Half Ton Classics Cup at Falmouth - Coastal Race

A quick update on the Henri Lloyd Half Ton Classics Cup at Falmouth where Paul Pullen's Miss Whiplash was the eventual winner of the 40 mile Coastal Race.

Greg Peck's Swuzzlebubble rounded the last markwith a big lead on the water, but on corrected time she and Miss Whiplash were neck and neck.

The final leg in through the heads was a close reach in an awkward swell.

Swuzzlebubble crossed the finish just off Falmouth all heads turned to see how Miss Whiplash was doing.

The stopwatches were out and as Whiplash crossed the line it was confirmed that, after more than five hours racing, she had won by a mere six seconds.

Third place went to Jonny Swan's Harmony with Philippe Pilate's General Tapioca fourth.
