At tonight’s prize giving the Half Ton Classics Cup Harken winch handle for race 8 was awarded to fifth placed Skippy’s Ton owned by Nicolas Lejeune and Jean Marie Gillès. Nicolas was particularly delighted to win the prize, not only because Harken’s Carbo One Touch winch handles are a fabulous piece of kit, but because they lost a winch handle over the side earlier in the week and really needed a replacement.
