Triple Jack Sets New Round Tortola Record

On Thursday April 30, trimaran Triple Jack and crew managed to take 6 minutes and 38 seconds off their existing Round Tortola record, rounding the island in 2 hours, 33 minutes and 40 seconds. It is Triple Jack’s third Round Tortola Record. Despite high hopes for optimal conditions with 15-20 knot winds from the SSE, winds were lighter than expected. Indeed, the winds softened for the important final leg from Soper’s Hole back to Nanny Cay after some unexpectedly big winds on the north side of Tortola.
