself a multihull!”  –ROLEX Fastnet Race press release early today (Tuesday). Full story.
