Thank you to the GP14 Association and hosts Mounts Bay Sailing Club. Congratulations to everyone who took part. The overall winners and World Champions were Chris White and Mike Senior.
A variable week of racing conditions, from ripping winds and squalls to champagne sailing meant an interesting week for sailors. The first day was cancelled (due to weather) and the last day saw a debate as to whether there was enough wind to go out. To enjoy the full series of race reports please go to:-
