Pete Goss announces Fastnet entry in 'giant killer' SeaCart 30

Pete Goss has announced his entry into the Rolex Fastnet 2007 yacht race. The west country sailor will sail aboard his SeaCart 30 trimaranCornwall Playing for Successtogether with former Team Philips crew mates Paul Larsen and Andy Hindley

Goss is hoping that his lightweight high-performance trimaran will prove itself a ‘giant killer’ racing against maxi yachts such as Leopard and Alpha Romeo in the Fastnet. The team is trying to raise awareness and funds for the charity Cornwall Playing for Success, of which Goss is a founding trustee. He explained: ‘Last year we raised £40k for the charity, which uses sport to help those pupils identified by their schools in need of a boost to get back up to speed in numeracy, literacy and ICT, whilst raising their self esteem and motivation.’
