Headhunter Wins Concours d’Elegance

The Henri Lloyd Concours d’Elegance Trophy is awarded to the boat which in the opinion of a secret judging panel is the best presented of the regatta.  It was a tough competition this year with a number of the boats looking exceptionally good this season. But after much deliberation the trophy was presented at the Wednesday night awards ceremony to a boat which has undergone an extraordinary transformation.

What you almost certainly won’t think of is Headhunter, which came into the ownership of Paul Wayte a few years ago as a classic HB31 in something of a sorry state and has since been almost completely rebuilt so that she now looks like this:

What a transformation!
