Mike has spent his time since Christmas rigging and tuning his new Exocet and grabbing time on the water when he can between the storms that have been battering his home sailing venue at Hayling Island. Mike was genuinely surprised when the trophy was awarded and couldn’t stop grinning for a while. “It’s really nice to won this prize. As a lad I used to see the Scorpions winning the Concours d’Elegance, so I think it’s a really big deal for the Moth class to win it now.”

Thanks to Mike, the Internatonal Moth class have won three months worth of skyscraper banner advertising worth £600 courtesy of title sponsor and the Concours d’Elegance Trophy for the year.

Many thanks also to Simon Maguire for providing the photos and of course the stunning Maguire Exocet that won the prize!
