The crew of Cundall had to wade through the choppy waters and testing conditions to take home the CRASH Sailing Cup and become champions of the 2017 Championships.
Cundall had to face tough resistance and challenge from the mixed crews from the construction industry big wigs that included 8Build, Taylor Winpey, and ACO. They also got the better of last year’s champions RedSkyIT.
The sailing started in the evening before the race day that included a charity auction for CRASH. This was the chance for the sailors to meet and interact before the most awaited sailing event. There were a total of 12 crews that set sail along with their professional Sunsail skippers. The races started in the afternoon and Cundall managed to become the victor of the waves just after three races. The second place went to Taylor Winpey’s Central South Division and the third spot went to last year’s winners RedSkyIT.
The partner of Cundall, Gary Rollinson, said that the three races were windswept and he was very happy that the team came out victorious in the tough conditions. The crew and everyone involved with Cundall are very happy to win the 2017 CRASH Sailing Cup. The skipper Chris Brooks led the crew well and everyone did their part to perfection to win the trophy.
Gary said that the event was very well organized and said that it is always a nice feeling to support CRASH. The team is delighted to have won the cup and more than that they have been part of a good cause. The Cundall team is looking to be back for the next year to defend their title. They are looking forward to another good contest next year and are waiting to challenge all the budding sailors. The event was able to raise £8,500 to help hospice and homelessness charities.
