COWES – TORQUAY 2017
The Hendricks 55 has been retro-fitted with Ullman Echelon seats which offer great comfort for the crew at high speeds. In the recent race Cowes – Torquay the H55 finished second into Torquay having run at speeds approaching 100 knots. Markus Hendricks, the throttleman said “The new Ullman Echelon seats gave me a great sense of security and absorbed the highest shock loadings really well during the race”.
