Lloyd Thornburg, Owner/Skipper MOD70, Phaedo3 : « We weren't thinking about the record at any stage because we were so focused on match racing Concise. We had to dig deep and they were doing the same; they gave us a hell of a race!"
Ned Collier Wakefield, Skipper Concise 10 : « We did 600 miles in 31 hours and we are still in shorts and t-shirts – a bit damp, but it has been fantastic! These boats are absolutely incredible, amazing machines; to chew up the miles like that and be back for beers on the second day is unbelievable ! »
