Roy Disney's Reichel-Pugh maxi
shattered the Newport Bermuda Race record. The sled finished the 635 mile ocean racing classic at 19:54:22 EDT with an unofficial elapsed time of 53hrs 39min 22sec. This cuts 3hrs 52min 28sec off the previous record of 57hr:31min:50sec set in 1996 by George Coumantaros' maxi
crossed the line a close second at 20:17:44 also breaking her own record as well.
Roy Disney's 75ft
revelled in 2030 knot southwesterly winds, power reaching at 14 knots directly for Bermuda's St David's Lighthouse Sunday morning, her crew hopeful of finishing by 5:30 pm EDT or earlier! Light winds slowed her progress but the record still fell.
