As the 2012 Olympics approach and with the Olympic Torch arriving in the UK today (18th May), it has been confirmed that the Torch will be coming here to Fox’s Marina on Thursday the 5th of July and being taken by boat to the Ipswich Docks.
Our hope is that the Torch will be carried on a recently delivered Beneteau Swift Trawler 44 (as above).
This would tie in nicely with Beneteau being chosen suppliers for the support, VIP and start/finish boats that are being used in Weymouth for the Olympic and Paralympic Sailing events.
The range will be represented in Weymouth by the Swift Trawler 44s and 34s, The Antares 880 and Barracuda 9 and the Flyer GT44. In total 23 Beneteau Power boats will be officially supporting the Olympic Sailing program.
