Adventures

Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week – Day 2 adventures!

VX One Class at Cowes Week

Roger Phillips sailed a VX One for the first time today and absolutely sent it with his crew Tom Compton, and Nathan Batchelor from Ovington Boats. Love this class, I was very jealous of the action in the sports boat class today!

J70 Class – RAF Benevolent Fund Spitfire

The last time I caught up with Simon Ling was at the J70 Worlds in La Rochelle a month ago. Great to catch up with him again in Cowes, and to see so many J70s out on the water!

Dragon Class at Cowes Week

Happy Birthday to Mark! Was great to chat to Mark Hart and his skipper Gavia Wilkinson-Cox, the defending champions in the Dragons at Cowes Week!

Quarter Ton Class – Blackfun

Boat of the day in the Quarter Ton class today was Blackfun, great to talk with the tactician Mark Lees on the racing at Cowes Week, and the Quarter Ton class in general!

Leading IRC 0 – Tokoloshe II

And onto the weapons! I had a chat with David Bartholomew who is running and doing tactics on Tokoloshe II for the IRC 0 class on the phone, as the boat is living in Hamble. Gorgeous “little” GP42!
