SinC Roue 20 Class Chester Race Week

Chester Race Week has announced registration for 2023. They sent along this fantastic shot of last year’s winner, Auster, in the Roue 20 class. The crew led by skipper Robert Merchant is clearly pretty happy with their performance as they receive their trophy and keeper ‘wrestling’ belt from Chester Yacht Club Commodore, David Creighton. Hard to top for a very happy winner shot.



The European portion of SailGP Season 4 got underway this weekend in Saint-Tropez, France. Having hit record breaking speeds last year on the Côte d’Azur, Phil Robertson and the Canadians were looking forward to this weekend of racing, but things did not turn out as hoped. A penalty in the pre-start of race one was a precursor of what was to come, and it proved difficult for the team to recover.

A collision with Spain early on in race one set the team back and translated into eight penalty points for the event and an additional four penalty points for the season.
