“ I first came to Cowes in 1994 racing an Etchells and I fell in love with Cowes and the class.” commented Feng Shui’s Anatole Masfen. “Cowes is the ‘Disneyland’ of yachting, it is where yacht racing began. I believe this is a very special place and the job that David Franks (Cowes Etchells Class Capitan) and his team have done, to invigorate the class, is very exciting and i am just glad to be part of it.”
The Etchells Worlds kicks off in just a couple of days.
