On Monday 15th August, which is exactly 51 days from today, the 12th Half Ton Classics Cup will start on the Solent, organized by RORC Cowes and the Half Ton Class Europe (HTCE).

Today, the Half Ton Class Europe is proud to announce that the Antwerp-based shipping company Fast Lines Belgium has stepped on board as main sponsor of the event.

Founded in 1991 the Fast Group is a complete logistic service provider giving their customers "Sofa Style Service", operating a fleet of 5 boxshaped coastal vessels with a cargo capacity ranging from 3.000 to 3.500 Ton, allowing most types of breakbulk cargo to be shipped conveniently, safely and cost-effectively. Because they are shallow drafted and suitable for river trade these vessels are able to discharge 40-50 kilometers inland from the normal larger ports on the main coastline(s).

The Half Ton Class Europe is looking forward to combine their passion for sailing vintage amateur crewed yachts with FAST's key values of loyalty, communication, environmentally friendly multimodal transport and passion for the sea in general.

The HTCE organizes the Half Ton Classics Cup since 2003. The event has been hosted in various European ports like Nieuwpoort (2003-2009-2015-2018), Dinard (2005), Dublin (2007), Cowes (2011), Boulogne-sur-Mer (2013), St-Quay-Portrieux (2014), Falmouth (2016), and Kinsale (2017).

The Half Ton Classics Cup will take place in Cowes from 14-19th August 2022. The regatta week is jointly organized by RORC and the Half Ton Class Europe.
