Last Chance for Early Bird Entry for 2019 Gul B14 Nationals

Restronguet Sailing Club, in Falmouth, will be hosting the three-day Nationals over the Early May Bank Holiday weekend (May 4th, 5th and 6th).

This is a great opportunity to get some Championship practice in with your new crew combos, prior to our Europeans and Worlds in Carnac, France at the end of July; or if you are not travelling to sunny Brittany then come on down and show your speed against the Europhiles who will be turning a blind eye to Brexit and going South in the Summer.

Racing will be across Saturday, Sunday and Monday and weather dependant will be in Falmouth Bay or Carrick Roads. Both course areas give the B14 plenty of opportunity to fly.

This year the Gul B14 Championship are benefiting from the generous support of several local Cornish businesses; Mylor Yacht Harbour, Visit Cornwall, D.R. Building Materials and Windsport.

Early Bird entry price on or before 25th March is £125. If you wish to benefit from this reduced entry fee, please download and fill in this entry form and pay via BACS transfer to the UK B14 Class Association (bank details are on the entry form).
