Richard Loftus Desperado Swan 65 In Hit and Run at Cowes Week

A large Swan 65 called Desperado owned by businessman Richard Loftus was involved in a hit and run incident on the Sunday of Cowes Week.
Our yacht was approaching the start line of the days first race and was hit directly from behind by yacht Desperado.
The skipper of Desperado then gave us false information and so we are currently asking for information about the yachts owner.

Fortunately our yachts crew were all ok but very shaken. They have all given witness statements which we are passing to the MCA.

If you happened to see the event or know any information about Desperado Swan 65 based in Hamble we believe then do call. 

Update :-

The owner Richard Loftus has refused to pass on any insurance details and the repairs have cost us over £3000 as well as missing all our Cowes Week.
Our skipper suffered bruising as the bow of Desperado hit her whilst on the helm. We did not even receive an apology or any concern about her injuries. Disgraceful !
