Army Offshore Regatta (AOR) Success!
The Royal Artillery Yacht Club entered Bombardier III skippered by John Johnson, and a Victoria skippered by Ed Middleton into the Regatta this year.
Bombardier III under John came second in the Dolphin Trophy, despite being pitted against 2 J109’s and 2 First 40’s.
The Victoria 34 Crew under Ed walked away with a 2nd in the Inshore Series and a 1st in the Offshore.
Well done both crews for excellent achievements and for bringing home the silver.
