today is yesterday

Ah yes, the second punch of the 1/2 – 1/4 ton punch is just about here…
A fleet of 23 exquisitely prepared classic race boats – along with some of the world’s best sailors – have gathered in Cowes for the 13th edition of the revived Coutts Quarter Ton Cup.
With four countries represented, plus visitors from Scotland and Jersey, it will again be an international affair. As ever, there’s a diverse variety of sailors, ranging from members of Ben Ainslie’s 2017 Land Rover BAR America’s Cup team, through seasoned trans-Atlantic solo racers, to long-standing Solent gurus. However, parachuting in a team of hot-shot experts is no guarantee of winning this event – it’s often the crews that have practiced and raced together over a longer period that have the consistency to come out on top.
Look for an interview right here with Louise Morton, who has won the event for the past three years in a row, very soon.
