The format for the event will see sailors competing in a number of the best-ranked double handed races throughout the year combined into one season long series.
28 teams have already entered the series, including event founder and B&G ambassador Henry Bomby, alongside Shirley Robertson, “Its great to be working with B&G for the UK Double Handed Offshore Series. Not only is it the best gear, but they are so active with the Double Handed Community, offering support and running educational webinars that allows all the teams to get the best out of their instruments, it makes a real difference.”. Henry will be racing on a SunFast3300 kitted out with the latest B&G electronics.
