The Oceanis 51.1 was awarded best boat in the “Cruising Yacht” category
The British Yachting Awards 2018 were held on Thursday 11 December in the exclusive surroundings of the Royal Thames Yacht Club in the Knightsbridge district of London. This ceremony was organized by the sailing magazines Yachts and Yachting, Sailing Today, and MUSTO, the technical clothing manufacturer.
For the first time, the public were the only ones allowed to vote for their favourite boat among those nominated in the 15 different categories.
The Oceanis 51.1 won the award in the “Cruising Yacht” category, ahead of the Dufour 460 L, the Hanse 458, the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 410 and the Southerly 480.
Since it was launched in 2017, the first model of the new generation of the Oceanis range is as successful as ever internationally and the 100th Oceanis 51.1 is about to leave the factory, before being delivered to its owner in Australia.
The sailing yacht will be on display at the Boot Düsseldorf show in January 2019.

The 19th annual Fox’s Yacht Sales Beneteau Owner’s Weekend was put in the diary in January and at that stage who knew how glamorous the day would be for sailing!
Pre-start manoeuvres mainly involved a game of dare as to who would be the first boat to tuck a reef in. In 18 knots of breeze and for the reach out to Pennyhole the majority of the fleet stuck with full sail and one very game competitor hoisted his furling asymmetric – he didn’t unfurl it!
The start was won by “Mr Blue Sky” who flew off like a frightened rabbit. “Viking Blue”, the biggest boat in fleet was an impressive sight charging through the fleet arriving at the first mark with a clear lead.
The first foul tide beat from Pennyhole to the Fox’s racing mark split the fleet, some going left looking for tidal shelter and some going right on a more making tack. The Oceanis 35’s relished the upwind and rounded Fox’s racing mark 1st, 2nd and 3rd on the water.
The downwind leg back to Pennyhole gave the crews a bit of a chance to re-hydrate and grab a sandwich whilst logging some impressive numbers in the SOG challenge for bragging rights in the bar! Meanwhile the breeze was increasing to over 20 knots.
The Oceanis 35’s rounded Pennyhole for the second beat pretty much together with “Vixen” just leading from “FiFi” and “Extra Old”. It was setting up nicely for a 3 boat match race at the front. Meanwhile there were battles aplenty throughout the fleet with the smallest boat, “Dotty”, gamely hanging on to the coat tails of some much bigger boats.
“Vixen” rounded Fox’s Racing mark just in front of “FiFi” and “Extra Old” with a three mile drag race back into the harbour to the finish. The rubber band holding these three together never seemed to get stretched despite furious trimming from all crews!
“Vixen” crossed the finish line first to a deafening silence. An infringement had been picked up by the on-water jury and they were therefore disqualified. “FiFi” were next over the line followed closely by “Extra Old”.
Once the handicaps had been applied the results were as follows –
1. FIFI Oceanis 35.1
2. DOTTY First 25.7
3. EXTRA OLD Oceanis 35.1
4. MR BLUE SKY First 310
5. SHAZAM First 27.7
A fantastic day on the water with some fabulous sailing followed by an excellent BBQ at Fox’s Yacht Club. It doesn’t get better!!!
