Leopard smashes record

ICAP Leopard, the Farr designed 100 foot super maxi yacht owned by Mike Slade, today smashed the Rolex Fastnet Race monohull record.

Sailing in brutal winds of up to 45 knots, which saw over 160 yachts retire from the race, ICAP Leopard completed the 608 mile course in just one day, 20 hours, 18 minutes and 53 seconds.

Beating the previous record by an incredible eight hours and 50 minutes, ICAP Leopard crossed the Rolex Fastnet Race finish line in Plymouth, UK, at 08:53:53 BST this morning.
