We had another great result in the Eddystone Charity Pursuit!
A fleet of 8 boats were entered; our 3 Hawks, Rory’s Anderson’s ‘Le Faucon’, Jon Worster’s new boat ‘Lucent’, Andrew Eccleston in ‘Bessie’, Jon Keeping in ‘Asterix’ and Peter Carpenter in ‘Bidwell’. All boats were crewed by a mixture of cadets, volunteers, staff and trustees.
Our total sponsorship was £ 9,379 and we won £ 3,471 more in prize money. As always, Horizons punched well above its weight due to the skill and commitment of our people. Special mention to Jon Worster who won the event overall, the Lucent/Bidwell/Bessie mash-up won the team prize and Lois and Freya who were the first all-girl boat home.
