Beneteau 40.7 Victory

Ullman Sails once again wins in the Beneteau 40.7 fleet

Beneteau 40.7 Victory Ullman Sails once again wins in the Beneteau 40.7 fleet

"Interceptor" is having a cracking year. A few weeks ago they won the 40.7 nationals at the Taittinger Regatta. Next they fielded a youth team at Cowes Week. A strong start left them lying in third place still in striking distance of the lead. The heavy winds of day one took their toll however resulting in a broken spreader.

First thing in the morning two of the crew motored the boat back to the mainland expecting a lengthy wait for the new spreader to arrive. The team at Hamble Yacht Services were in top form though and managed to source and fit the new spreader as soon as the boat arrived. This meant it was possible to make the start of the race but with only two crew onboard. Starting late and undercrewed no one would have blamed the boys for not doing very well, however in a sterling effort they passed many of the fleet and finished in 6th place overall putting many fully crewed boats to shame. The final few days went well with two impressive wins leaving them needing a win in the final race to take the event. Although a valiant effort was made it just wasn't to be, leaving them 2nd in class, 2nd in the under 25 crew prize and James was awarded third in the youth helm award. Well done to all the crew on a great result
