Trevor Kent who served in the Royal Navy from 1976 to 1991 has recently purchased the Classic Hunton 39' Guernsey Gold Cup winner and 2008 Round Britain boat 'Garmin'.

They are currently in the process in restoring her so she can participate in future Marathon races/series including Cowes Torquay Cowes.

They are looking for engines, diesel preferably so if you have any spare or know of someone who have some engines for sale then please contact Trevor via the website www.vcrew.co.uk or email Trevor@vcrew.co.uk

We are looking forward to seeing another class race boat back racing in the UK.

Keith Schellenberg 1929 - 2019

Sad news for the world of offshore today, as news came out today of Keith's passing peacefully at his home in Richmond on Monday.

Keith started his first Cowes Torquay back in 1963 onboard the Sky Blue Bertram hull 'Blue Moppie' finishing second behind A’Speranziella and Sonny Levi.

Incredibly after numerous attempts on this great race, at the age of 78 Keith returned to Cowes racing a Cougar US-1 monohull called 'Yellow drama' and finished a very respectable second place in Class 1 (17th Overall) in 2008.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all his family and friends.
