WRS Tech is based in between Portsmouth and Southampton in the South of the United Kingdom. WRS Tech benefits in being sandwiched between the UK’s two premier maritime cities and a short trip from London but the reason we are currently excited about our location is that we are near the ACWS taking place in Portsmouth this weekend!
The America’s Cup World Series is a racing circuit featuring the best sailors in the world, competing on foiling, wing-sailed 45ft catamarans. The America’s Cup World Series is the first stage of competition in the 35th America’s Cup and begins in the summer of 2015, culminating in the America’s Cup (Finals) in 2017 in Bermuda.
WRS Tech is full of avid sailors who manage to maximise the occasional bout of good weather and our location on the UK’s South Coast to enjoy the Solent and everyone in the office (Particularly the Marine and Shipbuilding divisions) has been excited about the Americas cup coming to Portsmouth since it was announced at the end of 2014 and there has been a lot of discussions with locally based clients and Marine Professionals about who has got what tickets and the best place to view the racing.
The Portsmouth events will encompass the dockyard, HMS Warrior and Victory, the Mary Rose Museum, the Spinnaker Tower, GunWharf Quays and Southsea Castle. The ACWS is a fantastic opportunity to Showcase Portsmouth and the Solent, which has unmatched yachting history to the world stage (weather permitting!) and hopefully a spring board for a British take over of the ACWS!
