WIND-RUNNER

W H A T I S  I T ?

A new concept for corporate yacht racing is coming to the Solent in March 2018. Teams of eight will race identical yachts across three different race courses, as each yacht race finishes two of the crew from each boat will disembark and run three different run courses. Times will then be combined, and at the end we will end up with the quickest team.
