One Ton Cup Final Report - Morty Wins the One Ton Cup
One Ton Cup Final Report - Morty Wins the One Ton Cup
It was fifth time lucky for Morty, but the wait is now over. Peter Morton's Carkeek 40+ Girls on Film has won the 2016 One Ton Cup. The Cowes based team were worthy winners having scored no worse than a fourth in nine races. Peter Morton has come second in the One Ton Cup on two occasions and the attempts to win the prestigious trophy span over three generations.
“It has been unfinished business.” smiled Peter Morton, rinsed in champagne. “The team on Girls on Film have ben absolutely fabulous. I would also like to thank the Royal Southern Yacht Club and Principal Race Officer, Stuart Childerley and his team for outstanding race management. Also Rob Greenhalgh for coming up with the idea of the FAST40+ Class and putting it together. For those of you that haven't won, I would say just be patient, your time will come.”

Barbados September Regatta - Cobra is Barbados Bound
The sun came out for the final day of the Royal Southern Yacht Club's September Regatta, also incorporating the One Ton Cup. Light winds and warm air, provided comfortable racing conditions, but a fickle sea breeze made for shifty racing in the Solent. Hundreds of club members, sailors and friends gathered at the Royal Southern Yacht Club's Prince Philip Yacht Haven for the presentation.
“The club has hosted world championships before and will continue to do so and the hosting of major events like the One Ton Cup is all down to a lot of hard work by the staff and volunteer members of the Royal Southern.” commented Rear Commodore Sailing, Graham Nixon. “There has been a substantial investment in the club with the opening of the Prince Phillip Yacht Haven and we have a wonderful combination of facilities ashore and afloat. Well done to Peter Morton and his team, it has been an honour for the club to host the One Ton Cup.”
