Round Ireland in 18 hours and 12 minutes (now UIM ratified). We beat the current under 30ft record by 25 minutes. It would have been 2 hours plus if we had not been beaten up for the last 40 miles from Cork to Crookhaven... 

Dean and I were in Ocean Devil a Scorpion 8.5m RIB with Yanmar 315hp inboard. Yes, the same lucky Dean Watson that beat the round Anglesey World Record with me in 2015.

Full report to follow soon, but here is the edited video from the day (unfortunately the video finishes half way down the east coast of Ireland as we did not notice we had forgotten to stop the GoPro Fusion 360 camera and it ran out of storage):
