RORC Transatlantic Race - Organised by the Royal Ocean Racing Club in association with the International Maxi Association & Yacht Club de France
IRC Two-Handed Tigris gets the job done - Includes onboard footage and interviews dockside with Gavin Howe and Maggie Adamson in Grenada
Gavin Howe and Maggie Adamson, racing Sun Fast 3600 Tigris (GBR), won IRC Two-Handed in the RORC Transatlantic Race after hand steering without the use of an autopilot for over 2,000 miles.
Racing double handed across the Atlantic adds an extra dimension to the RORC Transatlantic Race. Just like the fully crewed teams, it requires meticulous planning and preparation before the race, and mental and physical toughness during the marathon. However, when problems occur, as they always will, a two-handed team is short on the invaluable resource of crew.
