Where you'll find the Harken Tech Team in 2019 © Harken UK

This year, the Harken Tech Team will be back on the road visiting regattas and working with local chandleries to supply technical support and advice to sailors at these events, to make sure you don't miss a minute of sailing.

Our first stop will be the RORC Easter Challenge, where the Regatta Van will be present to help with any trouble-shooting your hardware might need as the new season begins.

We will then be visiting the Nacra 17, 49er & FX Europeans at the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, to support the world class sailors racing in the fastest Olympic dinghy classes in the run up to Tokyo 2020 selection.

The van will then head up to Scotland for the Scottish Series regatta at the end of May. This is one of Scotland's largest yachting events and the Tech Team will be onsite to provide technical support to competitors.

Next, it is back down south and to the Isle of Wight for the van, which will be in Cowes for the start of the Fastnet Race and for Cowes Week a few days later. Make sure to find the van for any last-minute help or advice you need before the Fastnet and throughout Cowes Week.

Finally, at the end of the summer, the van will be in Dartmouth for the Dartmouth Royal Regatta Sailing Week. The van will be working with local chandleries to support the competitors at the event.

If you are planning on visiting any of these events, make sure you come and say hi!
