The Phantom Class Association is delighted to announce that they have secured their 'Headline Sponsorship' for the 2021 National Championships.

Allen Brothers of Southminster in Essex are no stranger to the Phantom Class and have over the years, been keen supporters for Phantom sailing across the country. The Allen Brothers company has grown in the past 60 years plus, to become a major exporter, selling high-performance sailing hardware to the UK and the rest of the world.

2021 is a special year for the Phantom Class, which celebrates its 50th Anniversary, with plans for regional traveller events, a national regatta series and culminating with the National Championships which will be the highlight of the sailing year.

This year the honour falls to Stone Sailing Club and will be hosted between the 17th - 19th September. A firm favourite with Phantom sailors which is renowned for its hospitality.

It's even rumoured that Ben Harden - Head of Marketing at Allen Sailing will be competing this year!

The Phantom Class Association are also exhibiting at the virtual RYA Dinghy Show with information of our class, events and photographs of one of our newest boats in the class, kindly donated by Henry Ayres - sail number 1466.
