In all, 3 legs out of 3 won by a Greek boat (a Corsair 33 made by Topline), having less than 10 testing hours at sea since production, not powered by racing outboards (just 2 common Merc 200 Optimax), manned by inexperienced crew (compared with foreign teams). However, this boat/crew won 3 first places with lap times from the second varied from 15' to more than 1 hour. Moreover, on the 2nd leg all the serious competitors (Sport Rib SR9, Scorpion, Bladerunner) abandoned due to STRUCTURAL fails because of rough waters (sea condition 6 to 7)...and your only comment to all these is that "for a start...they are NOT English but British boats"???!!! That puzzles me, to the point it seems that the outcome so far is more annoying to some people rather than surprising...
By the way codprawn, to be precise, they are neither English nor British boats...they are UK boats (so to speak in EU-terms), aren't they?
