Allen Brothers is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the 2019 Finn World Masters, hosted by the Royal Danish Yacht Club in Copenhagen, Skovshoved, between the 7th and 14th June.

The Finn World Masters is a prestigious event which has been ongoing since 1970. Open to sailors above the age of 40, it is expected that around 250 Finn's will descend upon this idyllic Danish port for the 2019 edition. The fleet will be split into different age categories: Master (40-49), Grand Master (50-59), Grand Grand Master (60-69), Legend (70 - 79) and Super Legend (80+). Whilst there is a wide range of ages attending the event, there will remain one thing in common, the love for Finn sailing in a friendly but competitive fleet.

Liz Adams, Managing Director of Allen Brothers, commented "The Finn has a huge international following, and although its now been dropped from the Olympics, I doubt that will ever change! Its great to be part of such a huge event and rather than awarding those at the front of the fleet, who no doubt have won their fair share over the years! We will be rewarding the competitors who finish bang in the middle of each race."

Allen Brothers is awarding a very impressive haul of prizes for sailors finishing exactly middle of the fleet in every race. With a total of 56 potential winners, there is certainly going to be some happy faces once the week is through.

Allen Brothers have had a long relationship with the class, working closely with some of the leading class manufacturers they have designed and produced many of the custom hull fittings, booms, tillers etc. All of Allen Brothers hardware is designed, fabricated and distributed from its factory in Essex, UK. The company ensures all products are vigorously tested by its elite team of Olympic squad sailors. The company ensures race leading equipment by developing on the sailor's feedback.
