TITAN BADLY DAMAGED BY FIRE
Tuesday 26th April 2011



It is with great sadness that we report that a fire on board Titan XV took hold during Antigua Sailing Week resulting in the boat being badly damaged.

Nobody was injured, however the Reichel Pugh 75 was damaged beyond immediate repair and was unable to race for the remainder of the regatta.

The fire started sometime shortly after dusk and was attended by the Antigua and Barbuda Fire Service. Special mention must also go to the entire yachting community based in Falmouth Harbour. Fire fighting equipment and training is a very important aspect of their profession and numerous yacht crew were quick to respond.

Our thoughts are with Tom and Dot Hill, the owners of Titan, who have been staunch supporters of Antigua Sailing Week for many years and also to Peter Cunningham and his Powerplay crew that had chartered and were racing Titan Powerplay for Antigua Sailing Week.  It was great to see the camaraderie of other participants who invited the Powerplay crew on board their various yachts for the remainder of the regatta.

Best wishes to Tom and Dot Hill for a successful repair of Titan XV!
