SEVERALLES CHALLENGE arrived in Plymouth yesterday after completing the 2,000-mile Teesside Two-Handed Round Britain and Ireland Race in record time. The trimaran took one hour off the previous multi-hull record of nine days 22 hours and 15 minutes, set in 1982 by an American couple, Walter and Joan Greene aboard Acapella. Richard Tolkien's Enif broke the 60-foot monohull record by more than 12 hours in 10 days 3hr 46min.
