Hannah Diamond and Henry Bomby will campaign one of the new Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300s
Hannah Diamond and Henry Bomby will campaign one of the boats, working alongside Jeanneau to finalise the detailing and optimisation prior to full production starting in the autumn.
“The new Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300 is designed by Daniel Andrieu and Guillaume Verdier and is a balanced and versatile boat optimized for IRC,” commented Nigel Colley, Sea Ventures MD.
“We are delighted to be supporting The Offshore Academy and such talented British sailors as Hannah and Henry – the Sun Fast 3300 was designed with the intent to be raced double handed and so it will provide a good test bed for their campaign.”
He added: “This is the first time we have had a UK based Jeanneau professional ‘works’ team’.
“The knowledge and development the campaign will undergo will significantly benefit current and future Sun Fast customers in terms of training, development and performance.”
Charles Darbyshire, Offshore Academy director, said: “Having a manufacturer works team allows The Offshore Academy to bring together current partners and leading industry suppliers to support Henry and Hannah in this exciting campaign, whether testing new products and ideas or simply long-term testing of existing equipment.
“The link with the factory is a significant development in the sport.”
