1st place - IRC XXXX Gold Cup 2015 - The Fat Controller
Victoria Pryce, co-skipper Hamish and the crew of The Fat Controller have taken out 1st place in the IRC Division XXXX Gold Cup over the weekend.
Cameron and Lesley Pryces' Farr 40, finished second to Black Jack Too in the IRC State Titles earlier in the month. So it was smiles all round when the crew were presented the XXXX Gold Cup yesterday.
As to the boat’s quirky name, the bubbly Lesley Pryce reports it comes from the Thomas the Tank Engine books.
With a penchant for boat names that often raise a querying eye, Lesley said that after reading the books she remembered the head of the railway’s name and just couldn’t go past it when it came to naming their newest acquisition.
