Match Racing and Sail Training Fleets
Bakewell-White Yacht Design are the only design office to feature more than one fleet on the World Match Tour, and our fleets feature at the two most spectacular and highest earning events – the Monsoon Cup and the Korean Match Cup.
The Foundation 36 was designed in 1995 to create a new fleet for the inaugural World Match Racing Championships held in Perth, Western Australia. The original fleet are now used for the Monsoon Cup in Malaysia, whilst the fleet in Perth has developed into a thriving club racer fleet of some 40 boats.
The Korean Match 36 was designed to provide a fleet for the newest event on the circuit offering the biggest purse. The purpose of this fleet was to provide a state of the art match race yacht that is media friendly, and also to provide a showcase for the fledgling Korean Marine Industry. This is the first modern yacht to be built in Korea.
The design brief for the Busan 30 was very similar to the KM36 only this time it was to provide a vehicle for the Korean round of the World Women’s Match race circuit and a chance to display the skills of the Busan province.
The Bakewell-White 8 is a sail training and youth match race yacht developed recently for the combined yacht clubs of Western Australia and already there is developing a keen inter-club rivalry on the Swan River.
