Louis Goor's Royal Irish Yacht Club Oyster 575 Irene III finished the 935–mile Antigua Bermuda race on Monday morning after just under five days at sea writes Louay Habib
The Irish team in the race are mostly from County Wicklow.
"This is a great race for the boat. Irene III is made for reaching in the ocean and we have had a marvellous time on board," smiled Goor. "Whilst some of the teams racing have been eating astronaut food, we have had enjoyed great meals as two of the crew are excellent chefs, and the Bordeaux on board was superb! This is a wonderful way to sail to Bermuda.
"My father will be taking her back across the Atlantic to our home port of Mallorca and for us this is a two-year cycle. We would love to compete again in 2020" Goor told Afloat.ie
