Congratulations to our new World Champions!!
Counting 6 firsts and 2 seconds all I can say is simply awesome...
Worthy Champions Tim Harrison and Johnny Ratcliffe!
Roll on Melbourne in 2015 and a massive massive thank you to all the volunteers, staff, and sponsors at Centre Nautique de Plerin and in particular Sophie and Sebastien Le Cam that made this event so special...
"A truly great event"

(Possibly the first attractive shipping container photo ever taken? And for team Australia you will be pleased to know the bar is pretty much where the cameraman is stood!)
Ullman Sails B14 Nationals 2013 at Whistable YC
Many teams (including 2 boats from France) arrived early for some pre-event practice, only to be met by a warm 40 knot welcome from Whitstable. So it was an early start in the bar for many, enjoying the usual Whitstable YC hospitality.
Friday dawned with gusts well into the 30's and, following a less than optimistic briefing from PRO Dave Curno, the fleet set about bimbling and relaxing.
