Hanse comes 2nd in Round the Island !


White Mischief, Hanse 291, just gets better and better. This year’s result, coming in at 2ND OVERALL in IRC, is the best result ever for the mighty Hanse Yacht 291, owned and skippered by our very own Andy Hind, proud owner of the 2014 Silver Roman Bowl & JPMAM Salver & Methuselah Trophy.

Andy and his crew had to work hard to find the wind out there on this year’s race which was a real endurance test at times, with periods of very light airs and even zero knots. Plenty of boats retired so it’s a big achievement to White Mischief and all the others who finished the race. The speedy Hanse 291 who is now 21 years old, came in at 9h:26m:34s corrected time.

There were 30 Hanses who participated in the 2014 JP Morgan Asset Management Round the Island race. A very special congrats too goes to Raspberry Ripple, Hanse Yacht 342, who came first in class ISC 6A on 10h:55m:04s & finished 16th overall in ISC. 

The following Hanses all came in the top 10 of their class:
Banyan, 371
Hobo, 301
High Flyer, 470e
Fizz, 370
Mucky Duck, 375
To Me to You, 470
