Halfway through the 2016 season the RC44's five stop international circuit has already seen the fleet of 11 boats battle it out in the crystal blue waters of Bermuda and compete for the World Championship title in Sotogrande, Spain. Next month the fleet will make its UK debut for the RC44 Portsmouth Cup, 13-17 July, where Forbesfone will keep the team connected on the water with the live GPS tracking system thanks to TracTrac and live racing blog, updating fans across the globe on all the action blow-by-blow.
From there the fleet will move on to the RC44 Cascais Cup, Portugal in September and finally wrap up the season at the RC44 Valletta Cup, Malta in November.
