Ancasta Yacht Brokers, who have west country offices in Falmouth, Mylor and Plymouth have come onboard as co-sponsor, together with Jagermeister UK, importers of the iconic spirit.

The IRC rule is the leading handicap system worldwide, and grand prix events such as the Rolex Sydney-Hobart and Commodores Cup race are run under using the system.

20 teams are expected to contest the regatta, including sportsboats, J-boats, and Half Tonners. The local J111 'Black Dog' and Half Tonners 'Miss Whiplash' and 'Per Elisa' will be among the favourites.
