Best result of the season

X181 Xtravagance was 5th this morning out of 12 boats.  Great to see Tom Tait back on the water and racing as well as ever.  Welcome back Tom.

Tait Trophy Winner – Ilex

Well done Barry Field and his team on Ilex.  Ilex was the only boat that competed in all five of this year’s out of harbour races.  Despite being becalmed on the way to Bembridge and being towed in, Ilex showed what rewards tenacity and perseverance could bring by braving the strong winds in the last pair of back to back races to complete a good series of results.
