A RACING yacht has completed an extensive refit ahead of this weekend’s Solent regatta.

The 5 West TP52 had her mast down and keel off during the refit, which was carried out in a boat shed at Endeavour Quay in Gosport, where she is based.

The refit was led by boat captain Simon Clarke and began in January.

She took to the Solent last weekend in 50 knot winds for test.
