Recap from Day #2 – World Match Racing Tour: Day 2 Recap and Results

Spectators will enjoy watching the sheer power of the M32 catamarans as they skip over the water with their helmeted crews hiking out on “racks” mounted outboard of the hulls.

The event also features live play-by-play commentary as well as music, food, family lawn games, a hospitality tent, and an M32 for kids to experience what it’s like onboard. The event is open to the public, with no admission fee and free parking.
