Class40 day in Hamble

Save the date - 12th April

Wednesday March 19th 2014, Author: James Boyd, Location: United Kingdom

Hamble Yacht Services and the Ancasta Group’s Race Boat division is inviting all prospective Class 40 enthusiasts to join them for their open day on Saturday 12 April.

Understanding the pressure and requirements that serious race boat campaigns demand, Hamble Yacht Services has created an environment which fully accommodates their community of Class 40 owners and racers.

Working together with the Class 40 Association, the demo day is being arranged to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to experience the exhilaration of sailing in one of these racers, and as a completely free social event, will open up and establish contacts within the ever popular fleet.

Sam Pearson, Ancasta’s Race Boat Broker who sails professionally with the Class 40 told us that all parties agree in their efforts to ensure and allow the Class 40 to thrive: “It is imperative to share storage, training facilities and tools, but most importantly, experiences and obviously the moral support that bigger racing crews benefit from.”
