Cherete : Round The Island Race 2017
The yacht Cherete again had a great result in the Round the Island race, one of the largest yacht races in the world. Competing against 650 boats, Cherete achieved second place overall, first in class and first in division. She was crewed by owner and skipper Brian Haugh, who is from the Chichester area, brother-in-law Roger Sparrow and son Morgan Sparrow and fellow yachtsman Julian Hawe. Conditions were ideal, with one port tack all the way from the start line to The Needles, then a spinnaker run to St Catherine's Point and some mud-hopping from Bembridge to Wooton Creek, tacking all the way to the finish. They completed the course in nine hours and 21 minutes; not bad for an Alan Buchanan East Anglian Mk1 1957 classic wooden yacht.
