From the starting line in Lanzarote, Spain, to the finish 3,000 miles away in Port Louis, Grenada, teams were challenged to the fullest on their journey across the Atlantic Ocean. In this years edition, our clients set the bar high. Supermaxi My Song was the first boat to finish the race, setting a new monohull race record. Cookson 50 Kuka3 not only won in their class, but also won overall, claiming the 2018 RORC Transatlantic race trophy for best corrected finish time – and overcoming a fire onboard prior to the finish!
