    80th Anniversary Round Barbados Race

    Not often, if at all, that a windsurfer gets mentioned in the yachting press when competing in an international fleet of cats and yachts, some of them surely costing well into the millions, but a local (to Barbados, not Epsom) windsurfer has done just that, knocking over 2 hours off his previous record circumnavigation record and taking just over 5h 30m to do the 60 odd mile course.

    That's about the same distance as the round the Isle of Wight race but maybe not as gruelling as he seems to have been wearing shorts, a tee shirt and baseball cap !

    Read the write up here on the Yachts and Yachting website:

    Nice one Trevor !

    Cheers
