A BRITISH crew has knocked 28 hours off the record for circumnavigating the United Kingdom. The four-man team of the 'Drambuie Tantalus' completed the 1,568-mile trip so quicklythat they arrived at Ramsgate too early for a planned civic reception. The boat completed the journey in 44 hours, three minutes, and three seconds. The previous record, set by Ilan Voyager in 1989, was 72 hours 47 minutes.
