Summers Championship Season!
It’s been a busy period for P&B sailors as they have been competing at the numerous sailing events around the globe, with the summers Championship season coming to a close we thought it would be a good time to shout about some of our sails / sailor’s successes!
Merlin Rocket National Championships.
Roger Gilbert and James Stewart powered by P&B sails took the overall title with a day to spare and a very consistent Chris Jennings and Pete Horn sailed to a well-deserved third overall.
In total P&B sails were used by three out of the top five with 70% of the top ten powered by P&B sails!
Mirrors
This year’s Mirror National Championships at Itchenor was bolstered by a number of parent/child combinations, many of them having National, European and World titles under their belt, yet 13-year-old Bertie Fisher & Felix Kent, powered by a full set of P&B sails took the title of 2016 Mirror National Champions. Well done guys.
GP14
GP14 National Championship held at Pwllheli Sailing Club – Fergus Barnham & Ellie Devereux took a well-deserved 3rd place overall in highly competitive fleet. Well done to Sam Watson & Andy Hunter on 5th place.

2000
2000 National Championship at Castle Cove Sailing Club. 1st overall well done to our very own P&B Musto race team Fergus & Serena.
505
Mike Holt & Carl Smith set out to take their third consecutive Worlds victory at the recently held SAP 505 Worlds in Weymouth. Unfortunately, they had to settle for second this year
Overall P&B sails came 2nd, 6th, 7th, 8th, 10th, over half the top 20 boats using P&B sails!
Fireball
Fireball Europeans Lake Garda Acquafresca YC - Up against inconsistent weather conditions P&B sails where 1st, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th & 9th overall at the Fireball Europeans. Congratulations to Claude and Rudi on a fantastic set of results!
