The 2016 SORC Round the Rock Race took place from the 2nd to the 7th of July 2016, with 13 SUN FASTs among the 46 sailboats that entered. This race takes place every 2 years and is known for its very dangerous course.
This year, the crews faced unfavourable winds, from 35 knots, and waves of nearly 3 metres… it was a race for the books.
The challenge was met by the SUN FAST 3200 skippered by Pierrick PENVEN, who took 3rd place in the overall standings across all classes of IRC.
We would also like to congratulate the 4 SUN FAST 3600s that took the first 4 places in the IRC Category 1:
- 1st place: “Bellino,” SUN FAST 3600 skippered by Rob Craigie
- 2nd place: “Game On,” SUN FAST 3600 skippered by Ian Hoddle
- 3rd place: “Mister Lucky,” SUN FAST 3600, skippered by Mark Hipgrave
- 4th place: “Bam,” SUN FAST 3600 skippered by Conor Fogerty
“Bravo” to all the SUN FAST crews! We look forward to seeing you again in 2018!
