Huge congratulations to “High Potential” who won the highly coveted Gold Roman Bowl, (1st overall) in the Cloudy Bay Round the Island Race on Saturday 7th July 2018. They endured some of the most challenging conditions on record for the 87th edition of the annual classic. With over 1200 yachts, average wind speeds of less than 5knots, strong Solent tides and no sea breeze, hundreds battled with the tough conditions.
An elated skipper said: “We are absolutely delighted with the result! It’s been an amazing day of sailing and this year, everything we did seemed to turn to gold with things ultimately turning in our favour”.
