The Flying 15 fleet have held their first ever World Championships in France. This event attracted 72 entries from across the Flying 15 world with teams representing Australia, Belgium, Great Britain, Hong Kong, Ireland and of course France itself.



The event was won for the third time in a row by the team of Graham Vials and Chris Turner from Royal Lymington Yacht Club with 4 firsts, a second and a sixth (with one discard) beating the nearest contenders Jeremy Davy and Martin Huett from Draycote Water Sailing Club by 8 points.



The first non-British team in 18th place was Philippa Packer and Dean McAullay from the Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club in Perth, Western Australia. Philippa was also the first female (and female helm) in the event.



The French home team dominated the Silver Fleet results with their champion of the event being Christian Hardy and Thomas Camus of the Yachting Club du Pays de Fontainbleau south of Paris.



The venue of Crozon Morgat on the Crozon Peninsula (which forms the north shore of Douanenez Bay south of Brest) was chosen after the original venue of Hyeres became unavailable. However competitors found an excellent welcome in this small port town where everything was in walking or cycling distance. This made for a lively post sailing atmosphere every evening as competitors could be found in every restaurant and bar. The event had been publicised extensively in the local shops and tourist material, and all expressed a great satisfaction with the event as a whole.



The warmth of the welcome extended to the event included a reception hosted by the matriarch of the Peugeot family in their holiday “cottage” in the village.



The sailing was held a short distance out of the Morgat harbour by a well-run team from the local club and a Jury team from across Europe. They soon had the measure of the fleet’s tendency to being early at the start line and curbed the enthusiasm w
