‘Concise 10’ crosses the finish line of the the 2017 Rolex Fastnet Race in 1st place, sailing into Plymouth at 05:55:00 BST on the 8th of August 2017, to complete the famous 600nm course in 42 hours and 55 minutes.
Brief comments on the dock from Jack Trigger – ‘What a fantastic race and fantastic way to round off what has been a successful season for us on this amazing boat. These machines are just another level of speed, and even though we have been mainly unchallenged around this course, we still pushed for every inch and are proud of our achievement.’
Big Thanks to Team Concise and the crew sailing alongside Jack Trigger, notably skipper Ned Collier Wakefield, the ‘fastest sailor on Earth’ Paul Larsen who holds the world speed sailing record at 65.45 knots and Olympic Gold medalist and Land Rover BAR tactician Giles Scott.
