Jobey Ashcroft, the UK first winner of the Time Chase event of the season

Jobey Ashcroft is a novice who won the Havana House UK 2023 Time Chase event in Hove. The first official time of the CSWC season 2023 is 1 hour and 7 minutes and 32 seconds. The CSWC Top 20 list is now open and will be published soon. Even though the inaugural Time Chase event was scheduled to take place in Italy, the United Kingdom took the initiative this time and hosted the first of the season.

The United Kingdom has risen to the top of the CSWC rankings. Sarah Saunders performed a miracle there by promoting the CSWc and the idea behind it. She was successful in conveying the thrill of the CSWc to UK cigar enthusiasts, who enthusiastically welcomed the notion of the slow smoking challenge. - Marko Bilic, CSWC Founder

The first Time Chase of the season was a nail-biter, and it foreshadows what we may anticipate this season: high stakes. When you consider that these competitors are all newbies, the winning time was fantastic - Jobey pushed cigar to 1 hour 7 minutes and 32 minutes, and Josh came in second with 1 hour 7 minutes and 19 seconds. Sarah Saunders, CSWC official judge, provided a terrific competition.
