Fastnet Success for Hannah and Henry onboard FASTRAK XII

Fastnet Success for Hannah and Henry onboard FASTRAK XII

Tuesday 6th August 2019

Henry, Hannah and FASTRAK XII (our new Jeanneau Sunfast 3300)  have had great success in the classic offshore Rolex Fastnet race this year. On the Team’s inaugural outing they produced some marvellous results and certainly deserve the celebratory pint they are enjoying in this picture taken at the finish. They achieved

  • 1st IRC 3A
  • 2nd IRC 3 overall
  • 2nd IRC Double handed

Henry and Hannah ran a perfect race but not without its problems having split their code 0 and lost their wind instruments on the way back from the Rock. Despite the problems they maintained their position, reporting 23 knots boat speed at one stage and certainly got their Olympic aspirations off to a flying start

The Jeanneau factory team SF3300 SAPRISTI also ran a great race skippered by Alexandre Ozon and Luce Molinier, finishing 6th in IRC 3A, 9th in IRC 3 and 7th in IRC double handed.

It was an impressive first outing for Jeanneau’s new racing machine. It was a big race fleet this year, and  the Sunfast 3300s  showed a clean pair of heels to most of them!

Hi Nigel, I feel I have to take the opportunity to contact you with regard to Tom Edgington. First off when I dropped by Sea Ventures, I just wanted to register an interest in purchasing a boat end of 2013 / early 2014 as I have done with several brokers. Needless to say, as I write this, I am surprised to find myself the proud owner of a vessel. You have to hand it to Tom; he is very good at his job. In my case he had a real challenge and I worked him hard. He had to hand hold an unwilling seller and an unwilling buyer, kicking and fighting into a point of agreement that no one wanted to agree to. But he did it with such grace, calm and pleasantness that we are all the best of friends and all remain in directly in contact going forward. His aftersales advice has been simply perfect and I would have been simply lost without him. You just have to put him on speed-dial for you next purchase and pass him out to friends and colleagues. I work with a lot of salespeople in the computer industry and many resellers of our product, so I know very good work when I see it. Hence I had to take the time tell you what a great pleasure it has been working with him. Kindest regards. Mike
