Fire on Titan Powerplay

Disaster on the Reichel Pugh 75 last night at Antigua Sailing Week

Tuesday April 26th 2011, Author: Louay Habib, Location: Antigua and Barbuda

Last night the Reichel Pugh maxi Titan Powerplay was badly damaged when fire broke on board as she was berthed in Falmouth Marina.

Nobody was injured in the incident, however the red maxi has been damaged beyond immediate repair and will not be racing for the rest of Antigua Sailing Week.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 crews 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 were racing Titan Powerplay at the regatta.
