The Solo Welsh Championships were dominated by Speed Sails, taking the top 5 places!
33 helms arrived to a sunny force 3 at Corus Sailing Club, Andy took the first race, Chris Brown took the 2nd and Ian Maclean took 3rd.
Saturday brought a gusty force 4, Andy won both races ahead of Chris Brown.
The top 5 sailors using Speed sails showed good consistent boat speed through all conditions. Andy and Chris were using the Seldon D+ rig, Ian Maclean was using the Super spar M7 and Ian Fox and Dave Mitchell were using the Seldon Cumulus. Therefore proving that Speed Sails are working well and catering for all the different types of rigs.
Three of the top five sailors were using the Speed Sails Championship winning hulls: Ian Fox, Dave Mitchell and Andy. Andy was also using a hull that was 3 years old, still showing that the hulls are lasting and performing well over time!
