- Choosing a yacht from Sparks Life
Sparks Life invites you to take part in this exciting regatta. For the competition we choose the Beneteau Oceanis 46.1 with the First Line configuration. The carbon mast and low keel will allow this yacht not only to take part in any regatta, but also to take leading prizes in it. In January 2019 she was named European Yacht of the Year at the Flagship Night in Düsseldorf. I must say that this is a kind of “Oscar” in the world of courts.
There are 4 cabins on board. The yacht is equipped with an extended mast and increased sails (our choice is Aramidsport sails, additional Spinnaker A3 and Code 0). Numerous modern, innovative details of the vessel give it additional comfort and increase speed.
Our team will be led by an experienced skipper, RYA / MCA licensed, whose crew has taken the podiums several times. Therefore, we have an excellent chance of winning!
