Welcome Back Mark Hipgrave
Mark Hipgrave and his vessel “Mister Lucky” returned home yesterday after successfully completing one of the world’s more arduous sailing events.
Mark came third place on Line Honours and third place in his class at this year’s Ostar and Twostar, which is an outstanding achievement in conditions that include violent storms, 60kn winds, 20m seas and single-handedly nonetheless. From a total of 21 at the start, 3 were scuttled (sunk) during the race and 7 made it to the finish line.
We look forward to seeing Mark around the Squadron and hearing more about his experiences.
