Icom "Assassin" Murders the Competition!

Icom "Assassin" Murders the Competition!

Icom UK have teamed up with sucessful yachtsman and Kent architect Peter Jackson, whose Stimson 42 yacht 'Assassin' was renamed the 'Icom Assassin' earlier this year. As part of the sponsorship, Icom UK supplied Skipper/Helmsman Peter and part owner Gary Shaffer with an IC-M505 VHF/DSC marine transceiver, Icom HM-162 Waterproof Remote-control Microphone and two IC-M71 handheld marine transceivers for use on the vessel.

Peter has had a phenomenal season. Sailing the "Icom Assassin" he has had big successes at both Cowes and Ramsgate Week. Peter commented "We're exceptionally pleased with the performance of the boat; whilst she doesn't have a particularly favourable handicap, when you get everything right and push her to the limit she responds. Having a 100% reliable Icom communication system with a remote cockpit repeater has been essential, as all the courses are given out on the radio these days and clear communication is absolutely vital."

Recently celebrating 1st place in the 2009 Solent Series out of some 100+ boats, both in Class 1 and overall, Peter is looking forward to completing the season with an astonishing amount of wins. Previous wins this year have included the IRC Mid Week Series, Jentex Trophy Race, Island SC Nab Tower Race, Royal Corinthian YC 'Tiny Mitchell Trophy" and Top Surveyors entry at the Little Britain Challenge Cup.

Laura Beavis, Marketing Assistant at Icom UK commented, "Peter has done a fantastic job skippering the Icom Assassin this season. The branding on the Stimson 42 is very eye-catching and Peter and his crew must be congratulated on their unbelievable number of wins."

Icom UK would like to congratulate Peter on some fantastic sailing this year!
