Competing for the first time
Competing for the first time in the regatta was the Neo 495 class which had two new entries. Alain Inzerlac, the designer of the boat, came all the way from the South of France to compete. “It is great to be here this weekend. This boat was built in 2005 and is designed especially for disabled people to race,” he explained. “I have really enjoyed sailing here at Rutland Water and it has been a fantastic opportunity to introduce people to my boat”.
