2016 saw the start of a new class on the solent scene, the HP30's following on from the success of the Fast40 class this is high performance sailing in 30 foot boats. I joined the new team on an old Melges 32 and even though she was an old design, when we got it right, we were ahead of the newer boats in the class.
Above you see me on the back of the Melges after rounding the top mark and bearing awa to avoid the Mumm 30 that had just fallen over in front of us!
Sad to say the owner sold the boat after this season and moved to the high octane three hulled D30.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
