This is a spectacular action shot of club member Matt McGrath hard at work flying a hull on his 27ft catamaran Typhoon; while sailingĀ  in the 2008 Kings Cup Regatta in Phuket, Thailand.

Last week club members helped disassemble Typhoon in less than 2 hoursĀ  for storage, the two hulls slide together, mast is unstepped without a crane, all done on the trailer, which fits inside a 40ft shipping container, a very neat package.

Matt is off to Connecticut, USA for summer sailing, he will return at the end of October hopefully with his American Yacht Masters certificate to boost the member assistance services available from our club.
