Charles is a seasoned Corinthian solo sailor, with more than 20,000 miles of offshore and ocean racing under his belt. Of his Sigma 36 'British Beagle' he says - 'Beagle maybe an older generation racer-cruiser which, like her owner, is a bit scruffy round the edges, with plenty of battle-scars, but it is a very well sorted boat, with a fantastic race pedigree. Charles and British Beagle finished 2nd in the 2013 Solo Trans-Atlantic Races (OSTAR); they were 2nd overall in the 2-handed class in the 2011 Fastnet race as well as finishing the 2017 edition; they have competed two Solo ‘Round the Rock’ races, finishing 3rd in class in 2016, when less than half the fleet made it round and 3rd again in the 2018 edition. In 2018 they finished 1st in IRC class 4 sailing 2-handed in the Sevenstars Round Britain and Ireland Race. As well as many other solo offshore race podiums, she has also won class in Falmouth week three times and was crowned ‘Top-Yacht’ in 2012. In the last edition of the AZAB Race, we had to retire after 24 hours with auto helm failure, but hope to do better this time!
