Sail-World.com : SailJuice Global Warm-Up 2011 has new reluctant Champion

SailJuice Global Warm-Up 2011 has new reluctant Champion

Musto Skiff sailor Andy Peake has found himself as the new, unexpected and somewhat reluctant champion of the SailJuice Global Warm-Up 2011.

Almost a fortnight since the final event of the UK dinghy winter travellers’ series concluded at a windy John Merricks Tiger Trophy at Rutland Water, controversial debate about the legality of their experimental sails has forced the winners, Merlin Rocket sailors Matt Biggs and Ben Hollis, to relinquish the title.

Musto Skiff sailor Andrew Peake, now elevated from runner-up to 2011 champion, commented: 'Obviously it's always nice to win a competition, but I'd have preferred not to have won it like this. As far as I'm concerned, Matt and Ben won the series fair and square, and it's a shame they've felt compelled to retire from the SailJuice Global Warm-Up. The experimental sails they were using were, for me, a non-issue, and had absolutely no bearing on the outcome of the Series. But I hope they'll come back next year and we can enjoy another round of winter competition on the water without any of the off-the-water politics.'

The prizegiving is set to take place at the RYA Volvo Dinghy Show at Alexandra Palace at 1245pm on Saturday, 5 March 2011.
