Purple Mist celebrate in Grenada
An amazing achievement for the first Two-Handed all-female team to complete the RORC Transatlantic Race! Congratulations to Kate Cope and Claire Dresser on Sun Fast 3200 Purple Mist (GBR) after crossing the finish line in Grenada on 29th January at 02:36:10 UTC, in an elapsed time of 20 days 12hrs 26 mins.
Dockside at Camper & Nicholsons Port Louis Marina, Kate Cope said: “I’m really proud. In a way, I knew I could do it. Getting to the start is one of the hardest things and everybody says that. I just hope that us doing this race will inspire other doublehanders to do it. You learn a lot about yourself and it’s an amazing experience.” Claire Dresser: “I feel so happy, I can’t believe that we’ve actually done it. Now that I’m here it’s quite emotional and it’s an incredible experience.”
