The solution

Friday August 2nd 2002, Author: James Boyd/Kate Maudsley, Location: United Kingdom
A week ago it looked as though some of the main players in British yachting had been excluded from competing in this year's Rolex Commodores' Cup. Over the last few days there seems to have been considerable deal making and feather smoothing going on by RORC who have today announced two new teams that will be taking place in their premier IRC regatta.

These are:

IRELAND (TEAM) TEAM
Boat Name/Owner Skipper/Type/Sail Number
Gloves Off/Colm Barrington/Corby 38/IRL2003
Mandrake/Peter Morton/Mills 50/GBR50R
Communicator/Charles Dunstone/Corby 41.5/GBR9210L

COMMONWEALTH TEAM
Boat Name/Owner Skipper/Type/Sail Number
Chernikeeff 2/Peter Harrison/Farr 52/GBR52R
On a High/Adam Gosling/Nick Harrison/Ker 11.3/GBR1102L
Blue Belle/Robert Greenhalgh/Ker 11.3/GBR

11 teams/33 yachts in total will now be competing in this year's Rolex Commodores' Cup off Cowes on 11-18 August. The competition for three boat teams comprises a series of inshore and offshore races (including the RORC's flexi-course which ensures crews are kept at sea for 24 -36 hours irrespective of wind conditions).
