Epic win for INO XXX

INO XXX (RORC/Paul Wyeth)

RORC Myth of Malham Race
Saturday 26th May, 2017
Cowes – Eddystone – Solent (256 Miles)

Powerful thunderstorms, driving rain and wind speeds ranging from thirty knots to complete shutdowns provided epic conditions for the 256-mile RORC Myth of Malham Race. James Neville’s FAST40+ Ino XXX won the gruelling marathon, correcting out under IRC to take the overall win in the 140 boat fleet.

“Since we started racing in the FAST40+ Class, we are now miles apart from where we began as a team.” commented Ino XXX skipper, James Neville. “We have also made significant changes to the boat, which has really increased the rating quite a bit but also the performance. We thought that if we could bring the FAST40+ experience into the offshores, we could use that and it would pay off, and we are delighted. To be honest a lot of this race was upwind, and downwind is really our thing.” RORC Chief Executive, Eddie Warden Owen asked James Neville if Ino XXX could win the Rolex Fastnet? “I’d love to; we will give it a go; it is our main aim for the season. We will be racing to St. Malo and in the Channel Race to finish our qualification.”
