Oyster Regatta Palma
— 13 Oct 2022
Rob has recently returned from the Oyster Yachts Regatta in Palma, always a great event. The three day programme was split into two round-the-can races on the first day, then a coastal race to Andratx on the second day, with a return passage on the final day.
Rob was delighted with the performance and general handling qualities of the 495, very quick upwind and just as sprightly downwind. Post-launch sailing trials are obviously important and helpful, but from a feedback perspective there is nothing like lining up with other boats. So from our point of view the Regatta was an especially good event.
