To The Front.
Every morning the questions await:
Can it be lighter?
Does that add line speed?
Will it be flawless under higher load?
Here is where the answers play out.
At The Front…where we must be.
No end to the commitment.
Waitemata Harbour played host to fast and furious racing last week for the 2019 RNZYS Nespresso Youth International Match Racing Cup supported by Harken.
At the front, there is no playbook. See the full story behind Harken’s partnership with Gitana Team and their Ultime trimaran Maxi Edmond de Rothschild.
“The Harken” as it’s known is one of the premier events for up and coming match racers. Racing for the Rockin’ Robin Trophy begins on November 22nd at the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club in Sydney, Australia.
Getting to the Front…
Long before start ups were called startups, Harken began after hours, with a single idea that turned into a breakthrough. Olaf and Peter didn’t set out to transform our sport. They just wanted to make some equipment that helped the best sailors extend the possible. When they arrived at the front we were along for the ride. And what a ride it’s been.
