Team Bridge break multiple records around the Isle of Wight

Steph and Guy Bridge set four world records between during their attempt at foiling around the Isle of Wight

 

Three members of Team Bridge – Steph and her two sons Guy and Olly – set out to break the speed record for the circumnavigation of the Isle of Wight last month at a total distance of 50 nautical miles.

The team travelled at speeds of up to 25 knots to complete the course and Steph set two records as the outright fastest woman and fastest singlehanded female sailor around the island in just 3 hours, 3 minutes and 24 seconds. Guy, 16, came in just two seconds ahead of his older brother, Olly, in 2 hours, 32 minutes and 25 seconds and set two records in the process for the fastest time around Isle of Wight as a kitesurfer and as a singlehanded sailor.

Check out the highlight reel to see how they did it!
