Lloyd Thornburg’s Phaedo³ that’s co-skippered by Brian Thompson took even more time off its existing World Record for circumnavigating the Isle of Wight on August 20, 2016.
Now the Thornburg’s record-hungry trimaran holds both the World Record and Race Record that they set earlier this summer.
The boat itself held the old World record of 2 hours 21 minutes and 25 seconds, but that is when is was Foncia and being skippered bi Michel Desjoyeaux.
(Record still to be ratified by the WSSRC)
Crew onboard for the race: Brian Thompson, Miles Seddon, Robert Greenhalgh, Peter Greenhalgh, Pete Cumming, Sam Goodchild, Fletcher Kennedy, Justin Slattery. Onboard media; Rachel Fallon-Langdon
