The 2017 FAST40+ Circuit provides 30 days of thrilling yacht racing, at world famous regattas and new stand-alone FAST40+ events. As the top-of-the-bill class, racing in the FAST40+ fleet is on the wish list of many racing teams.

An exclusive FAST40+ Charter service is now available. The FAST40+ Class is both owner-driver and a mixture of pro-am crew; many teams can not compete at every event. This has created a wonderful opportunity, for teams outside of the class, to race charter and get a proper taste of the FAST40+ action.

Lucy Jones has been licensed by the FAST40+ Class Association to organise charter opportunities for FAST40+ owners. Lucy has extensive experience over many years, delivering high quality, and well managed, race charters throughout the UK, Europe and the Caribbean. Lucy has competed at prestigious inshore and offshore events and as a Yacht Master Ocean, has completed thousands of sea miles.
“Fantastic, close racing on great looking boats.” commented Lucy, summing up the virtues of FAST40+ Racing. “Chartering a FAST40+ will suit already established race teams that want to enjoy racing at its best and teams that are potentially interested in joining the class and buying a boat of their own in the future. Our main goal is to ensure that all parties are well-looked after and have a fantastic experience in the FAST40+ Class.”

The FAST40+ Class has been receiving a lot of enquiries from sailors, and from FAST40+ owners, who are interested in race charter for some events.” commented FAST40 Class President, Rob Greenhalgh. “Lucy has been successfully running race charters for many years. She has a reputation for attention to detail and comes highly recommended. The FAST40+ management team will continue to concentrate on delivering professional race management, whilst Lucy has all the skills to manage the charter opportunities. Speaking with several owners, they believe that race charters will hopefully insure the long term success of the class, by encouraging new teams to join the class.”
FAST40+ race boats for charter include KER40+ Invictus and GP42 42 South. For full information about all the charter opportunities:
