The Phantom Class Association are pleased to announce the up and coming National Championships and are delighted to be returning the Lyme Regis, one of the UK's premier sailing destinations.

With just over a week to go, final plans are being put into place to make the three day event one to remember with the traditional social scene over the course of the event and some classic racing provided by the experienced race officer - Allan Tyler and team.

It's too early to predict the forecast but the fleet are looking forward to the famous rolling seas off the Dorset coast.

The Phantom is just one of the many boats produced by Ovington Boats and the Class Association are thrilled they have decided to agree to be headline sponsors at this years event. Ovington Boats is one of the worlds most successful small boat building businesses specialising in the high-performance dinghy market, producing Olympic, international and national championship winning boats.

The class has also attracted other sponsors for the event from their long association with Allen Brothers - Performance Sailing Hardware together with Pinnell and Bax - the One Stop Sailing Shop and not forgetting the regular support from Vicky's Embroidery Service.

Runners, Riders and names in the frame.......who knows? There's lots of new talent out there with many of the recent National Champions in the entry list alongside some earlier winners returning the class.

It's going to be a tough call, however you can't ignore some of the big names in the class, but who knows there could be an new name on the National champions trophy in 2022!

NOR and SIs are available on the Lyme Regis Sailing Club website: lymeregissailingclub.com

Note no hard copies will be available at registration.
