Charles Dunstone’s latest boat out in the Solent taken from on board Colm Barringtons Ker 50, Magic Glove, full report out in Irish Magazine Afloat.

Red is competing in the Fortis IRC Championships organised by the RORC on the 9-11th June,Never before have two TP52s come head to head in the Solent, but that is about to change, as Benny Kelly’s Panthera and Charles Dunstone’s Red are both entered for the regatta. It should be quite a sight as these two rip up the Solent at speeds of over twenty knots.


David Bedford will be sailing on board Red as part of the afterguard after steering Patches-Siemens in the Breitling MedCup in Punta A’la: “This will be her(Red) first race and obviously we will need to get to know her before we can really be up to speed, but I know Charles Dunstone is very keen to drive her and see what she is capable of.”

However they are not the only big boats at the regatta, the long awaited debut of Colm Barrington’s new Ker 50 Magic Glove is expected and Farr 52s Chernikeeff and Kit Hobday’s well campaigned Bear of Britain are regular competitors. Ger O’Rourke’s canting keel Cookson 50 Chieftain will create a list of six boats over 50 feet for the first time in years at the event.

Chieftain competed in the Myth of Malham RORC offshore race last weekend completing the 115 miles in 8 hours 26 minutes winning class and IRC overall.

Entry for the Fortis IRC Championships close Friday 2nd June
