Ned Collier-Wakefield’s MOD-70 Concise finally took one away from the all-conquering Phaedo, beating the incredible Round The Island record the green boat set last year by just 1 minute over the 50 mile course (Phaedo is busy getting ready for the ORMA/MOD showdown in this month’s Transpac).  Concise’s time of 2:22 (with a top recorded speed of 44 knots!) nearly halves the leading monohull’s 4-plus hours in a near-perfect multihull breeze – a breeze that got even the slowest boat in the huge 1342-boat fleet moving well in England’s signature regatta.

This event is so big that it’s got a 69-page results book, and you can dig into the details here.  Photo from Mark Lloyd/Team Concise.  If you hated watching those overgrown beach cats in Bermuda and lament the loss of multihull racing from ‘the pinnacle’ of the sport, you’ll absolutely love this completely free, Matt Sheahan-commentated, nearly 5-hour long broadcast from the starting line of the RTI.

The Corby 36 Ino went down on Saturday in the Solent after a collision with the cruising boat Valkyrie, with all seven crew safe and sound.   Fresh from a full refit a year ago and a a remasting over the winter after losing her rig at the end of last season, the boat that dominated as Inga From Sweden under skipper Richard Goranson is now very wet.  Updates over at Reddit (where we stole this photo from), with more photos in the SA Forums.

With the Youtube video approaching a million views (making it one of the most-viewed sailing videos in the history of the interwebs), a Southampton magistrate yesterday dropped a cool £100,000 penalty on navy officer Roland Wilson for breaking three COLREGS requirements before scratching the Hanne Knutsen’s anchor.  (1) He failed to keep an adequate lookout, (2) he impeded a large vessel in a narrow channel, and (3) he impeded a vessel constrained by his draft.

The 100k (called ‘costs’ by the court) will likely be covered by Wilson’s insurance policy, but he’ll still need to come up with  another 3 grand in fines.  Wanna know more, or do you know more?  Hit the thread.  And before your next regatta in a TSS zone, you might want to read up on How To Avoid Huge Ships.
