Drew Langdon and Miles Jennings steered their Mercury powered Outerlimits hull Silverline to more Cowes Torquay Cowes success today.
The pair from the West Country in England have won the event in 2018, 2019, 2021 and today using the same boat and engine combination.
They also set the course record speed last year, however, Langdon and Jennings encountered far more challenging conditions today and averaged 67.72 mph.
Finishing over 30 minutes later than Silverline were Team 25 Dragon (above) crewed by Rob Lockyer and Scott Younger.
Third was the veteran Cigarette hull, Dry Martini.
Nigel Hopcroft, Michael Peet and the man that keeps this machine in tip-top condition, Mike Bontoft were 23 minutes slower than Lockyer and Younger.
Uno Embassy finished fourth overall with Fugitive just 3 minutes behind.
Uno’s crew of Phil Morris, Gordon McMath, Jennifer Marsh and Chris Wright were ecstatic to finally start and finish a race in a season beset with issues.
Stuart Cureton and Francis Whitley have an enviable reliability rate in this race and took the Class 2 honors in Fugitive with Lee Ornsby, Ross Macgregor and Chris Drinkwater second in their Mercury powered Spectre hull.
Seventh overall, averaging 42.46 mph and the final finisher was the Belgium team of Biretta Due (Thomas Vandamme, Jean Pierre Neels and Marijke D’hondt).
