James Fox is to sail a 5.5 metre catamaran in the 2016 Stockholm Archipelago RAID in which 26 teams from Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, South Africa, the United States and Sweden race between 36,000 islands between 25 and 28 August.
The race starts and finishes at Saltsjobaden close to Stockholm. There are two races a day, with a stop for lunch, and the competitors will sail between 50 and 100 miles a day, depending on the wind strength.
James is sailing with Ben Clothier in one of two British entries. All the boats are F18 catamarans.
They finished 13th overall.
