Ebury is making its debut in the realm of competitive sailing by backing the Fandango 300 crew, now sailing under the Ebury Sailing Team banner.

et to compete in a series of roughly ten Mediterranean regattas through to October, the Ebury Sailing Team is geared up for an eventful season.

Under the experienced guidance of skipper Julio Bernardeau, the Ebury Sailing Team is charting a course to participate in several prestigious Mediterranean regattas from June to October. Highlights include Trofeo SM La Reina in Valencia, the Tabarca Regatta in Alicante, Palma de Mallorca’s Copa del Rey Regatta, Torrevieja’s Crossing to Cabo Roig, and Cartagena’s Punta Este Trophy and Juan Fernández Regatta.

Luis Merino, Ebury’s Country Manager for Spain, stated, “We’re proud to support the Ebury Sailing Team. Their commitment and achievements reflect the values at the heart of Ebury, and we’re looking forward to a successful season together.”

About the Ebury Sailing Team:

Formed in 2010 as the Fandango Sailing Team by a group of sea-loving friends from Murcia with a competitive streak, the group, now the Ebury Sailing Team, has been a strong contender in national sailing competitions. In 2015, project manager Julio Bernardeau Navarro joined, steering the team to new heights.

The crew’s vessel of choice is the “Fandango 300,” a robust ARC40 class sailboat crafted by the French Archambault shipyards.. Measuring just under 12 metres with a beam of 3.75 metres, a 2.50-meter draft, and a weight of 6,200 kilos, it’s engineered for speed, especially in favourable winds.

The team, which has already secured placements in national and international contests, recently earned second place in the 2023 ORC Double Handed World Championship with a DK46. This achievement was a game-changer, drawing the attention of sponsors and enabling the team to invest in additional resources and training.

Julio Bernardeau, the director of the project, remarked, “Ebury’s sponsorship is a significant boost for our team. With their support, we’re poised to reach new heights and are excited to repay their trust with wins in the upcoming races.”
