LET BATTLE COMMENCE

RolexCommodoresCup083006

A record-matching fleet is due to take to the water tomorrow for the first inshore races of the 2008 Rolex Commodores’ Cup. Organised by the Royal Ocean Racing Club, the event will see 45 yachts, divided into 15 three boat teams, representing six nations competing in what is the world’s premier event for cruiser racers. The crews, who are almost entirely amateur, will race over the next week on a mixture of courses: windward-leewards in the Solent, a long offshore and – new for this year – a race around the Isle of Wight.
