Jangada Too Finishes

In the middle of a thunderstorm and just before the heavens opened, Richard Palmer and Trevor Drew, sailed Jangada Too across the line at Castle Hill Light on 25th June 2012 at 0948 EST (1348 GMT) to complete the Two Handed Transatlantic Race (Twostar) 2012. Jangada Too was the first British boat home in a time of 22 days 2 hours and 48 minutes.

Under blue spinnaker with forked lightening flashing all around, Jangada Too was escorted across the line by a RIB provided by a member of the Newport Yacht Club, Tom Bandoni, with Norm Bailey (NYC & RWYC) and James Bremridge (Race Director) on board.

Despite a downpour, the Newport Yacht Club fired a cannon to salute the achievement of Richard and Trevor.
