CONGRATULATIONS are in order to Rougemont’s managing director who completed the Royal Ocean Racing Club’s (RORC) Transatlantic Race from Marina Lanzarote to Port Louis Marina, Grenada.
Aiming for a new transatlantic world record and race victory, Mr Craven joined as one of eight guests alongside a professional crew aboard Leopard, an internationally renowned, record breaking, 100ft, Super Maxi yacht.
Leopard crossed the finish line of the RORC Transatlantic Race this morning at 07h 22m 37s GMT taking the line honours in the monohull class. It will be another couple of days before the overall RORC Transatlantic Race trophy winner is announced, with the best corrected time under IRC.
A great achievement by all and Mr Craven commented: “It was an amazing experience and whilst we are naturally disappointed not to break the world record, crossing the line first after such tough conditions is fantastic.”
