RORC – Tigris win IRC Two-Handed

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.


The RORC Transatlantic Race is part of the RORC Season’s Points Championship, the world’s largest offshore racing series. For more information about the RORC Transatlantic Race:
