Preview Round Four – Lendy Cowes Week

The FAST40+ Class is back in action from August 4-7 for Round 4 of the FAST40+ Class Race Circuit, as part of Lendy Cowes Week. Eight races are scheduled over four days of racing with windward leeward and round the cans races in the mix.

Last year’s Lendy Cowes Week Champion Girls on Film bids a welcome return to Peter Morton on the tiller. Morty is returning after a shoulder injury, which has kept him out of action for the the last three rounds of the FAST40+ Circuit. Girls on Film will be going for a hatrick of wins in the FAST40+ Class at the world famous regatta.

Niklas Zennstrom’s Rán VII currently leads the series, and is back competing at the famous regatta for the first time in many years. Bas de Voogd’s Hitchhiker and Filip Engelbert’s Elvis will hope to build on their best performances to date, coming second and third respectively, in last month’s HYS FAST40+ National Championship. Pace returns to action in the FAST40+ Class under the guidance of Volvo Round Ireland winner, Niall Dowling.

Action for the FAST40+ Class at Lendy Cowes Week is due to start at 1100 on Saturday 4th August. The first start of each day will be from the Black Group Start Line with one windward leeward race followed by a second daily race, which is likely to be a round the cans race with a Squadron Line finish.
