IRC Overall Decided For 20th San Fernando Race
Published: Wednesday, 08 April 2015
Ray Roberts OneSails Racing is confirmed as the IRC Overall winner of the rerouted San Fernando Race 2015 after a 330 nautical mile challenge.
“Pleasant conditions but tactically very difficult because of the challenging weather,” says Roberts. The TP52 was just 21 minutes away from “doing the double” and claiming line honours, but had to cede that title to Antipodes.
The remaining boats in the fleet still had their own divisional honours to contest, with Ambush claiming IRC Racer 1 and Whiskey Jack annihilating the opposition in IRC Racer 2, winning on the water and with nearly six hours to spare on corrected time. Xena performed the same feat in IRC Premier, beating Sea Monkey into second place by over eight hours on corrected time.
In IRC Cruising, although Bernd Hanemann’s Crystal took divisional line honours, Eric Doguet’s XC-35, Ex Libris claimed the silverware on IRC.
Prize giving took place April 4 on the main lawn at RHYC Kellett Island.
