Barton Equipped 'Assasin' wins Ramsgate week gold cup 2006
Peter Jackson's J39 'Assassin' has recently won all six races in the IRC Series Class 1 of Ramsgate Week, before winning the highly respected Gold Cup on the last day of the regatta.
"The toughest part of the week was the Gold Cup race with winds of over 30 knots. Assassin reached record speeds of 20 knots so we had to rely on all the gear onboard especially our Barton blocks, with their performance and reliability in these extreme conditions," comments Peter, five-time winner of the Ramsgate Week Gold Cup over the past 12 years.
Assassin is supported by Barton Marine, supplying the yacht with blocks and deck fittings. Barton produces over 1,000 products to provide the power for both racers and cruisers alike.
