National 12's Burton Week 2017

Weymouth Sailing Club, hosts of the 2017 Burton Week, would like to congratulate Graham Camm and Zoe Ballantyne of Burghfield Sailing Club for becoming the 2017 National 12 National Champions.

34 boats competed in this years championships and experienced all the delights Weymouth bay has to offer. This included a shifty light westerly, a perfect sea breeze day, and a very lumpy 20 knot south easterly. The varied conditions enabled 5 different race winners from the 7 race series.

A few thanks have to go to first Harry Owens, Oscar Rudd and Amber Poulloin for stepping in and crewing. They were rewarded quite handsomely by the Class in the prizes.

A huge thank you goes to Gary Owens and the dozens of volunteers who gave up their time to help the club run a successful 4 day event.

It was a pleasure to have the 12s at Weymouth Sailing Club, and we wish all the sailors every success in the future.


Gavin Poulloin
