The crew of Bradstone Challenger have smashed the Round Britain record on the second attempt.

After a failed attempt last month, the crew of Bladerunner, Bradstone Challenger, have smashed the world record for circumnavigating Britain by a whopping 3.5 hours.

The record stood at 30 hours 51 minutes, but when the team, led by Neil McGrigor reached the Royal Yacht Squadron at approximately 10am this morning, their time of 27 hours 10 minutes toppled it.

Neil McGrigor, Tony Jenvey, Jeremy Watts and John Guile are currently recovering with, no doubt, several glasses of champagne!
