More Humphreys Success in Solent Spring Series
— 01 May 2006
The IRC3 class at the Raymarine Warsash Spring Series saw a closely fought battle for top slot between Peter Rutter’s Elan 37 Quokka and Jim MacGregor’s Elan 40 Flair IV (both pictured left). Both boats took two firsts each in the six race series, but Quokka finally took the overall first place with ten points to Flair IV’s twelve.
Meanwhile down the Solent at Lymington Class One was convincingly won by Peter Scholfield in his HOD 35 Zarafa with six firsts and a second after discards, while Elan 40 Deuce, owned by Martin Gee, took overall second place with two firsts, four seconds and a third.
Earlier in the year Deuce also came third in IRC Class 1 against 44 competitors in the Two Handed Round the Island Race organised by the Royal Southampton Yacht Club on the 7th February.
