Stoneways VPRS National Championships 2021

We are very pleased to be sponsoring the Stoneways Marine VPRS National Championships on the 28th and 29th August 2021 at Lymington Town Sailing Club.

The Velocity Prediction Rating System (VPRS) is rapidly growing in popularity due to its simplicity of using a conventional set of measurements and low entry cost. An annual rating certificate costs a mere £20. The principal of the VPRS is to rate a boat based on its performance potential and its use has meant easier race scoring, resulting in more diverse and appealing racing fleets. The system is now used across the South Coast of the UK, in parts of Europe and South America having developed considerably since its initial introduction by Poole Yacht Racing Association in 2010.

Keith Lovett, Managing Director & Senior Underwriter at Stoneways Marine said, “As an avid yacht racer myself and knowing so many who compete amongst the VPRS fleet, it is a pleasure to be able to support the 2021 VPRS National Championship. After such turbulent times I think everyone has been itching to get back out racing and we are keen to help make the Nationals of 2021 as memorable as we can.
