THE 2015 RC44 SAILING CHAMPIONSHIP TOUR !
The only wristwatch brand to ever produce timepieces that tell time by using liquids, HYT has an undeniable association with fluids and so, for its very first partnership, HYT chose full immersion of its « fluid DNA » to become the Official Timekeeper of the 2015 RC44 Championship Tour.
HYT CEO Vincent Perriard announced the first venture of the brand into the world of international Yacht Racing by joining with RC44 (Co-designed by five-time America’s Cup winner Russell Coutts and naval architect Andrej Justin).
HYT is celebrating this partnership by launching a limited edition series of watches specifically designed for the RC44 Class Association. Reflecting the nature of the Class, the watches will be the pinnacle of innovative engineering, high-tech materials, and beautiful design.
The ninth edition of the RC44 Championship Tour will make its debut in Malta's renowned capital Valletta, City of the Knights from the 25 – 29 March. The Class will go on to tour some of the finest sailing venues in Europe including a debut for Porto Cervo, Italy and the Swedish Island of Marstrand before rolling onto the Atlantic swell of Cascais, Portugal.
To finish off the season, the fleet will make their winter migration to Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands for the final event of the season in the turquoise waters of the central Caribbean Sea.
