It’s a wrap – review of the Brewin Dolphin Commodores’ Cup: France victorious


Lire l'article en Français: La France remporte la Brewin Dolphin Commodores' Cup

The reason why the Brewin Dolphin Commodores' Cup stands as a pinnacle event within the Royal Ocean Racing Club's sizeable calendar was made abundantly evident during its 13th running in late July.

The club's biennial flagship event for three boat teams with Corinthian crews is a supreme test, held on the navigationally complex waters of the Solent and the Channel, and featuring a range of race courses - windward-leewards, round the cans, an overnight offshore race and a race around the Isle of Wight, that on this occasion took place in sun and a 20-25 knot southwesterly.

RORC Channel Race - Shakti takes the spoils

Avenarius & Gorm Gondesen's German Ker 46 Shakti - photo Paul WyethAvenarius & Gorm Gondesen's German Ker 46 Shakti was the overall winner of the RORC Channel Race. Tony Lawson was on board his MOD 70 Concise 10 for a blast around the 125 mile course, in just 9 hours 15 mins and 54 Secs and was first boat home. Harm Prins' Volvo 70 Sanya Lan took monohull line honours in just under 12 hours. Shakti's overall win gives the German team just under an 11 point advantage over Tonnerre 4 in IRC Zero for the RORC Season's Points Championship. Tonnerre fell behind early in the race, as the leading boats past through Hurst Narrows and try as the Dutch team might, they could not catch their German rivals.
