Mervyn Wheatley – Tamarind – Finished 25th June 11:59 EDT


After 30 days, 4 hours and 59 mins, Mervyn Wheatley and his Formosa 42 Tamarind romped across the line under his huge genoa, affectionately nicknamed ‘Patsy’s Drawers’. Mervyn has had a challenging race with a failure of his auto-helm system and a stumble across the cockpit resulting in a broken nose. Despite all this, he arrived in very good spirits and hosted a cocktail party aboard Tamarind for the Race Committee and other OSTAR competitors. An interview with Mervyn by Jill Southwood to follow.

Well Done Mervyn!
