The fleet

Racing at this year’s Candy Store Cup was split into three categories, with the 37.3 metre Action, the 32.5 metre Sunleigh and the 41.55 metre J class yacht Ranger contesting Class A.

Action came out on top in her class and tactician Ian Walker was full of praise for the format. “I’ve really enjoyed this regatta,” he said. “I love that the boats are so close together on the docks here, there is lots of hospitality in a relaxed atmosphere, and obviously Newport is a beautiful place to be this time of year. The fact that the Candy Store Cup is smaller and more intimate is its unique selling point.”
