Commodore’s Cup 2006
— 30 Jul 2006
This year’s Commodore’s Cup, sailed out of Cowes, UK from 25 June to 2 July, included three Humphreys‘ production designs in the line up.
The competition saw thirteen, three-boat teams from seven countries competing for the eponymous trophy. From the Humphreys drawing board were Civils with Flair, an Elan 40 racing for the GBR Black team, Quokka, an Elan 37 competing for the GBR White team, and lastly the HOD 35 Zarafa, under charter to the sole Russian team.
In a week dominated by light airs, France Bleu emerged the overall winner after the final offshore race, to beat a very strong Irish entry that had dominated the series up until that point.
The three Humphreys boats acquitted themselves well within a highly competitive fleet, and proved once again that Humphreys production designs can hold their own against the best that the world has to offer.
