Re 29er Nats.
If anyone wants to change entries or change helm/crew please tell Lisa as we need to sort all the registration docs and calculate the initial seedings. All of which takes considerable time.
Technically we can accept changes at the organisers discretion. Though after tonight we will be somewhat less inclined to say yes to changes as it creates extra work for the organisers.
Please do email Lisa with any changes ASAP. Thank you in advance.
42 British Sailors travelled to Medemblik for the 2016 World Championships racing in a fleet of 228 boats. The top 20 places comprised 15 different Nationalities showing how competitive the fleet has become with many returning older sailors swelling the entry.
Congratulations to Crispin Beaumont and Tom Darling who sailed an outstanding series to take the Bronze medal. They were also the 2nd Youth sailors overall. This was the first overall podium for GBR in 8 years - we look forward to seeing GBR 3 in action on UK waters.
Congratulations also to Hannah Bristow and Emily Covell who took 4th all girls. Full results below.
