Peter Taselaar's Bliksem Wins Greenwich Cup IRC Division

21 May 2008

When it comes to competitive racing the Melges 32 knows no boundaries! Congratulations to Peter Taselaar on Bliksem and tactician Jeremy Wimot as they won the 2008 Greenwich Cup IRC Division this past weekend in Long Island Sound. Hosted by Indian Harbor Yacht Club in Greenwich, Connecticutt, the event lasted four races over two days with a variety of wind conditions ranging from 2 to 20 knots. Nonetheless, heads were turning as this ferociously fast, fun and simple sportboat was the talk of the regatta!
