Mount Gay Round Barbados Race Record Breakers Include a J/105

Squally winds reaching 30 knots from the northeast made for magical sleigh-ride, record-breaking conditions in the 82nd Mount Gay Round Barbados Race. While the lively conditions in big seas proved too much for many of the 34 entries in the 60nm sprint around the Island of Barbados, for others it couldn’t have been more thrilling. In total, seven records were broken – the largest ever number of records broken in the history of the event. The consistently fast local team on the J/105 Whistler with Peter Lewis on the helm, fresh from her CSA Racing Coastal Series overall win, took the CSA Record with a time of 6h 11m 40s.
