After Twilight Racing on 6th March Rear Commodore Sailing, Hylton Hale announced that Phillippa Hutton Squire will be sailing under the RCYC Burgee in the Normandy Channel Race. Hylton handed over an RCYC burgee to Phillippa to fly proudly from her Open 40 while crossing the Channel.
This race starts on the 14th of April from Caen in Northern France across the English Channel, around the Isle of Wight, around Lands End, round the Tuskar Rock of South east Ireland, round the famous Fastnet Rock, around Guernsey and through the Alderney and then a race back to Caen. A 1000nm race.
Phillippa has yet to announce who she is sailing this double handed challenge with, so we will be following her journey carefully.
Good Luck Phillippa, we are very proud to have you flying our burgee over in Europe and you have our full support. For more information about the race go to www.normandy-race.com
Phillippa will be sending us her links and website very soon. Go Girl!
