If a Club or INDIVIIDUAL is looking to purchase a new Viper 640, now is a really good time.

As you may already know, the Viper 640 is manufactured by Rondar 2015 Opening Regatta FWYC (courtsey FWYC Members)Raceboats in England. With the Brexit vote back in June, the British pound dropped in value on the world currency markets.
At Rondar, we have always chosen to maintain price stability in US dollars for the US market, absorbing minor currency fluctuations up or down, as the British pound to the US dollar has been quite stable. However, this currency adjustment has been an extraordinary event. The British pound is beginning to rebound, but you can still take advantage of purchasing a new Viper 640 at a reduced cost. There may also be ‘loaner boats’ available for sale after the Viper 640 International Regatta in November. These boats will have been sailed for 5 days, and will come with all GYA package accessories & new sails.

In order to take advantage of the discount you must absorb the currency risk by pre-paying for your new Viper in full with your order. This Brexit currency discount is subject to change if the exchange rates do change appreciably, and we may revoke it entirely as conditions warrant.

USA Red Team wins XXX Trofeo Marco Rizzotti International Team Race Cup

The USA Red Team from Lakewood Yacht Club (GYA Club) in Seabrook, TX wins the XXX Trofeo Marco Rizzotti International Team Race Cup (June 3-5, 2016). They earned an invitation to compete in Venice, Italy by winning the USODA Team Race Mid-Winter Championship in January 2016.

The awards ceremony was pretty emotional for everyone in the audience and those watching the live stream, as they presented Team USA Red with the winning trophy. They were holding the American flag and their trophies while the National Anthem was playing and a dozen jets flew over…quite a  spectacular ceremony for these 13 & 14 year old sailors!
