The day that Round the Island Race records tumbled

by Peta Stuart-Hunt on 3 Jun 2013
Sir Ben Ainslie on his way to breaking the Round the Island Record by over 15 minutes (2hrs 52 mins 15 secs) onboard J.P. Morgan BAR AC45. The win was dedicated to the memory of his friend Andrew ’Bart’ Simpson, who died in a sailing accident recently. A black ribbon with ’Bart’ in the middle were worn by the crew in his memory. onEdition © http://www.onEdition.com
In the Round the Island Race, Saturday 1st June was certainly a day to remember, a day of highs, and more highs and, it was a day for records to tumble. It was the day when Great Britain's most successful Olympic sailor, Sir Ben Ainslie and his all-British crew aboard J.P. Morgan BAR, trounced the existing Round the Island Race multihull record, held for 12 years, by an impressive 16 minutes.

In the monohull fleet the biggest boat in the IRC classes, Mike Slade's 100ft ICAP Leopard was not far behind. He crossed the finish line 40 minutes after Ainslie, shaving almost ten minutes off the monohull race record he had set back in 2008.

Title sponsor J.P. Morgan Asset Management, summed up their team's thoughts on the day. Jasper Berens, Head of UK, J.P. Morgan Assert Management, commented: 'It's so fantastic to be here and to raise such superb amounts for the Race charity, the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust. It was a vintage year in terms of weather and the racing and it was incredible to see so many happy, smiling faces in Cowes. The fact that Ben and his team on J.P. Morgan BAR achieved the Round the Island race multihull record, just topped it off. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year.'

On behalf of the Island Sailing Club, Dave Atkinson, Race Safety Officer, had little cause for concern during his long day that started at 0245 and finished at 2350. He commented: 'We had the least number of incidents to deal with for a very long time and nothing major occurred out on the water. The entire Race team, that numbers around 170 people on the day and ranged from spotters to results teams, cannot be praised highly enough.'


Today, Sunday 2nd June, wrapped everything up nicely with more great weather and the Race Prizegiving which was held at the Island Sailing Club where the Commodore Rod Nicholls was joined on stage by Corrie McQueen from J.P. Morgan Asset Management and Sir Robin Knox-Johnston to hand out the gold and silverware to the deserving prizewinners.

The most coveted prize, the Gold Roman Bowl and JPMAM Salver for First Overall IRC went to 5 West, the TP52 owned and helmed by Sir Keith Mills and Robert Greenhalgh.

The Silver Roman Bowl and JPMAM Salver for Second Overall IRC went to Pace and Johnny Vincent. The Observer Trophy and JPMAM Trophy for First Monohull to finish went to Mike Slade and ICAP Leopard.

Next year, the Race is held on Saturday 21st June and the Island Sailing Club.
