Bronco Team sets AJ#1302DC7We dig what Junior and Julianna are doing with the Mount Gay Around Jamestown Record; a quirky little 19-mile Newport-area record they established last year.  What makes it different?  No real rules other than than the dates; if you’re the fastest when the May to October period ends, you win your body weight in rum.

It’s a fun record for fun people, and one of the most fun – hip hop gangsta and recent Melges 20 monster gun Johnny “Nugs” Goldsberry – helmed the Marstrom 32 Bronco to a brand new outright record earlier this week; just over an hour for the course.  Nugs says there’s a lot more in it.  ”I’m just waiting for the right time to take my Moth out there and finish this thing in a half hour” he said. Goldsberry had Tom and Jono Loughborough aboard as well as Tripp Burd and past SCOTW Emma Creighton on the hiking straps.

It took 21 people including VOR winner Moose Sanderson and 5 million dollars’ worth of re-masted Mini-Maxi to set the new monohull record for the same course on Wednesday; Hap Fauth’s Bella Mente took an hour and 20 on their run.

The Real Round

RMGC32Meanwhile, the granddaddy of all “round the islands” comes up in less than a week; the real Round The Island has been running since the 1930s and attracts over 1500 yachts and multihulls and more than 15,000 sailors to the 50 NM course around the Isle of Wight.  It’s one of the biggest sailing events on the planet, and this year, we’re putting our money on Paul Campbell-James at the helm of Pete Cumming’s Richard Mille GC32 Racing program to foil their way past Sir Ben Ainslie’s 2:52:15 RTI record on the AC45 last year.  Follow Pete, Paul, BAR Racing’s Nick Hutton, and up-and-comer Adam Piggot in their attempt on Twitter @RMGC32Sailing.
