JP Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race 2013-14 - Today saw one of the slowest JP Morgan Asset Management Round the Island races in recent years with the fleet almost at a standstill as they rounded the Needles and the wind slipped away.

This year was a polar opposite of last year’s record breaking year with new records being set in both the Monohull and Multihull and the first sub three hour time being set.
