Oldies but Goldies
The TP52 Class Manager was part of the winning crew on the Swan82 Favonius at the 2008 Swan Worlds.
The series was sailed under difficult conditions, either very light or a lot of breeze, which was a good test of the skills of the PRO Peter Craig, who soon will join us in Lanzarote as the PRO for the TP52 World Championship.
One of the participants was Rainer Wilhelm in his recently acquired Swan80 Astro. With some familiar faces from his TP on the boat he finished in a very credible 4th position in the 29 strong fleet.
The photo shows Favonius leading Astro in the quite windy 3rd island course of the event.
