Round Up

Celebrities on Open 60’s
A
number of stars from the world of sport, politics and television took
to the Solent today for the Artemis Challenge at Skandia Cowes Week.
The British summer delivered rain and gusty winds as eight 60 foot yachts
charged around the Isle of Wight in a 50 mile sprint to battle it out
for a £10,000 charity prize fund. The high speed ocean racing
yachts hosted a number of celebrity guests, including Alastair Campbell,
Davina McCall, Commonwealth Gold Medallist, Dean Macey and England rugby
star, James Haskell. It was British skipper Brian Thompson who claimed
the first prize onboard Pindar, donating the winning
prize to Earthwatch. More here.
