The Top of the Gulf Regatta is midway (May 4–8). The heat is on for all teams and we find the SeaCart 26 ‘‘Sweet Chariot’’ in second place. ‘‘In the Ocean Multihull class, the smallest boat in the fleet, the pocket-rocket SeaCart 26 Sweet Chariot, skippered by John Higham, stretched her legs to take Line Honours by over 50 minutes and the handicap win from Andrew Stansky’s Fantasia in second and David Race’s Free Wheeler in third. There is still all to play for with Sweet Chariot taking a two point lead into the final day after the drop race has been accounted for.’’ Read all about it in the fine Sailing World report, link below.

Sweet Chariot at top after final day; ‘‘All was to play for in the Ocean Multihull Class going into the final day with just two points separating the smallest and largest in the class. However, with races cancelled today and having taken account of the drop race, the 26-foot Sweet Chariot, skippered by John Higham took the class win from Andrew Stransky on his 50-foot self-designed Fantasia. Free Wheeler, skippered by David Race, finished third’’
