2019 promises to be an exciting season for the Swan 45 Class. With revitalised and pro-active class management, Swan 45 racing will continue appeal to a broad range of yachtsmen. A fundamental philosophy exists within the class to constrain running costs and to reward owners with pleasurable competition. Strictly owner driven, with a limited number of professional sailors onboard and a limited stock of new sails allowed each season, the aim is to ensure racing is close and exciting. The Swan 45 Class benefits from its own PRO and, at each Class event, will race multiple Windward-Leeward races on dedicated courses.
