Win for J109 Bonfire in the RTYC Triangle race 2016

21 June 2016

Many congratulations to Colin and Alistair who came 1st overall in the 2nd race from Kinsale, Ireland to Treguier , Brittany in the Royal Torbay Yacht Club's Triangle Race.  The pair chartered Bonfire our J109 which has been set up especially for double handed sailing.  In the first race from Torquay to Kinsale they came a respectable 10th but in the second race they really gathered pace sailing across to Brittany and came 1st in class .  This has placed them 5th overall for the 2016 Triangle Race. 

"The Triangle is a double handed challenge open to cruiser and cruiser racer monohull yachts of 25ft LOA or over. The event runs from Torquay to Kinsale Southern Ireland to Treguier Brittany and back to Torquay. The distance is at least 620 miles and lasts 12 days. At least 2 days are spent in each port with receptions, parties and even shore based sporting competitions laid on and there are always plenty of impromptu parties on yachts and ashore."      For more details go to:   yachting-monthly-triangle-race-2016
