Could also be something to do with the fact that since Hartleys started building the Wayfarer a couple or so years ago they have built somewhere in the region of 200 new boats... of which quite a few attended the nationals.

Despite what people have said about the Wayfarer, that is a very active class now and in fairness the Mk.4 is a very nice boat! (even if it is a little heavy, but that just goes against my Cherub grain!)

These blips are nearly always to do with an anniversary or an international championship combining the nationals. For international championships I have to extract the number of UK boats.

The Firefly blip was due to 60th anniversary celebrations - some of the others probebly are, too, when not due to preworlds or the like.

Yes, the Wayfarer does seem to have had a blip. Not much natural trend in 27-27-25-42-24-91 !!!

I see the GP14s managed a similar blip in 2003 when their Worlds were held just before/after the UK Nationals:
51-73-43-142-86-64-62

Firefly blip in 2006:
58-52-53-107-55-68

Enterprise in 2006:
56-67-72-107-56-53

And so on...

Oddly, I can't find a "nationals" report- unless they extracted GBR results from the "International championships" results (a fleet of over 100)

You can check the page at any time of year, though it isn't always mentioned on the homepage.

Is there a table in progress as the year goes on or do you
need to go to each class and check the entries?

That's something I've been thinking about - I just need to make it automatic as otherwise I've got over 1,000 links to add! I really should have thought about it when I first made the table but, as with many things on this site, it has grown organically and hindsight is a wonderful thing!
