Sailing Logic wins RORC IRC 2 Series!

There is still race one race left in the RORC race calendar, but Sailing Logic's Reflex 38 Visit Malta Puma already has secured enough points so that we can't be beaten! James 'Chippie' Gair skippered Visit Malta Puma in all her offshore races this season - and excellent results in the RORC Cervantes Cup and the challenging Round Ireland Race (which carries a 1.5 points factor) certainly helped secure the victory. After a lot of punching numbers in to calculators, it has been confirmed that the second placed yacht, the First 40 La Reponse can't secure enough points to overtake Visit Malta Puma.

The crew were obviously delighted to hear the news "Woop woop! Great stuff, bring on Fastnet 2013!" commented Chippie and "Yipppeeee!" from Simon!

The Round Ireland race team of Chippie and first mate Leanna, Barry, Alastair, Rob, Rosta, Simon P, Simon G, Tim and last-minute recruit 'Cheese' had never raced together before their first training weekend in April this year. Most of the crew had previous offshore race experience, Rosta and Barry had already raced in our RORC Caribbean 600 earlier in the year and Alastair and Simon had competed in our Fastnet 2011 campaign. This was Chippie's first campaign for Sailing Logic and he has proved himself an exceptionally capable and very popular skipper.

The Emily Verger Plate, awarded for the highest placed yacht based on the best 4 races in the RORC series will be presented to Sailing Logic at the annual RORC Prize Giving Dinner on November. Details of the evening will be released soon, but we'd love you to come and celebrate with us!  

Well done Visit Malta Puma, Chippie and all who have raced on her this year!
