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.
