From the Royal Southern YC Charity Cup Regatta…

In IRC Three, Sam Laidlaw’s BLT had a perfect day winning both races. Julian Metherell’s Bullit retains second place. However, two podium finishes for Olly & Sam Love’s SJ320 Frank 3, lifts the team up to third.

“The boat won the Quarter Ton Cup in 1980 as Bullit. Sam Laidlaw restored her last year and is now part of the Cowes Quarter Ton fleet,” commented BLT’s Brett Aarons. “There is really close racing in the class, although the boats come from different eras, after similar renovations, they are very close in speed. Light airs tend to suit the quarter tonners on corrected time because we have a large sail area for the size of the boat. For this regatta, north off the start line seems to be favourite. There seems to be a bit more wind coming out of Southampton Water. We are delighted with our results so far, and it is great to be back out racing again.”
