Next year, our Race Boat team are delivering a new format for Grand Prix Racing in the UK by launching a performance one design circuit. The annual series of SIX events will be purposely set for fun, fast competitive racing, utilising the strict MC38 class rules
Sam Pearson, our Race Boat Manager and the MC38 Class Director told us…
“The MC38 Grand Prix Circuit came about simply by listening to owners demands. Tight racing is clearly at the forefront of everyone’s mind when they hit the race course and this coupled with people’s desires to now go faster and faster, led us to select the MC38 as the weapon of choice. Building on the success of the 38 in Australia, the circuit is to be run with a close eye on costs, whilst ensuring QUALITY racing is provided and event profiles raised. “
The first boat arrived at Hamble Yacht Services on the 21st October and was immediately commissioned by Sam and a team of marine professionals, so that the test sails for interested parties could begin. Over a dozen appointments have already been made, demonstrating the enthusiasm with which the 38 is being received. After the first sea trials last Saturday, Nick Bonner a professional sailor who was on board throughout the day commented...
‘It’s awesome to sail a boat where everything just works. You’ve got TP52 technology in here and great performance for less than the price of a J-111, the One Design circuit just makes sense.’
