The dust is settling after the 11th RS Feva World Championships in the beautiful Gulf of Mexico as 102 sailors have left Clearwater with fantastic memories, new friends and a weeks worth of Florida tan.

Since the RS Feva's involvement in the Americas Cup Endeavour Regatta the RS Feva Class has gone from strength to strength, with the class booming across Europe, North America, China, and New Zealand.

Clearwater didn't disappoint with varied conditions across the week providing challenging sailing for all competitors. With crystal blue waters, white sands and near perfect weather, which delivered every wind type we could wish for, perfect for crowning the RS Feva World Champions. Sailors had to perform in a mixture of conditions, which included showing a masterclass in big wind sailing on 'Super Saturday' when the weather gods treated the fleet to some epic windy condition.

Headline sponsors PA Consulting supported the class once again. CEO Alan Middleton commented:

"It's always a pleasure to support competition events for the RS Feva Fleet. This is our fifth World Championships and watching the sailors have such fun whilst acquiring team-working and leadership skills is fantastic. The racing has been close as ever, and the conditions varied. As our first visit to the States with the RS Feva Class, Clearwater didn't disappoint!"

Looking ahead to the RS Feva World Championships in 2019, will be hosted by Club Velico Castiglione della Pescaia from the 21st – 26th July 2019. Castiglione della Pescaia, is an ancient seaside town in the province of Grosseto, in Tuscany, Italy. The town is steeped in Italian culture and boasts stunning beaches, crystal blue coastlines, a vibrant town and majestic architecture.
