Race for the Record: Flat out for Tuskar

15th October 2009

5.10pm With exactly three hours to go to equal the record the RIB is off Gorey, Co. Wexford. Time keeper Denis Dillon of the Irish Sailing Association says 'only minutes either way' will decide whether Philip Fitzgibbon and Mike Shanahan reclaim their Round Ireland Powerboat Record this evening. Much depends on the sea state off the Tuskar Rock and the conditions they meet when they turn west in approximately an hour from now. In order to equal the record set a month ago the Kerry pair must reach the Old Head of Kinsale by 8.10pm and 50 seconds. Race on!
