Skandia Cowes Week IRC 2 update
Winning the IRC 2 Class on the opening day is a good indication of who will be challenging for honours during the rest of Skandia Cowes Week. This year it appears the Commodores’ Cup boats are all in top form.
Despite high expectations from Adam Gosling on his Corby 37 Yes! Murphy and Nye, it was Francois Goubau’s Beneteau First 47.7 Moana who were the winners of the day, taking the Vanduara Bowl trophy. Moana beat Stewart Hawthorn’s J/133 Jump on the water and on corrected time, finishing yesterday at 15:49:48 in 5h 37m 17s, with Jump just two minutes behind on corrected time.
