Peter Harrison’s Maxi72 Sorcha dominates Les Voiles St-Barth.
Peter Harrison’s Sorcha led the Maxi 1 class at Les Voiles St Barth Richard Mille the entire way, followed by SHK Scallywag, the Dowell 100 skippered by David Witt and Ambersail, Saulius Pajarskas’ Volvo 65.
Not only did Sorcha win the class, they also bring home the Richard Mille Maxi Cup and win the coveted Richard Mille RM 60-01 watch.
“It was great having Peter and Pierre alternate driving,” said Andy Clark, Sorcha boat captain referring to Pierre Casiraghi, Monaco royalty and this year’s Les Voiles de St. Barth Richard Mille ambassador who joined the Sorcha team for the week as co-skipper.
Clark admitted the team was really looking forward to racing against the new Bella Mente to gauge the season. “But unfortunately, they had an issue with their mast and had to withdraw before racing began which was a real shame. Now we will wait until September to line up against them.”
Next for Sorcha is the Fastnet Race.
