Obelix Trophy - Benodet
- Thursday, 30 April 2009 15:50
Congratulations to Peter Crabbe and the crew of Jackflash who were the only Brit entrants for the Obelix Trophy this year and won the Quarter Ton Class with 4 x 1sts and 5 x 2nds, against Catch Me, Sante Bois, Dollar2, Iota, Pas d'Ecart de Bar, Grass Valley, Quel Dilemme and Ixsea.
Poor Jackflash has had an eventful month in that in transit to Portsmouth Docks, their mast fell off the trailer and broke at the top when an oncoming car in Hamble Lane ran over it. On an already tight deadline, it was hastily but brilliantly repaired by George Webb at Casse Tete and taken to Portsmouth Docks for a ferry to Jersey, but got sent to Guernsey instead. Oops. They then planned to sail to St Malo but got weather bound in Jersey, so I think a bottle of rum to these guys when they next turn up in Cowes is in order.....
