The 2013 Round the Island Race, held on 1 June, saw 1459 entries circumnavigate the Isle of Wight in ideal conditions. The fleet included several Doyle yachts, and once again the Doyle fleet had a great day on the water, with Leopard (sporting her brand new Doyle Stratis Main) and Hugo Boss first and second on the line.
Hugo Boss crossed the line fourth overall, and first in the Open 60 category, with a time of 04:12:01. In the Monohull category Mike Slade’s Leopard was first across the line, beating her own record by almost ten minutes, with a time of 03:43:50, and taking the Observer Trophy and JPMAM Trophy for First Monohull to finish.
Congratulations to all those who took part, particularly the 1323 finishers.
