World Match Racing Tour Comes To Hamble - 11-14 June 2015

winner of the World Match Racing Tour.
Ian is top ranked at the Royal Southern
Match Cup to be held from 10 to 14 June at
Hamble, the first ever World Match Racing Tour
event in the UK, and he will be taking on some
of the fastest rising stars on the match racing
circuit, racing in a fleet of J/80s.

We consider effective financial management to be
critical to our continuing success.

The Harken May Regatta began on the Saturday (May 9th) with grey skies and
30-knot gusts from the western Solent, and race officers took
the prudent decision to postpone racing in the hope conditions
In the event, while the solid breeze never eased off enough for racing in
White Group, the larger yachts in Black were rewarded for their
patience with a single race and even some afternoon sunshine.
By contrast, Sunday saw near ideal conditions which allowed an
expanded programme of four races in White Group and the planned
two in Black.
