Tuesday 8th August 2023

This years edition of Cowes Week was another windy regatta – but proved very successful for Andy Robinson’s new X4³ 2023 model “Xcapade”, delivered only a few months ago.  Congratulations to Andy and his young crew, along with all the other X-Yachts racing in this historical regatta.

“We are really pleased to have won the “Overall Performance Cruiser Trophy” at Cowes Week 2023 against a diverse fleet of 35 similar performance yachts; Xcapade was delivered only 3 months ago, so to achieve this success and also 2nd in the “Newcomers Trophy” this year is a fantastic achievement and testament to the sporting pedigree of this new X-Yacht and the competence of our crew.”  Andy Robinson.
