Rambler 88 joins AAR fleet
The Atlantic Anniversary Regatta (AAR) is proud and happy to welcome a new entry among the 30-strong fleet of the AAR: George Davids Juan K designed canting keel sloop “Rambler 88” just entered the race and looks like a prominent contender for both line honours and handicap victory. Owner George David returns to NRV-organised Atlantic racing after having won the HSH Nordbank Blue-Race 2007 with his 90 ft “Rambler”. “Rambler 88” just took line honours in this year’s “Rolex Fastnet Race” and established a monohull record within the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC) 2016.
