Fuller Breaks down

News travels fast and all the way from sunny Spain, i can tell you all that Mr Fullers race class compised of all of two boats, you would think that they would both get a podium position. As it stood he was beaten by Gordon Crompton, fair enough someone has to win, but Mr Fuller did not even get on the podium, so results are Gordon Crompton First.......... Jon Fuller LAST.

I find that news absolutely hilarious how very good of you to come on here and let us know.

Just think, Nick (who actually owns the 32) has spent some serious money on new engines for this year only to have some kind of minor failure. But frankly, on a day when someone has lost his life at the very same event. I'd hope you'd have better taste

unfortuantely news of the accident did not travel as quick as the news of jon breaking down. Yes it is sad and tragic that a great racer and person and friend of mine has had a fatal accident, but no where in that post have i disrespected him or any one else or would even think of doing so. i was having light hearted fun at Mr fullers expense.

For anyone that's interested.

Here's a few short clips popped together of our unsuccessful challenge against Lord Compton of Sealand on Saturday. Showing the late start (struggled getting on plane, so a few mins behind the fleet) then catching Gordon, then Bob, then about 1 min from the end of the clip, we lose one cylinder on the std motor and the speed drops to about 50. didn't give up completely until we were off North Foreland (farthest point from home, our usual trick)

It didn't look rough enough to need the bog roll that seemed to be blowing around the cockpit?

I nicked a bog roll from the toilets for applying rain-x to my visor. the roll sorta escaped and unravelled when we were on the move.

But no, wasn't particularly rough. at least not on the parts of the course we ran on.

Swipes has a great record of breaking down on the farthest part of the course. never seems to happen near home.

Appears to be injector failure of some sort.

Have you got any pics of the interior of swipes? Looks really neatly rigged in the vid, I'd love to see some more!
