    They won the second leg.


    Warpath wins second leg of Venture Cup prologue
    Sun, 9 Jun 2013 Ray Bulman

    ShareCrew make up for time lost in opening race

    Warpath made up for lost time in leg one to take top spot in leg two of the Venture Cup prologue race.

    It was almost neck and neck all the way from the Fairway Buoy west of the Isle of Wight to Guernsey today (Sunday) after stress of weather forced the opening leg of the race into Poole on Saturday.

    This time it was the first day's early leader, the American entered Warpath of Daryl Grady that led the fleet across the finishing line.

    Although conditions were far from calm, organisers made the correct decision to continue the race to the Channel Islands. It proved the right approach with eight of the original ten starters in London reaching Guernsey.

    The win was just reward for Warpath after its crew lost vital time refuelling at Brighton during the first leg although various penalties (some due to competitors entering exclusion zones) later moved it up to third place on the overall finishing table.

    The German entry of Markus Hendricks aboard Cinzano that won the opening round arrived second in Guernsey and hence is likely to be declared overall leader on elapsed time at this stage when results are finally calculated.

    The Scorpion RIB Grey Ghost driven by Paul Glenister enjoyed a close tussle with sister Scorpion Hot Lemon V of Darren Mellish, the latter pipping Grey Ghost at the line to take third place.

    I read somewhere else they won overall but now know that's not the case. They got a 1hr. penalty and had logistic problems refueling, those two things may have cost them the overall win. Still kind of proves the Chief have a good design. Maybe they'll build some more.

    The results have me thinking the Chief First Mohican currently for sale is worth looking into.
