and Team EBS Yachting completed their first international
sailing event earlier today when they crossed the finish
line off The Needles in the United Kingdom to complete
the Rolex Transatlantic Challenge at 00:35.08 on Thursday
June 2nd , 5 hours 17 minutes 28 sec behind Mari-Cha
IV who took line honors.
Maximus had previously passed
the Lizard at 13:18:55UTC, 3 hours 13 minutes and
32 seconds after Mari-Cha IV to complete the first
of what was ultimately a two part race. The lizard
gate marked the record point where until yesterday
marked Charlie Barr’s record of 12 days 04 hours
01 minute and 19 seconds that had stood for 100 years.
Maximus also came home ahead of the historic record
making the transatlantic crossing almost 57 hours
quicker than Charlie Barr and Atlantic in 1905.
