ICAP Maximus takes line honours by over 3 hours!

[ 25 / 07 / 2005 ]
ICAP Maximus takes line honours in the Channel Race beating the next competitor by over 3 hours!

Once again Maximus started off the Royal Yacht Squadron, Cowes, in drifting conditions and fortunately with an outgoing tide.

Boat speed respresented the speed of the tide as the entire fleet drifted east out past the forts and then bound for a series of marks over a 150 mile course in the English Channel and outside the Isle of Wight.

It took some five and a half hours to complete the first 30 miles. TP 52 Patches and Farr 52 Bear of Britain made the best of the light conditions and use of the current going over the shallows in places which Maximus could not cross.


However the breeze filled in gradually bringing some very pleasant sailing conditions of 12-18 knots and finished the race near Poole opposite the Needles and not far from Hearst Castle at 0122 hrs, an elapsed time of 16 hours & 22 minutes and an average speed of less than 10 knots.

Maximus performed well given the very light conditions for the first third of the race to have beaten the Farr 52 over the line by some 3 hours. Unfortunately, Bear of Britain beat Maximus by 3 minutes on corrected time and so our overall result was third.
