Don’t miss Musto’s Pimp My Ride competition winners training with a brand ambassador out on the Solent. And if you entered the second competition, see if it’s your name that’s announced as a winner straight after.

The prize winners from the second competition (now closed) will get the opportunity to tour the Vestas 11th Hour Racing VO65 as they prepare for the Rolex Fastnet Race. And as proud sponsors of the Under 25s, prize-giving for Musto’s Pimp Your Ride competition will also be taking place. Stick around for the Overall Prize Giving and music from local artists.
Following on from the Triple Crown Around the Island Race the VOR boats will then take part in the Rolex Fastnet as a prelude to the Volvo Ocean Race 17/18. This will provide fans with an early form guide, as the teams tackle one of the most revered and feared tests in sailing.
