Mermaid EC Harris first to cross the line

Leading international consultants EC Harris won the prestigious Weatheralls Seaview Trophy held at the Sea View Yacht Club on the Isle of Wight, 21-23 June 2004.

The Mermaid sailed by the EC Harris team triumphed last week over eleven other teams, including ATIS REAL Weatheralls, DTZ and Knight Frank.

The racing was tight and competitive, with winds relatively benign on the first day, but building to a steady Force five on the second day, restricting all of the boats to racing without Spinnakers.

EC Harris won through the early rounds to appear in the semi-finals, where they beat Donaldsons. The final was an extremely tense and closely fought affair, but they just triumphed over last year’s winners CBRE.
