We have some good news from Helensburgh. On Saturday morning Sailing Fast handed over to Tom Aitchison the new Topper which has been provided to him under the Priority User Agreement which we set up with his parents. He then proceeded to sail it to first place in race 1 of the Helensburgh traveller, beating 4 GBR squad members in the process.
Tom went on to place 6th overall in the event, just behind the 4 GBR squad members and one other Helensburgh sailor. These are fantastic results considering that he only left the development fleet at the end of last season.
