Paul Jefferies , Chair of the UK D-Zero Class Associaiton says:

We are delighted that have stepped in to sponsor what will be our main event this year. In these unprecedented times we appreciate the trading environment has been very difficult so for them to find the resources to sponsor us is amazing. We know that most of our sailors are just keen to get out and get some racing in next weekend but having some prizes on the table adds an extra attraction.
