Harken are the proud new sponsors of RS800 Reunion Regatta and day three of RS800 and RS700 Volvo Noble Marine National Championship in association with Hyde Sails.

RS800 Reunion Regatta

To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the RS800 class, Eastbourne Sovereign SC will be hosting the RS800 Reunion Regatta and Anniversary Dinner, open to past, current and new RS800 sailors of all nationalities, on Saturday 7th September 2019. The one-day Reunion Regatta has 3 races scheduled, 2 to count, but teams also count up to 20 points according to the last year they competed in an RS800 UK Nationals, levelling the playing field for those whose RS800 days are but a distant happy memory. True performance equalisation! So dust off your trapeze harness, beg borrow or buy a boat and come down to Eastbourne for a fantastic gathering.

The Reunion Regatta is run as part of the UK Volvo Noble Marine National Championship (5th- 8th September) and you can enter just for the Saturday, for the weekend or for the full four-day Nationals. Tickets are available separately for the Anniversary Dinner where lots of lovely Harken prizes will be awarded.

The Notice of Race for the Reunion Regatta, along with online entry and all the details for the RS800 Nationals can be found here.

Harken's blocks, travellers, furling systems, winches, and hydraulics can be found aboard everything from the smallest dinghies to the largest mega-yachts. Built for both racers and cruisers, the hardware we produce is relied upon by club sailors just as much as the best sailors in the world, competing in events such as the Olympics, the America's Cup, the Volvo Ocean Race or the club race on a Sunday morning. Harken deck fittings are supplied on all new RS800s and RS700s. If you have any questions about our hardware, do not hesitate to contact the Tech Team on or 01590 689122

A general reluctance in the dinghy park to leave the shade Another glorious day in Torbole. It didn't take long this morning for the heat to build up in the sun, the only respite a moderate Peler.
