On may 21st, 22nd and 23rd, 2 Diam24 od’s wll be available in Weymouth on the south coast of England for three days of trials open to all public. The main beach of this famous coastal town is a particularly good spot to discover this family dayboat.
The following weekend and 15 miles to the east, 5 teams will participate in the « Poole Regatta » a major interseries event at the start of the season. This will be the first ever race for the Diam24 ods across the Channel….. but not the last !
Amongst the pioneers, the Team Concise and recent owner, Philip Cotton and his team, (he first test sailed his trimaran end of march during the Spi Ouest France) This british racer has consistently helped and advised the ADH Inotec team toward the establishment of the trial sessions in Weymouth and the participation of the Diam 24 od fleet in the Poole Regatta.
Philip Cotton is trying to create a great emulation around these two events in order to motivate a maximum of people around this three hulled, one design boat, and help to constitute a British Class association next year.
Two to three UK events should welcome the Diam24 ods between august and october 2016, before a much fuller calendar of events to be set up for next year.
