B&G tops the Fastnet podium

B&G-equipped yachts take the top spots in Line Honours and Overall in IRC. 

The winning choice

We were delighted to see B&G-equipped boats do well throughout the 400-strong fleet in the Rolex Fastnet race. With conditions that varied from calms to downwind sleigh rides, B&G-equipped yachts were able to use their onboard electronics to stay in complete control. Our electronics were to be found on boats from line honours monohull, Rambler 88 to Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300 Fastrak XII in IRC 3.

This video from Yachting World shows the B&G setup on IMOCA 60 Charal.
