PRESS RELEASE : ROBERTO COIN CROSS THE FINISH LINE
Roberto Coin crosses the finish line at 13.21hrs UTC on the 13th March 2010
It was an emotional time for the boys from Roberto Coin as they leapt for land at the finish. Matthew was first off the boat, closely followed by Charlie and both struggled to find their feet on land.
There was a big crowd to welcome them made up of families of other crews and their own families.
Caribbean music and a full English breakfast awaited and after a few hours and a visit to customs, the boys are now on the way back to their villa for a freshen up before welcoming in the next boat, Patience.
Roberto Coin made fantastic progress to the finish line travelling over 71 miles in 24 hours.
Well Done Charlie & Matthew!
