Barlo Plastics Mumm 36 to compete in Mumm 36 World Championship 1999

June 17th – 25th 1999

Barlo Plastics, the Mumm 36 boat in the Chernikeeff British Team for the Champagne Mumm Admiral’s Cup, will compete with world-class sailors at the 1999 Mumm 36 World Championship, which will be sailed in the water on the Kieler Bucht. This internationally recognised event, organised by Kieler Yacht-Club in Germany, is between the 17th – 25th June, with warm-up racing from the 14th June.

This year’s Mumm 36 World Championship will provide an arena for fast and highly competitive racing. Barlo Plastics will be racing against teams from Italy, The Netherlands, Sweden and Germany, all fiercely competing for The Champagne Mumm World Cup Perpetual Trophy, which will be awarded for the first overall place. Trophies for the second and third place overall will also be awarded at the official prizegiving ceremony to be held on Thursday 24th June at 1900.

The Mumm 36 has been accepted on a worldwide basis as a high performance and extremely popular one design yacht, capable of producing fast and close racing. The Barlo Plastics’ Mumm 36 is the past ‘Corum’ world champion yacht, which won the 1995 Mumm 36 World Championships. Widely acknowledged as a fast boat, it will be crewed by a team of eight, headed by Adrian Stead, the current Farr 40 World Champion as tactician and Stuart Childerley, a past Soling World match-racing champion, as navigator.

Barlo Plastics successfully saw off strong competition to win overall in the Mumm 36 Class at the recent four-day Group 4 North Sea Regatta in Scheveningen, Holland. The Mumm 36 Class, whilst only a small fleet, saw some highly competitive racing. Commenting on their forthcoming regatta in Kiel Adrian Stead, tactician on Barlo Plastics Mumm 36, said: "This season has proved most successful to date, I was very pleased with our recent performance at the North Sea Regatta. We are now looking forward to further success in Kiel, moving us closer towards our goal to be the top Mumm 36 at the Champagne Mumm Admiral’s Cup in July."
