I had quite a long chat with "JJ" the youngest of the crew at the finish of RB08 in Portsmouth, here is an excerpt of my RB08 report for Sports Boat magazine which will be out in the first week in August - you'll have to buy it to read the rest!
Braveheart are certainly the dark horse in the race – more used to skippering a 60 metre trawler fishing for herring and mackerel around the coasts of the north and Irish seas, they can catch up to 1250 tonnes of fish before returning to port. Thier Scanner RIB is rigged with twin 525hp Mercruiser engines and race drives and they are definitely in with a chance of doing very well indeed, especially as they have as much sea time as anybody in the race and first had experience of much of the course.
