Volvo Sailing Speed Challenge

Guess the fastest mode of sail to win a four ball at Wentworth

Who do you think will be the fastest round a ‘reaching course’ in the Solent, the Foiling Moth, Olympic windsurfer, Kitesurfer or an Open 60?

Team Volvo sailors are taking on the challenge to see who can win the Volvo Sailing Speed Challenge at Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week and with it a cheque for £1000 to a charity of their choice.

Join the competitors on the stage at The Parade Village in Cowes for their pre-race banter, racing kicks off at 17.00 on Monday 5th August.

Place your vote here on who you think has what it takes to be the first to cross the Royal Yacht Squadron finish line. If your sailor wins you will be entered into a prize draw to win a four ball at Wentworth Golf Club.
