Island Charter's owned Maxi 1200 Baldur won the Bank of England Regatta this weekend.   The racing took part in the Solent over the bank holiday weekend in some perfect racing conditions.  The yacht was chartered for the event by the winning team.  

"Upwind we made good speed with a light helm; in 12 knots TWS we averaged around 6.8 knots of boat speed at a TWA of around 50°. Doubtless a lower true wind angle beating could be achieved using in-haulers on the headsail, as the jib cars are sited on the deck rather than the coachroof and therefore make quite a wide base"   commented Pip Hare while test sailing.
