New Sailing Record for “Around Jamestown” Challenge
July 8, 2015
Jamestown Press: A new outright record and time to beat was set Saturday [July 4] for the Around Jamestown Record. New Mexican Lloyd Thornburg helmed Phaedo3 around Jamestown with an elapsed time of 56 minutes and 36 seconds, besting the previous record by one minute, 55 seconds.
The record-setting crew included Brian Thompson, Miles Seddon, Sam Goodchild, Warren Fitzgerald, Sam Bason and Pete Cumming. They chose to sail the course around the island to starboard, sailing south from the start off Fort Adams at 5:29 p.m. on an easterly breeze ranging from 10 to 15 knots on the start of an ebbing tide.
