Some wins are just more impressive than others. Double handed, overall Fastnet win with your Dad/Son? It could not possibly get any better than that!
For the first time in its 88 year history, the Rolex Fastnet Race has been won by a doublehanded crew. The father and son team of Pascal and Alexis Loison from Cherbourg, France on the JPK 10.10, Night and Day, arrived at 07:19:57 BST this morning making their elapsed time 3 days 18 hours 29 minutes and 57 seconds for the 611 mile race.
Winning the overall IRC prize in the Rolex Fastnet Race means that Pascal Alexis Loisin will receive the Fastnet Challenge Cup as well as a Rolex Chronograph. Full results here and thanks to Kurt Arrigo for the photo.
