Yachting World Dayboat National Championships
Published 14:07 on 24 Aug 2022
A strong fleet of 22 boats gathered at Brixham Yacht club over the week of the 23rd July, to compete in the YWDB Class National Championships. All the major clubs with fleets of DBs were well represented.
In addition, we were also joined by two entrants who travelled hundreds of miles to be in Brixham. Tommy Bennett from Scotland brought his fastidiously restored 1956 clinker built boat, and 20 year old Jack Young from Royal Cork Yacht club joined us with his immaculate cold moulded version built by his grandfather Don Young.
This year we also had six young sailors aged between 7-14 years old, crewing their fathers on alternate days.
Brixham Yacht Club is an ideal venue for DB Week as they are able to accommodate the boats either on shore or afloat on their pontoon.
