FASTNET 2011 - Premier Flair
In 2011 as part of a team we completed a six month yacht racing campaign on the 41ft ELAN ‘Premier Flair’ which involved training weekends in the Solent and five overnight offshore races. This qualified us for an entry in the RORC 2011 Fastnet.
Racing ranged from being becalmed to savage seas in gale force winds. We managed five finishes and one retirement, due to severe damage sustained, and ended up in the top third of the fleet.
