For 2018 we will be enteringAntigua Sailing Week on 'BOB', a fully race ready Farr 52. BOB has had an interesting history over the years after initially being launched as ‘Bear of Britain’ for legendary yachtsman Kit Hobday. Hobday’s ‘Bear of Britain Academy’ provided training for young sailors in the art of racing and established a strong racing pedigree, winning several prestigious titles over the years. Renamed as “BOB”, the well-known yacht went on to make global headines when BP CEO Tony Hayward and co-owner of “BOB” at the time, came under fierce criticism for racing the yacht shortly after the BP oil spillage in the Gulf of Mexico. “BOB” then most recently joined the ‘Toe in the Water’ charity which used competitive sailing to re-inspire injured servicemen from the armed forces.
