18’ Hobie Tiger sets overall around Jamestown Record

'New Around Jamestown Record Holders Dan Flanigan and Max Kramers - Around Jamestown Record'    Julianna Barbieri    Click Here to view large photo

A new record was set for the Around Jamestown Record today. Dan Flanigan and Max Kramers sailed their 18 foot Hobie Tiger around Jamestown with an elapsed time of 1 hour 47 minutes and 24 seconds. The team chose to sail the course in a clockwise direction with 17 knots of wind in a northwesterly on an ebb tide.

In addition to setting the outright record, Flanigan and Kramers also now hold the record for the ‘All Other Sailing Craft Division’. If by October 31st, no other team in any division bests Flanigan and Kramer’s elapsed time, they will own the Around Jamestown Record and Skipper Dan Flanigan will win his weight in Mount Gay Rum.

The Around Jamestown Record, presented in association with Café Zelda, Mount Gay Rum and Doublecross Vodka is a perpetual all out record for sailing around Conanicut Island (also known as Jamestown) in lower Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island.

Similar to other outright speed records, contenders will decide when they to make a record attempt and also the direction in which they will sail around Jamestown. This means contenders can choose the most advantageous weather conditions and tidal flow in which to attempt the record.

Four categories of sailing boats will be recognized to vie for divisional honors with the overall perpetual trophy going to the boat with the outright fastest time.

The four divisions recognized are:
• Monohull keel boats greater than or equal to 50 feet
• Monohull keel boats less than 50 feet
• Mulithull boats greater than 20 feet
• All other sailing craft

The record will be open during the summer months from Memorial Day, May 28th, 2012 until October 31st, 2012 during the hours of daylight. The yacht that wins the outright record will be awarded Mount Gay Rum equal to the Skipper’s weight.
