Peter McWhinnie & Paula Kirby’s JPK 1080 In Theory (USA) placed 1st in IRC 2 in this year’s Caribbean 600, adding to victories in 2020 and 2023 to complete a remarkable hattrick of class wins.

“This year’s race was unusual”, commented McWhinnie, “with a wind shutdown on Wednesday and Thursday impacting the smaller boats. The crew work was exceptional, we kept the boat moving – albeit at 1-1.5kn for long periods - and managed to protect our position until consistent wind finally returned on Friday”. In Theory’s crew of six included Com Crocker and Peter Fackler, Erin Mhley, Doug Lynn and Simon Karstoft.
