DELTA WING HOLDS PHS DIVISION.

by Rob Kothe on 28 Dec 2000
Delta Wing William Koppe's pilot cabined steel cruising yacht is holding onto the PHS Division lead at 3am this morning.

The heavy duty round the world boat was far from being a racing machine as any yacht could be however, the 30-40 knot seaways is proving no real obstacle for the old cruiser.

Delta Wing yesterday afternoon had been leading over Galatea, which retired overnight. The Naval entry Berimilla, the little Brolga 33 has moved up into second place ahead of Hog's Breath Witchdoctor, which is still third.

Comvergence Telecommunications retired at 9.30am this morning, whilst Amaya had diverted to Eden with radio problems.
