V 24

This was Shelly & Gavin in the Round the Island race in 2003 the first full year of V24, both survived ok and Mark Pasco did a Brilliant job in repairing the boat and Gavin did a great job on installing the new engine only to find on initial run-up on the morning of scrutineering at Southsea for the finals that there was a water leak from a cracked cylinder head, so had to replace the engine with the old one that we had got running at Cowes the same day of the sinking but were unsure of it reliability due to water in the electronics, they did make it to the race in Southsea but as expected did have electrical problems but still managed to come in second in the series. The boat went on to race in Jaguar colours as Shelly went onto Honda series and Gavin eventually to P1 before emigrating to Australia.
