The boat was conceived in 2007 and now attracts some of the world’s leading business minds as their owner/drivers along with the top sailors in the world. The Tour pits people who know what it takes to succeed against one another over six events at exceptional sailing venues around the world.
Although one of most competitive classes on the international yacht racing circuit, the RC44 class is also one of the most friendly and welcoming.
Logistics’ couldn’t be made easier, with the boats fitting into their own 40 foot container to be shipped around the world. Anyone interested in becoming involved should contact firstname.lastname@example.org
