Campbell wins and gets plastered! 31 May 2007
Thirty-one boats competed, including seven boats from the Burnham Dragon Fleet. Five races were sailed over the three days in difficult and challenging conditions.
During the start of the last race the main sheet in Quicksilver lll became jammed and it took a great heave before Rob was able to clear it. Not until the next day did he decide that he’d done some damage, so it was off to A&E, X-ray and a plaster cast…
The win was a repeat performance for Rob, crewed by Matt Walker and Marc Ellis, as he won the same event in 2006 with Matt and Jonathan Hill as his crew. Other competitors have won the event more than once but not in successive years.
Congratulations and here’s hoping that the plaster is removed quickly as he might have to take up gardening!
