About the event

 The Trophy will be awarded to the racing team who set a UIM World record on the UIM “Cork-Fastnet- Cork” Long Distance Record Course. These two landmarks are iconic for marine racing: Cork Harbour and the RCYC is the home of the world’s first ever International powerboat race, while Fastnet Rock is the World renowned iconic landmark known to all international offshore racers.  The launch of the FPT AllBlack Racing Trophy follows the Cork-Fastnet-Cork record breaking in June 2018. The AllBlack Racing team 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.  The Trophy was commissioned by the Powerboat Association of Ireland in recognition of the achievement of the AllBlack Racing team and its supporter FPT Industrial in breaking this Union Internationale Motonautique (UIM) long distance record. The Trophy will be held   in trust by the Royal Cork Yacht Club and it will be competed for in July 2020 for the first time, during the special occasion of the Yacht Club’s 300th anniversary celebration.  The history of the Royal Cork Yacht Club’s association with powerboat racing goes back to 1903. It hosted the first ever international powerboat race, in association with the Marine Motor Association, where teams competed for the world-renowned Harmsworth Trophy
