RSB Rig Pro managing director Steve Branagh was part of the Round the Island Race winning team onboard Velsheda this weekend. The crew assembled in Portsmouth prior to the event for two full days of training before the 0500 start on Saturday morning.
'The light downwind start and run to the Needles was not ideal for us' commented Steve, 'however once we turned the corner and started the upwind work around the back of the island in the building breeze we were able to gain time on the TP52'2 and larger race boats. To come home as the second monohull only thirty five minutes behind Leopard was quite an achievement, the boat and crew performed very well and deserved the overall win in Class 0.'
RSB supplied the full running rigging package for Velsheda and are very happy to be part of the ongoing Velsheda success story.
