Preparations of the Clipper Marine sponsored Bavaria B/one for Cowes Week 2013 are well underway. 'Clipper Marine B/one' will compete in the 17 strong 'Sportsboat' Class at the world renowned regatta held between August 3rd and 10th. The 'Sportsboat' class will start every day on the 'The Squadron Line' at 11.15am, giving spectators and supporters a grandstand view of the exciting action at the start.
'Clipper Marine B/one' is being campaigned by good friends, Richard Root and Ollie Ophaus, along with Richard Tarr and 17 year old Alex Francis. The crew sailed together last year in the Quarter Ton class and are looking forward to some exhilarating down-wind action in the Bavari B/one sportsboat. Each day there will be a guest crew member, making an overall crew of 5 people.
The crew have been fairing the keel bulb, polishing the hull in and optimising the boat in preparation for the event, which starts on Saturday 3rd of August.
