Barton Marine has been working closely with top J/80 team ‘Joystick', helping them to prepare for a busy campaign season, which kicked off this month with the Warsash Spring series in the Solent.
Owners Victoria Gregory and Rob Larke and their ace team successfully cleaned up the Hamble winter series last year in their new boat. Team manager and top crew member Ben Duke has made some useful and practical modifications to make the boat easier to sail, one of which was to fit the Barton Boomstrut for ultimate boom and mainsail control. Using the 44030 model fitted with 14mm rods, Ben hopes to improve the team's performance even further and achieve even more impressive results this season.
We will be updating readers with ‘Joystick's' progress this season as we follow their build up to the National championships in June and July World championships being held this year in Spain.
