Steven Eversley and Brandon Franks won the Rubis Around the Island Race in Bermuda yesterday.
Their Mercury powered Ocke Mannerfelt built and designed hull completed the course in just over 43 minutes.
The annual Classic Offshore race in Bermuda was sponsored by Rubis Energy which included a $7000 prize pot for competitors.
Vice Commodore of the Bermuda Power Boat Association and Powerboat Racing World’s Bermuda correspondent, Kim McCallan had a high speed flip in her D Class Skater cat during the race.
We are looking forward to Kim’s report and in equal measure wishing her a very speedy recovery.
