Mini Transat Winner and 2018 Round Ireland Yacht Race contestant Ian Lipinski has set a Round Britain solo record.

On Friday, 10 July, the Class40 Credit Mutuel skipper crossed the virtual finish line by crossing Cape Lizard, to set this new racing record of 7 days 17 hours, 50 minutes and 48 seconds (subject to verification).

Lipinski broke the record set by Phil Sharp in the Race Around Britain and Ireland race in 2018 by 10 hours 24 minutes and 1 second.

More on this record from Sail Web here.

As regular Afloat readers will know, Lipinski co-skippered a brand new Mach 40 'Corum in the 2018 Round Ireland and got off to a stunning start off Wicklow Head two years ago.

French Class 40 boats are returning to the Irish race track for August's 700-miler too.
