General Tapioca hits the road

Minutes after leaving Nieuwpoort for South Brittany, where the double Half Ton Classics Cup winner was to participate in the Obelix Trophy, she fell from her trailer.

Luckily the accident occurred at low speed, and the boat only narrowly missed a traffic light post. As a result the cold moulded wooden hull is badly damaged and the repairs are understood to take quite a while.

The skipper/owner has no intentions at all to abandon her and it will come as no surprise that at this very moment the halftonner is already under shed in her Brussels yacht club, where the repairs will take place.
