The awards photo shows the winning team with Laura Levi. She is the daughter of Sir Max Aitken, who founded this race in 1961 and she is married to Sonny Levi's son, Martin. Her daughter also raced in the smaller Cowes to Poole race and back this past weekend.

Great to be here and see many old friends...... from Richie Powers to Mike Mantle,
​​​​​​​ the navigator for Dry Martini Cowes wins and also for Betty Cook's win in the late 70's.

Thanks Nigel, but we are your fans too. So nice to finally meet the master behind all those great shots of real offshore racing over the years. Keep up the good work and hopefully we may have interest in old school racing again.
