Just to prove the old ones go fast too - of course, I mean the boats!
 
Here's a shot of Howard Chadwick and crew blasting across Derwent Reservoir in Sept 2007 to win the vintage Open meeting.  He was the only one to survive!

Triarda has continued to perform well sneaking victory in the vintage series again in 08, 09 and 2010 and first in the Burton Cup race in 2009 but beaten to the Shotgun Trophy by Tim Gatti in 2009 and Brian Kitching in 2010.  Updated with a carbon boom (half a Radical Edward mast) and one of the last suits of Alverbank sails she continues to give excellent service and chase the elusive Shotgun Trophy.

Bit of synchronisity here as Triada was once owned by the late Howard Elcock. I first knew Howard when he sailed at at Naburn and he sailed Triad.  He was then a lecturer at Hull University prior to selling Triada and I and later moving up to Newcastle and sailing at Tynemouth. Small world eh?
