Regatta success joy for Sloop John T

The Thomson family achieved a splendid double success at a major sailing regatta at the Royal Yacht Squadron in Cowes on the Isle of Wight.

Sloop John T, owned by Iain and Graham Thomson, won class one of the Swan European Regatta for the second time, after achieving the same success in 2011.

The yacht, a Swan 40, was crewed by members of the Clyde Cruising Club including Iain’s son John and Graham’s son James. They beat off the challenge of eight other boats over seven races held in four days of tough sailing to lift the Swan European Trophy.
