Family Sprint 15 Crews

Windsport with their event trailer and team were there in support with replacement part and mobile workshop keeping the teams on the water and providing  Sprint 15 related coaching tips.

Good weather and excellent race officer  work ensured all the races were completed  with a clear “father and daughter” team winning many of the races making them 2016 overall national champions.

Sophia ( 8 yrs. old) and father Sean Mac Keene lead the way in the results racing two-up as one of the family sailing teams alongside  a strong fleet of uni-rigged single- handed sailors.

The success of the family duo  confirmed what a truly  versatile  family boat the Sprint 15 catamaran can be  providing  fun, speed, simplicity, class and technical challenge for a wide range of sailors.  The next   big  Sprint 15 event will be the “Grafham Catamaran Open 22-23 October  and the class welcome all Sprint 15 sailors  and those individuals / families keen to find out more about the class to join them over the weekend.
