Black Diamond sailing in the Dover and Ramsgate area

Friday, April 07, 2017

Black Diamond a Figaro 1, owned and skippered by Graham Eggleton gave us a run down on his plans for her this season and the in the future. 

Black Diamond has just received her new spinnaker and mainsail for the coming season to compliment their existing Hyde No 3 and No 4 onboard. Graham worked with our Kent distributor Simon Northrop and said the following;

"Very happy with the performance of our new spinnaker and mainsail. The Black Diamond sewn in looks awesome! Simon Northrop is fantastic and the main reason I ordered Hyde sails"

Racing either fully crewed or short handed, this is Grahams second season with her after previous owner Mark Brown raced and won plenty with her in the Solent.

Grahams timeline so far goes as below:

2016 - We won most of the club trophies in Dover, plus won Round the Goodwins at Ramsgate Week double handed.

2017 - Our aim to get some great results against the Ramsgate fleet.

2018 - Move to South Coast to race double handed

2019 - Azores and back.

Graham has a drone out with the boat this weekend and with a fantastic forecast for the weekend, we look forward to seeing the footage!
