The development of the double handed racing scene is proceeding at an ever increasing pace as the popularity of this racing format spreads and gathers momentum
The concept and interest in Double Handed racing may have started with the possible advent of a double handed offshore class in the forthcoming French Olympics in 2024, but since has taken on a life of its own both here in the UK and elsewhere in Europe, America and Australia.
With the formation of the UK Double Handed Association and the very positive support of the RORC there is now a season of events planned which will allow for close and competitive racing. This will culminate in this years Fastnet race has 89 entries in the double handed class of which 15 boats are Sunfast 3300s with a further 13 sunfast 3200s and 3600s.
This is going to be a very interesting race indeed this year with a very strong field of professional and very experienced amateur shorthanded specialists.
