I just HAD TO buit in from Sharm El Sheickh as we cannot believe what is discussed in here!!!!

1. The Greek boat made by TOP LINE name PARALOS number G50 has WAN THE RACE AND ALL CLASSES TOO
2. Most of the British boats (I am being polite and I'm not saying ALL) have suffered various damages and could not take the weather. The damages werwe NOT MECHANIOCAL but structual or periferal. Will post details once back home.
3. Paul Lemmer (who I believe we all respect for his knowlege and experince and who was racing here) ased me to convey this message. THE GREEK BOAT WAS THE BEST BY FAR. IS A GREAT BOAT WITH A GREAT DRIVER. IT HAD TO WIN.

Any more discussion on this is wasted time I believe

The champions

Why ? I'm asking Biggles, who obviously knows that they weren't correctly prepared. He must has access to the information to back up the comment and all I'm asking is that he share it with the rest of us "lesser informed mortals".

In answer if as has been said the Brit boats fell to bits then some part of their preperation couldn't have been 100 %.
Maybe it was the standard of equipment they had, maybe it was their understanding of the conditions that would be met.
Whatever, now they've done a race they will learn from their experience and be better prepared for the next go.
No, I don't have any more information than what is said on this Forum, I'm just trying to state what appears to be the obvious.
Don't take any offence. If you were guaranteed to win something then their wouldn't be much point in taking part. It wouldn't really be a challenge.
Next time if a Brit does win then then at least he will feel as though he has achieved something.

More than the English Football team have managed to do over the last 40 years. The Greeks have even beaten us at that.

Very well done to the Topline team by the way. Whatever the reasons for the other boats' problems, they got a good result on what sounds like a very hard race.
