Skipper Sidney Gavignet, onboard navigator Damian Foxall and the crew of Musandam-Oman Sail, a MOD70 Trimaran crossed the finish line of the 2014 Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland Race off the Royal Yacht Squadron, Cowes at 12.42.36 BST on Thursday 14th August 2014 with an elapsed time of 3days 03hour 32minutes 36seconds. This breaks the previous World Record for a multihull held by Banque Populaire 5 in 2011, by 0hr 16m 38s and is subject to ratification by the World Speed Sailing Record Council.
Our Laser 4.7 coach Ben Lynch has also taken some time off to compete in the Race. He's aboard the Volvo 70 Monster Project.
