Another Phantom 19G Around the Island success

John Moore on 13th August 2018

David Selley and Matthew Smith took an A-Class record Around the Island time and win in Bermuda yesterday.

The pair steered their Evinrude powered Phantom 19G to a time of 55 minutes and 11 seconds beating last year’s winner, Shaki Easton in a similar hull, by nearly a minute.

Phantom 19G hulls have already taken big wins this year, with Anton Modin’s UIM Gold Medal in the Class 3A European Championship in Smögen, Sweden and Jack Bobin’s Fortitudo Property Poole Bay 100 success in June.

Selley commented after:

I’m glad it’s over, that’s why we only do this race once a year!

It’s very tough on the equipment.

17 boats entered into 4 classes with 11 completing the course.
