Cowes Week Charter Offer

From Ross Walker, who races as "Brown Teal" and won Cowes Week last year.

For the past 14 years we have chartered a J 109 for Cowes Week. We would like to charter one for 2022 but our traditional sources have dried up. Would a J/109 owner be prepared to rent his yacht? We have our own sails and would pay a fee plus insurance costs and costs such as slip and scrub. We typically finish in the top six overall and in 2021 we won the class. “ Please contact rossjames.walker@btinternet.com if you are interested.
