Rob Butler & Team Touch2Play

Thursday May 24th, 2018 - Kingston, ON

It’s been a busy month for the Touch2Play team, competing in Les Voiles de St Barth at the beginning of April (14th-20th), followed by the Antigua Sailing Week (April 28th - May 4th), the crew has been giving it their all.

The team lead by Rob Butler from the Collingwood Yacht Club, comprises a crew of 9 sailors, including Canadians; Peter Berridge, Troy Farncombe, and Ken I’Anson.

Racing on a Reflex 38, the Canadians, Americans and Trinidadian, raced against strong international competition, and through some challenging weather. This did not stop the crew from placing 3rd overall in both events.

Results can be found here for Les Voiles de St Barth and here for the Antigua Sailing Week.

As the temperature rose, so did the results. Finn sailor, Tom Ramshaw, proved his strength in the 3rd round of World Sailing’s 2018 World Cup Series in Hyeres, France. Racing in a competitive fleet of 44 boats, Tom was able to finish 16th overall! See results here.
