The RS21 UK & Ireland Class Association proudly announces Harken UK as an Official Partner for the upcoming 2024 RS21 UK & Ireland Cup. This partnership brings together Harken UK's top-tier marine hardware solutions with the fastest growing one design keelboat class in the World.

The collaboration kicks off with the much-anticipated Harken UK Dock Party on 19 April at Hamble. Open to sailors, industry partners, and enthusiasts, the dock party will follow Day 1 of the RS21 Cup 2024, with stories of on-water battles and discussions of the year ahead all hosted by Harken UK at the Royal Southern Yacht Club.

2023 was a year of remarkable achievements for the RS21 UK & Ireland Class. The National Championships saw an impressive fleet of 25 boats. This turnout not only exceeded expectations but also surpassed the participation in established classes like the J70 and SB20, marking a significant milestone in just the second year of the RS21 Class.

In 2024 Harken UK is not just about the best Hardware; they're also gearing up to participate in the Cup, demonstrating their support for the RS21 community. This dual role as a partner and competitor emphasizes their commitment to advancing the sport and enriches the competitive landscape of the Cup.

"Harken UK represents the very best! As a Class we are so looking forward to growing the connection between our members and one of the best marine hardware suppliers in the world. Their equipment makes sailing at the highest level not only possible but a real pleasure. We can't wait to get started on the 19th April!" Nick Redding - RS21 International Class Manager
