Hyde Sails team Simon Northrop and Josh O’Brien crowned National F18 Champions!

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

Congratulations to the Hyde Sails team on their win at the weekend. Simon and Josh raced with a full suite of Hyde Sails, with second and third place using Hyde Sails kites and a further 11 across the fleet. Hyde Sails OL manager Luke Yeates took second place with crew Oli Egan.



Race report from Simon Flack below with results from the class association.

2015 UK F18 nationals hosted by SCYC in the idyllic Abersoch was a sparkling success !!

Three fantastic days all totally different and testing in differing ways. Day one saw sparkling 10-12knts, day two racing delayed until late afternoon with shifty 4-7knts and day three (big Sunday) saw 19-25knts with wind over tide in race 8 and spectacular downwind legs leaving sailors wanting more more more !!!

Many whoops, giggles and yee haaa s were heard as boats crossed the finish line. Overall winners Simon Northrop & Josh O'Brien !! A very big well done chaps !!! They didn't have an easy task in being consistent in the mix of conditions and tough opposition but never the less came out on top to become F18 National Champions !!!
