The Stoneways Marine VPRS National Championship is to be held at Lymington Town Sailing Club on the 28th and 29th August 2021. Make sure to save the date in your diary so you can join a weekend of competition on the water followed by friendly post racing socials with like-minded sailors.

The 2021 Championship is sponsored by Stoneways Marine, a leading yacht and marine trade insurance provider. Based on the ethos of providing the highest levels of service, care and expertise, Stoneways offer insurance solutions for mariners from mariners and are often able to provide cover when others can't.

Keith Lovett, Managing Director & Senior Underwriter at Stoneways Marine said, "As an avid yacht racer myself and knowing so many who compete amongst the VPRS fleet, it is a pleasure to be able to support the 2021 VPRS National Championship. After such turbulent times I think everyone has been itching to get back out racing and we are keen to help make the Nationals of 2021 as memorable as we can."

The Velocity Prediction Rating System (VPRS) is rapidly growing in popularity due to its simplicity of using a conventional set of measurements and low entry cost. An annual rating certificate costs a mere £20. The principal of the VPRS is to rate a boat based on its performance potential and its use has meant easier race scoring, resulting in more diverse and appealing racing fleets. The system is now used across the South Coast of the UK, in parts of Europe and South America having developed considerably since its initial introduction by Poole Yacht Racing Association in 2010.

It is not too late to get a VPRS rating for the championship and full details can be found at www.vprs.org. For all your 2021 yacht insurance needs, contact the Stoneways team on 03333 609 886 or visit www.stoneways.co.uk.
