Doublehanded Racing Double The Fun

With growing interest in solo and doublehanded racing, North Sails and Bluenose Yachts recently hosted a Shorthanded Racing Seminar. Over 130 people attended the event to learn from the impressive lineup of speakers, including Ken Read, Suzy Leech, Ellie Driver, and Glenn Walters. Topics included Ken Read’s keys to shorthanded racing success, race prep, selecting the right sail inventory, avoiding mistakes, overcoming challenges, youth initiatives, sailing with family, and division of responsibilities.

Managing Partner,

Bluenose Yachts and North Sails have worked closely together to optimize the Sun Fast 3300 for shorthanded racing, resulting in it being the most successful shorthanded boat in New England, with podium finishes in the Newport Bermuda Race, NYYC Annual Regatta, Bermuda Shorthanded Return, Ida Lewis Distance Race, New England Solo Twin, Block Island Race, Vineyard Race, and many more.

Using our collective knowledge and experience, we help our customers optimize their boats and win more races. Ken Read, who has won more doublehanded races in New England than any other skipper, has been instrumental in developing the sail inventory and deck layout for the 3300, and his valuable inputs benefit all our Sun Fast 3300 customers.

To experience the thrill of shorthanded racing on a purpose-built boat, please contact Jonathan Banks at [email protected] or (401) 855-0416 to learn more about chartering or buying a Sun Fast 3300 for the 2023 sailing season.
