Mariska on target for the treble!

The first regatta of the 15-Metre Class 2016 season has just been completed in Puerto Sherry. The 4 active William Fife III designed gaff cutters raced in the Bay of Cadiz in fantastic conditions and brought over 60 competitive crew together to compete for the hotly contested end of season Trophy. With 3 regattas yet to play out it was the French owned and crewed 2013 and 2014 overall winner Mariska that took the event win with the British crewed ’15’ and 2012 overall winner, The Lady Anne coming in second. They were keenly pursued by the ‘King’s boat’ (of old) Hispania and the 2015 overall winner Tuiga owned by Monaco Yacht Club.

The Class are scheduled to meet again in Palma de Mallorca for the XXII Regata Illes Balears Classics (Club de Mar) from the 10th-13th August, then onto Sanremo on the Italian riviera from the 1st-3rd September before wrapping it up at Les Voiles de St Tropez from the 24th September to the 2nd October.
