Celebrating 50 years since his first Fastnet Race, Peter Morton will compete in his newly acquired Maxi 72 Notorious (formerly Caol Ila R).

Attention Rail Meat – despite her size, the Maxi 72 is a wet boat, but Morton says he will attempt to rectify this for his 2023 programme. Otherwise, Notorious is ready to go. This will be Morton’s first Rolex Fastnet Race since winning on Charles Dunstone’s maxi in 2003.
