Maybe Sailing is a non-profit organisation providing sailing voyages from short sails of 1-4 days to longer sails including taking part in the prestigious Tall Ships Races annually. Maybe Sailing provides sail training opportunities to young people all over the UK and Europe.

CVS PentaPower were contacted by the Tall Ship Maybe when disaster struck on the first leg of the Tall Ship Races 2016 from Antwerp to Lisbon after her Volvo Penta TMD120A failed in the English Channel and bad weather conditions made it impossible to enter the Port of Dover. As soon as she dropped anchor off the coast of Deal that night our engineer was ready to board and carry out investigations.

The fuel injection pump was found to be at fault and was removed, repaired by a local company, serviced ready to be refitted the following afternoon getting Tall Ship Maybe back into the race, albeit slightly later than planned!

“Thank you so much for your fantastic service and help over the last few days. Maybe has now crossed the start line albeit 12 hours late!!! I am hoping we have an extension and are still in the race and have not received a penalty for late crossing of the line!!

“The service from CVS has been 1st class. Engineers were on time and nothing was too much trouble! The problems were identified quickly and solutions suggested. CVS couldn’t have done more to help us, going out of their way to ensure that the problem was resolved within an incredibly tight timescale. Thank you for your excellent service”
