Association Round The Island Trophy

Congratulations to Steve Treadwell with his Dufour 34e Performance “Irene” for winning the Association RTI Trophy for being the highest placed finisher of our members. He was also placed first in the particular Division. In this year’s race every competitor was hampered by very light winds. Of the 1210 entrants just 283 managed to finish within the time limit so  a very creditable performance.
