Little Ship Club is proud to congratulate Club President Sir Robin Know-Johnston on his recent third place finish in his class in the singlehanded Route de Rhum. Sir Robin completed the race from St Malo to Guadeloupe in 20 days, travelling nearly 1000 miles longer than the direct route.

After the race, Sir Robin congratulated his competitiors, saying "there were three of us battling for the second and third spot. I got competitive and that was tiring. It came down to boat speed. She's a fast boat I've got. I managed to hold onto my lead but I couldn't beat Andrea Mura (who finished second) despite catching him up. I was beaten by two very good people. I congratulate Anne and Andrea."
