Fair winds and following seas Scaramouche

Scaramouche-fastnet-OYS-riggingGood luck to the crew of Scaramouche in the Rolex Fastnet Race which sets sail on Sunday 6th August 2017.

Back in early 2016, Mark Barwell Sales Director was listening to a talk from Greig City Academy students at Lymington Town Sailing Club and how 8 students from inner city London were preparing to take their Frers 45 Scaramouche, and be the first student led team to take on the Rolex Fastnet Race.

Safety is paramount for teacher Jon Holt. Following a survey of the rigging with OYS Service Agents Advanced Rigging, Ocean Yacht Systems donated all new standing rigging and associated fittings to the project.

The rigging was supplied in June 2016, and since then Scaramouche has gone on to qualify for the Rolex Fastnet Race, and we look forward to watching them set off of Sunday.

“We are proud to have been able to help such an inspiration group of students, we look forward to seeing them reach their goal. Fair winds and following seas Scaramouche,” comments Mark Barwell.

RIBELLE takes to the water


The latest yacht from Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design, RIBELLE, has just completed her first superyacht regatta and finished a very credible second place having been delivered to her owner in Monaco in spring 2017.

The Boat International Loro Piana Regatta in Porto Cervo was the first time RIBELLE, the 32.5m Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design, has been seen on the superyacht racing circuit and by many since her completion.

RIBELLE is equipped with OYS custom hydraulics and thrusters on board. Her hydraulic sail control cylinders designed specifically for this application, whilst the carbon / titanium bow and stern thrusters are lightweight helping to keep her at optimum racing weight without compromise. Perhaps the most talked about feature from OYS on board is the custom vang which is colour matched to her deck windows.

Ian Crowden, Technical Director at Ocean Yacht Systems was on board for the first regatta and commented, “Winning the first race of the regatta and finishing second in the fleet was a wonderful achievement for her first regatta. We look forward to seeing how she performs in Palma at the Supyeracht Cup in June.”

This is the second new build OYS have been specified as the OEM for the owner, having previously supplied to the award winning 50m Dubois Zefira.
