Home » Transatlantic Race 2015, Start 3

The Transatlantic Race 2015 is a 2,800-mile race from Newport, R.I., to The Lizard on the southwestern corner of England. This is the 30th transatlantic race since three New York Yacht Club members sponsored the first one in 1866. A fleet of 38 boats—ranging in size from 40 to 140 feet and in age from 100 years to 10 months—departed from Newport in one of three different starts (June 28, July 1 and July 5). Start 3 includes four of the fastest ocean racing yachts on the planet, including the new super maxis Comanche, owned by Jim & Kirsty Clark and skippered by Ken Read, and Rambler 88, owned and skippered by George David, as well as two trimarans, Phaedo3 and Paradox. All four sailed out of Newport in ideal conditions, quickly touching more than 20 knots of speed under bright sunshine. #tr2015
