Super Spars to equip Steve Smith Round UK Dinghy Sailing Challenge
Super Spars, the World's Number 1 Performance Dinghy Spar manufacturer, today announced their sponsorship of the Steve Smith Round UK Dinghy Sailing Challenge.
Simon Bevan MD of Super Spars said, "Steve's plan to sail as fast as possible around the UK caught my imagination, and we at Super Spars decided to help him with his attempt by developing and providing a carbon rig to suit his boat." Steve Smith said "I was absolutely delighted when Simon offered to help my campaign, I always wanted to rig the boat with
carbon spars to save the weight aloft, and to have the top supplier of carbon spars join with the campaign is fantastic."
Steve is planning to race the OCR1 dinghy around the UK setting off this August in an attempt to set a record passage time for a dinghy. Steve is hoping to set a blistering pace and complete the task in 16 days, weather permitting. The dinghy is equipped to sail through the night to enable Steve to sail extend hours when the conditions are right. The OCR1 is a new dinghy, designed and built over the last 4 years by Steve Smith especially for this record attempt.
