Sailing the 606nm course alone, since leaving Grand Harbour on Saturday, Limosa was on a race against the clock experiencing predominantly upwind conditions.

This is the second multihull line honours in a row for both Barrier, as skipper, and the boat that had managed such feat in 2022 under the name of Mana. 

The multihull and outright race record remains 33 hours, 29 minutes, 28 seconds, set by the MOD70 Argo in 2021.
