XOD Lass Winner XOD Class AMM Cowes Week 2013
 


Congratulations to the team of John Tremlett, Richard Jordan, Richard Bullock and Jerry Lear on board Lass who won a very tight Captain's Cup series for the XOD class in this year's Cowes Week. In fact it was more of a squad system, with the crew rotating to make sure they all had a fair share of the fun.

Although leading by 4.5 points going into the final day, any one of 8 boats boats had a mathematical chance of winning, so there would be no easy day of marking a single competitor. In the end they finished in style by winning the last race to seal overall victory. The regatta was a tough all round test, with the breeze dropping to less than 3 knots on some days and over 20 knots on other days, with Lass having the speed to cope with any situation.

5 of the 7 races were won by North Sails, and North results in the top 10 were 1, 3, 4 and 6.
