CQS Racing’s 15-person crew will be braving the Atlantic to participate in the RORC Trans-Atlantic race which begins on Saturday November 25. The RORC 2,995 nautical mile Trans-Atlantic race will start from Marina Lanzarote to Grenada, rather than the BVI this year due to the devastation inflicted by multiple hurricanes.

Team CQS Racing is keen to help the local communities in this British territory (BVI) in line with the charitable ethos the team has had since its first race in November 2016 and has selected Team Rubicon to raise money for. Sir Michael Hintze, CQS’ Founder and CEO said “The crew has an exciting challenge ahead of them and I am very pleased we are also able to do something to help the BVI. Please help us make a difference.” 

Skipper, Ludde Ingvall added “We will have the chance to help support the Caribbean communities devastated by the recent hurricanes, by entering some of the events on their circuit. Our ethos has always been to give young up and coming sailors an opportunity and give back while competing.”

Team Rubicon, a British charity which provides disaster relief globally, presently have a team working in the BVI providing medical, reconstruction and multiple other services to help rebuild basic living standards to these devastated islands.
