My mate Steve and I have owned 'Triple Jack' for the last 21 years.

We are based in the BVI's.

Over the years we have carried out a bewlidering array of modifications which have all been about making her faster, stronger and more nimble.

 

'Triple Jack' was designed by Derek Kelsall and built by Frank Woods,

She raced the 1980 'Twostar' and the 1981 'Round Britain and Ireland'

More recently we have won the Heineken a couple of times over the last 14 years and have only once been off the podium

We can sustain over 20kts and can average high teens. 

There's only a couple of gunboat 66's that can take us, one being 'Elvis' at this year's Heineken.

 

So what is all this about?

Well, we are looking for a team who want to set up a race programme over the next few years.

We supply the boat, you supply the sails.

Nanny Cay furnished us with a gorgeous set of Quantums 7 yrs ago.

The carbon main blew out last year at the Heineken, the jib is not far behind. 

We have a couple of OK kites but sorely need a furling 'A' sail.

 

What's the catch?

2 crew drawn from Steve, myself or another long term TJ hand have to be on board.

You show up with the team, we practice, race and party.

You go home and we get set for the next event.

Repeat until the sails wear out!

 

If it is the Caribbean 600 you are interested in there may be a bit more to it than sails alone.

Just details!
