Malcolm Hughes Managing Director Nick Hampson recently competed in the Southport 24 hour dinghy race, finishing 4th in class.
The race is a national endurance race for classic sailing dinghies, organised by the West Lancashire Yacht Club, with an expected fleet of 70 boats racing. Boat crews sail for shifts and changeover in ‘pit stops’; the winning team is simply that which completes the most laps.
Nick said: “I raced for Pilkington Sailing Club and we came 20th overall (out of 77) and 4th in class. I sailed from 6am to 9.30am but have no new photographs: nobody was out of bed early enough on a Sunday morning!”
Nick can be seen in the baseball cap in an older photo.
