C75 The Mike, owned by Mark Wilby and Phil Holding, has spent the last two years undergoing a major refit, and this weekend saw her finally hit the water for her first sail. Jeremy Newman took Avocet out to keep them company and the boat (and the boys) looked fantastic setting off for their first mini adventure.
Mark and Phil have put in literally hundreds of hours to bring the boat back to life, but they also paid tribute to Malcolm Goodwin, Rob Maloney and Craig Bond for all the help and support they had given along the way. It’s been a labour of love but the boat is looking stunning so it was most definitely worth it.
Welcome back to the fleet guys and we hope to see you on the start line for Wivenhoe Regatta next weekend!
