The pan-European crew, skippered by Jochen Schümann, add Rolex Fastnet success to a glittering array of line honours victories including at the Giraglia Rolex Cup (2010, ’11, ‘12) and Rolex Middle Sea Race (2010, ’11, ’12).

The current Rolex Fastnet Race monohull race record remains the time set by the Ian Walker-skippered Abu Dhabi (UAE) in 2011: 42 hours, 39 minutes.
