Corsair’s S. German Dealer races in the Round’ Britain & Ireland 2014!

Hello Corsair Team!

I will celebrate 30 years of Corsair and 15 Years of Corsair Germany as follows:

I am sailing in the Round’ Britain and Ireland double handed Yacht Race as crew on a Corsair 28EC #256 “Hikarii” with Skipper/Owner Berk Plathner http://rwyc.org/rbandi/

Started by the Royal Western in 1966, the Round Britain and Ireland is one of the International classics of short-handed sailing, and over the years has attracted the great names. The course is clockwise around all of Great Britain and Ireland, and there are compulsory stops of 48 hours at Kinsale, Barra, Lerwick and Lowestoft where the hospitality is legendary. It is always a terrific test of endurance and seamanship and not for the faint hearted.

There is also a C31 in the round the island race as well with an Australian on board.

As this can be a very tough race it will not be easy to contact me personally. The start is on Sunday, 1 June 2014 at 12:00 British Summer Time (UT + 1). On the above link you will find a tracking and we have an active AIS which you can follow on www.marinetraffic.comWerner!
