Cowes Week has always been popular for young competitors as it provides them with a perfect opportunity to realise their talent and helps to encourage our future sailing stars. Racing for the U25 Trophy gives the most amazing platform for them to compete on equal terms with sailors of all ages and abilities, from club to Olympic sailors.

Katy Baxter, MD of Montgomery Estate Planning, who is now based on the Isle of Wight said:

“I am keenly aware of how important our environment is and the need to preserve it carefully for future generations. Sailing is a great part of Island life and the Under 25 sailors represent the future of this exciting, healthy and eco-friendly sport.

“Montgomery Estate Planning is delighted to have sponsored the U25 trophy, and recognises the amazing teamwork of all involved, including families and friends, who helped and supported these sailors over the finish line.”
