CONGRATULATIONS PETER TOOMBS AND THE CREW OF HEAD FIRST 3
Congratulations to Peter Toombs and his crew of Head First 3 on winning the prestigious and historic Prince of Wales Trophy in Halifax. Head First 3, a Farr 30 yacht, finished fifteen minutes ahead of the second place boat on corrected time. The Prince of Wales Trophy continues to live up to its reputation of being a tough one to win, whether it's high winds, or like this weekend, over five hours of gruelling light air sailing over a 25 mile course with 14 marks. This is only the second time that an Island boat has won the Prince Of Wales Cup. Dave Mosher won with Blitz in the 80's. According to the RNSYS website, the Prince of Wales Regatta is the most prestigious race in the Maritimes. The trophy was gifted to the RNSYS in 1860 by Prince Edward, later King Edward VII, to be raced for over a course on not less than 25 nautical miles in the approaches to Halifax Harbour.
