Big Classic Friday featuring IRC Zero Class including Spirit Yachts, sponsored by OneSails

This year's Hamble Classics Regatta (September 20-22) has 'Big Classic Friday' added to the weekend programme and welcomes OneSails, the international sailmaking group with UK lofts at Hamble Point Marina and Suffolk Yacht Harbour, as the Race Day Sponsor.

Big Classic Friday offers racing for larger Classic and Spirit of Tradition yachts, with separate class starts for 'IRC Zero' including Spirit Yachts rating 1.050 and above, pre-1971 yachts of length on deck 15 metres and above, and International Rule yachts, to include the 8-Metre class and above. There will be separate prizes for Friday's racing and overall prizes for the regatta.

Commenting on behalf of OneSails GBR, Peter Kay, principal at the Hamble Point Marina loft remarked: "I am delighted to have OneSails involved with the Hamble Classics Regatta as is John Parker at the OneSails loft at Suffolk Yacht Harbour. John has a strong connection with Ipswich based Spirit Yachts and together we supply a wide range of racing and cruising sails to classic yachts of all types".

On behalf of Hamble Classics, Event Director Jonty Sherwill commented: "I am very pleased to welcome Peter, John and the OneSails brand to the Hamble Classics and also grateful to Sean McMillan of Spirit Yachts for asking for more Spirit racing! I think Friday 20th September promises to be a spectacular occasion and our aim is to build this regatta day for future years to attract other big classic yachts with an alternative venue to the Med' for some late season racing.
