Zhik confirmed as Double Handed Figure of 8 Race Sponsor

RLR Yachting, as agents and distributors of Zhik products have confirmed their support for the forthcoming Double Handed Figure of 8 race.

This will be the third consecutive year that Zhik will be the title sponsor for this race which stands out as one of the most challenging events on its race calendar.

This demanding race requires a unique combination of skill, teamwork, communication, strategy, and endurance, as crews navigate their way through a figure-eight-shaped course, testing their abilities in both upwind and downwind conditions.

Last year’s race was down to just a two second advantage, as the winning boat – the J/99 Calypso, skippered by Seb Ripard and Fabio Galea, secured victory with a mere 2-second advantage over the First 45 Elusive 2, skippered the Podesta siblings, Christoph and Aaron Podesta.
