Marsden,
1984 2 June, OSTAR: DNF/91ttc, Frank WOOD
Comments from Frank & Chris "The dismasting was caused by fatigue of the starboard s/s fitting connected to the mast rigging, due I guess from the small whale I sailed over stopping the boat almost dead in the water pulling out the forward dagger board the speed was in the order of 8 to 9 knots…(The race of (Triple Jack) “marsden” was published in 1985 by Adlard coles ltd. And the book is called Rogue Waves.) The mast came down gently and was not damaged, lashed on deck and later reused.I will send you the transcript what happened after the dismasting"

30 mars, "Triple Jack again", Fine conditions for the BVI Sailing Festival Round Tortola Race: " The trimaran Triple Jack, owned by Richard Wooldridge and Steve Davis (BVI), charged off the start to an early lead in the CSA Multihull class, making its way around the island in corrected time of 3:46:38, taking first place overall in the 2016 Nanny Cay Cup. Woolridge commented: "It was a beautiful day for it, the wind was perhaps a little more than forecasted, blowing a good 18 at the start and gusting 20+. We had a very fast trip down the north side with the spinnaker up, jousting with Spookie and while they started after us, it was great finishing before them. We did break our main halyard on the last beat up from West End and there was also a large cruise ship in West End which made tacking through the Narrows interesting."; Davis said: "Having raced Triple Jack since 1998, improving our performance over the years has been a combination of racing conditions and doing a lot of work on the boat as she was built in 1979. She's like an old MG so we do have to be a little careful!"

2017 September, Irma devastated the Virgin Islands, "Triple Jack was literally blown off her mooring as one of the 1" lines severed the front beam, the other broke, chafed? who knows. She landed ashore about 800 yds away, upside down on a concrete bridge, the mast broken in 4 places and the deck heavily damaged. "
