2022 Sevenstar Round Britain & Ireland Race | Wrap Up

02.09.2022
Triumph through guile and determination. Organised by the Royal Ocean Racing Club every four years, the Sevenstar Round Britain & Ireland Race is one of the most challenging offshore races in the world. The 1,805-mile course includes some of the most notorious waters, including: the Celtic Sea, the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea. The 2022 edition was unusual in that high pressure dominated the weather for the race. This produced a highly changeable and complex weather scenario testing the 30 teams. While near gale force winds and big seas were experienced by just about every boat, this edition was notable for light airs racing. With wind speed ranging from zephyrs to near gale, using the IRC Rating Rule to determine the overall and class winners was an ideal measure. A race where guile and determination were the keys to a top performance. The IRC Rule uses fixed number time correction, meaning that competitors where aware of their ranking throughout the race and could formulate their strategy and tactics accordingly. The Sevenstar Round Britain & Ireland Race came to a thrilling climax on the 16th day when 10 boats finished within a 14-hour rush hour. Rob Craigie’s Sun Fast 3600 Bellino, racing Two-Handed with Deb Fish was the first of the pack, pipping Sam White & Sam North racing JPK 1080 Mzungu! to the line by just 10 minutes. Bellino set the best IRC corrected to beat for the boats that followed. In a dramatic final twist to an intense and highly complex race, the overall winner was decided by the thinnest of margins. After IRC time correction, Richard Palmer’s JPK 1010 Jangada, racing Two-Handed with Rupert Holmes won overall by seven minutes and nine seconds from Bellino, with Mzungu! third. In percentage terms Jangada won by just 0.03% in a race of 1,805 nautical miles over 16 days.

Bar Talk - Bellino & Mzungu! | Sevenstar Round Britain & Ireland Race

23.08.2022
In the 2022 Sevenstar Round Britain & Ireland Race the battle to be the first Two-Handed team to finish was extraordinary, with two teams in sight of each other for 15 days of match racing. Rob Craigie & Deb Fish racing Sun Fast 3600 Bellino was the first double-handed team to cross the line. After 1,805 miles of racing, JPK 1080 Mzungu! raced by Sam White & Sam North was just 10 minutes behind. The two teams have huge respect for each other and shared a beer or two, as well as their thoughts in the RORC Clubhouse in Cowes. #SRBIR #RORCracing

Monday's Arrivals | Sevenstar Round Britain & Ireland Race

22.08.2022
The Sevenstar Round Britain & Ireland Race came to a thrilling climax on the 16th day of the 1,805 nautical mile race. In a 14-hour flurry, 10 boats finished the race and a passionate dock party on Trinity Landing was followed by a hearty meal at the RORC Clubhouse in Cowes. Five boats are still racing but none of them can realistically better the IRC corrected time scored by JPK 1010 Jangada. The Royal Ocean Racing Club has declared Richard Palmer’s JPK 1010 Jangada, racing Two-Handed with Rupert Holmes, as the overall winner of the 2022 Sevenstar Round Britain & Ireland Race. #SRBIR #RORCracing Credits: Rockit/Tim Butt - Vertigo Films, Jangada, James Tomlinson, RORC/Corinna Haines

Welcome to Cowes for the start of the 2022 Sevenstar Round Britain & Ireland, we are live with all the pre-race build-up and starts for each class. First organised by the Royal Ocean Racing Club in 1976, the 1,805nm Sevenstar Round Britain & Ireland Race is a true marathon of epic proportions. Roughly three times longer than the Rolex Fastnet Race, the course sends the competing teams around a myriad of headlands with tidal strategies. Coupled with the notorious British and Irish weather, the Sevenstar Round Britain & Ireland Race is arguably the toughest pro-am race in the world. Every team that completes the challenge rightly deserves the admiration of any offshore sailor.
