Anticipating heavy winds beneath a huge Cumulonimbus that hovered ominously over Rhode Island, Krystian approached the finish line heavily reefed and demonstrating the seamanship and preparation required to successfully complete this epic singlehanded race. Local Polish support has been second to none, fans and supporters overwhelmed Krystian as he arrived into Newport Yacht Club. The 37’ Farr designed ‘Sunrise’ finished her long journey under a glorious sunset at 20:30 local time, 28 days, 13 hours and 30mins after the start in Plymouth last month. Congratulations Krystian!
