Overall win at Cowes for duo
4:37pm Thursday 22nd August 2013 in Local Sport
MALCOLM Hutchings and Andy Ramsey were crowned overall winners of the Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week.
The two Burnham sailors performed excellently in their squib, Lady Penelope, all week.
They dominated to take the class title with a day to spare and at the end of racing had amassed seven points.
This score not only won them the class victory but gave them a chance of taking the White Group, which is where all the one design classes compete, title as well.
The White Group winner is then compared against the top boat in the Black Group, where the IRC boats race, to decide the overall best boat.
Once the numbers had all been crunched and the factors relating to the differences between the White Group and the Black Group had been considered, Lady Penelope was declared the overall winner of Cowes Week 2013.
