We’re delighted to announce that we have teamed up with solo sailor and 2010 double-handed Round Britain and Ireland winner Pip Hare in her quest to win the Mini Transat this year. Pip has already completed the gruelling 1,000 mile qualification course and has been building up some more mileage in the Royal Western Mini Fastnet race.

Pip has a great website where you’ll be able to follow her blog posts. Check it out at

Pip has chosen to race with new Barton blocks, rope clutches and K Cams for the Spinnaker pole adjuster. These have to be particularly light in weight but strong enough to take shock loads induced when careering downwind in excess of 16 knots!
