Saturday August 3rd will see the Enterprise fleet make their way to Mount's Bay for the 2019 Allen, North Sails and Selden National championships.

Mount's Bay always attracts a lot of interest from Enterprise sailors and this year is no different, with 46 boats already entered and the possibility of more to come. The entry is already over 25% up on 2018 and it is expected that this year's championship will build upon the great week at Exe SC.

The Entry list shows a real mix of experienced campaigners, talented youngsters and Enterprise newbies, either attending their first championships or stepping across from other fleets.

Having taken second position over recent years Phil Ford and Jane Humpage will be keen to get straight into the racing. Last year's winners, Dave and Chris Jackman will hope Mount's Bay delivers some surf and breeze, while Jeremy and Becca Stephens will be looking to make the most of sailing in their home waters to regain the title, they won in 2017.

This year's Inland Champions; Nigel and Andy Bird will be anticipating a good week, having returned to the circuit with some great results.

There have been some significant crew swaps in the run up to the event with Gabe Hill jumping into to the Riot Van with Martin Honor. Gabe's helm from last year Tim Sadler has Chris Keatley aboard and Chris's Helm from 2018; Alice Allen has James Hobson assisting her to contest the main and Ladies titles, while Ann Jackson and Jane Scutt stick with their regular crews Alan Skeens and Nick Scutt.

As part of the fleet's development programme for youngsters and newbies there will be a lot of focus on this year's buddy teams, providing a great chance to get some very useful support and advice each day.

The organisers have again invested in trackers as these have proved invaluable for post-race evaluation, as well as allowing everyone to follow the racing live and recorded online at

The Association is grateful to Noble Marine Insurance whose development funding has made this possible.

As well as a 10-race schedule there is a packed social calendar and it will be great to spend some time with the Osprey fleet, who are also at Mount's Bay, for what promises to be a fabulous week.

Thanks again to headline sponsors Allen Bros, North Sails, Selden Mast and all our other sponsors who help make this all possible every year.

Make sure you keep checking into for daily updates.
