A chat with the Skipper.
Festival of Sails: What is your best memory/achievement sailing on this boat?
Déjà vu: We have only owned this boat for 12 months and in last years FOS we were the best performed Cruising Division 2 boat over the 2 races on day 3. A great effort from a crew who at that stage had only sailed the boat for 2 months.
FOS: What do you love most about your boat?
Déjà vu: We love the fact that our boat is competitive in the cruising division and is also a very comfortable blue water cruiser.
FOS: How many times have you sailed in FOS?
Déjà vu: With my previous boat Maverick and now Deja Vu I’ve competed in the FOS for over 20 years
FOS: Why have you chosen to compete in FOS 2017?
Déjà vu: We love the competition and camaraderie of the FOS and you get to meet many interesting people who are willing to share their knowledge.
FOS: Do you have your crew confirmed? If so, mention them here!
Déjà vu: We are fortunate to have a great crew who have sailed together for several years and enjoy each other’s company. They are my wife Heather, brother Terry, Gavin and Natalie Love,Nino Di Pasquale, Jeremy Howard and Peter Hemsworth.
We wish Déjà vu and Skipper Bill Lodge the best of luck! Déjà vu will be competing in the Cruising AMS.
