Rio de Janeiro, Brasil – George David?s 90 foot super-maxi yacht, Rambler (USA) is the line honours winner of the Offshore Race Rolex Buenos Aires – Rio de Janeiro. The American yacht crossed the line in Baía de Guanabara, off Rio de Janeiro at 12h55m45s am local time, establishing a new record for this offshore classic, in its? 22nd edition this year.

The Reichel Pugh design, skippered by American Ken Read, covered the 1123-nautical mile course in 4 days, 9 hrs, 55 minutes, 45 seconds, beating the record set by the Brazilian yacht Cisne Branco in 1987 – 4 days, 18 hours, 52 minutes, 57 seconds.

Rambler?s crew is headed to the Iate Club Rio de Janeiro, to wait for the rest of the fleet and see if they can claim the corrected time win as well.
