Cork - Fastnet - Cork UIM World Record
Time & Location
About the Event
Over the weekend of the 28th/31st August 2020, Officials from the BPANI will be available to oversee any Powerboat National or World Record attempt from Cork Harbour around Fastnet Rock and back to Cork Harbour. A total distance of 132.6 Statue miles /115.2 nautical miles or 213.4 Kilometers.
Presently the overall World record is held by the AllBlack Racing team who in June of 2018 completed the route in two hours, six minutes and 47 seconds (average speed 62.75 mph / 100.99 km/h), in moderate to rough Atlantic conditions.
To honour this fact, the Powerboat association of Ireland commissioned a Trophy which is held in trust by the Royal Cork Yacht Club. This trophy which has been named the FPT Allblack Trophy will be awarded to the racing team who set a UIM World record on the UIM “Cork-Fastnet- Cork” Long Distance Record Course. To achieve a UIM World record can be a daunting task but our team of officials are here to help you.
